MIT's origami club, OrigaMIT, led the effort to build a Level 3 Menger Sponge out of folded business cards. This was part of a larger, global project sponsored by Queen Mary University of London.

A Menger Sponge is a three-dimensional fractal, which can be made by taking a cube and cutting out a square section through the center in each of the three directions; then each of the resulting smaller cubes is cut out in the same way, and so on until you've removed infinitely many pieces. The Mega Menger Project aimed to construct the largest Menger Sponge ever built using only business cards.
