Summer Diary: Day 45: Paper Toys

While browsing flickr yesterday, looking for free backgrounds for the "Word Art" project, I stumbled onto a group called Vintage Crafts, Print-&-Make Paper Toys. The group is dedicated to collecting scanned images of unfinished vintage paper projects so that people like me (& you!) can print them out & make them ourselves. It truly is a paper toy heaven. I printed so many toys off for my girls & these are a few we made today. 

The girls each chose a jointed doll. I printed them onto white cardstock. After the girls cut out the pieces, I helped to attach brads to the limbs.

Here are the finished jumping jacklady:

I made this project:

And I can't wait to make THIS kitchen scene, THIS face game (& THE ONE UP TOP too), THIS French village...
Oh my. I could really play all day!


  1. Wow, what a treasure trove you've found! Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. This looks great! Thanks for sharing the link. Sometimes I wish we lived closer, so we could all play together. But then, we probably wouldn't get anything else done!

  3. Hmmm... you got my creative side spinning. Thanks!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Every time you do, I do a little happy dance. For reals.
