Posts Tagged ‘The Toymaker paper toys’

My friend Marilyn (or Maz to us Aussies) is a fabulous paper artist.

In the past, we’ve had great fun playing with all the free paper toys on her website. It’s a great holiday resource for parents with small children, although I  personally find it very soothing and meditative cutting and folding all her clever creations. We made her Easter eggs and baskets earlier in the year, and they were very popular (particularly filled with chocolates).

I recently purchased Marilyn’s new book from Amazon, and thought you might enjoy a sneak preview inside its covers.  Oh, and it’s worth mentioning that all the pieces are perforated, so they can just be popped out without the need for scissors.

Here are the paper toys on offer:

…and the couple of pieces we’ve made so far.  They’ll grace our dining table this Christmas!

The books are available at Amazon.com for just $7.95 each, and they’re currently on a “buy 4 for the price of 3” offer.

My friend Maz is a lovely, clever, generous soul, and her work brings a burst of joy and whimsy into our lives.  She doesn’t know I’m writing this post (surprise, Maz!).  I’d like to encourage you to visit and enjoy all the great stuff on her website, and to think about purchasing a book or two – there aren’t enough creative, giving people in this world, and we need to support them wherever we can!
