Mechanical Papercraft Puppets

Make vintage papercraft toys. These mechanical paper puppets are from the 20’s and the vintage artwork is simply spectacular. Rob says “Not the fancy new papercraft with .pdf files and colour printers – this is the papercraft your parents or grandparents did. I’ve almost finished making the duck. (read: I had to put it down after an hour or so, realizing I was spending an entire evening making a paper duck) I’ve found that a good substitute for the pins that hold things together together(“Here, kids, here’s a whole box of pins! have fun!”) are small pieces of copper wire stripped out of cat5 network cable. Put them through the holes, fold them over, and secure with tape. Spray adhesive is good for pasting the printouts onto some heavy card stock.” Thanks Rob! Link.
