A novel approach for fabricating self-formed highly ordered arrays of micro-bubble constructs from patterned silk microscopic sheets with self-encapsulation capability is established by confining frontal dissolution of a supporting sacrificial material and encapsulating the material underneath the ultrathin silk coating. The number, dimensions, and shape of the micro-bubbles can be readily controlled by the geometry of the silk sheets.
