Paper Toy Improv Kit

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

I posted just the other day about a paper toy improvisation activity.  I enjoyed it so much that I put together a special kit.

Voila! The tools of the trade...

There you go.  From left to right  – a small steel ruler, scissors, an old plastic card (partially hidden under the scissors for bending paper – tell you more about it next time), a bunch of tweezers, a cutter, and a clutch pencil.  Just wanted to share. Cheers!

Paper Toy Improv #1- Spacecraft

Monday, November 15th, 2010

Vinsart, a very talented artist and paper toy enthusiast came up with a very brilliant idea!  Go check out his blog post at Nice Paper toys to read about it!

Paper Toy Improv! Design a paper toy from any piece of paper. You can create whatever form you like but you can only use the following tools:

  • Paper /card stock / whatever is lying around
  • Scissor
  • Craft Knife
  • Pencil
  • Ruler

That’s right, no glue or software to help you.

So I decided to try it out.  I have a whole bunch of unused business cards lying around so I experimented with a couple.  Below is what I came up with!

Paper Toy Improv 001 Ship 1

Paper Toy Improv 001 Ship 1

I think the ship took me about 10 minutes to complete – drawing a quick “template” on the card, cutting, folding, and a whole lot of “scissoring”.  Not bad I think.  I might release an official non-improv paper toy based on this “piece”.

Needless to say, I had a lot of fun.  I found it sort of liberating.  I suggest you try it out.  Cheers!

Hello World!

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

Welcome to my brand spanking new blog about Paper Toys.  This is my first official post on the site.   This is also my first blog (EVER!).

I am still in the process of getting this blog up and running, so no paper toy goodies to show just yet.  I should be ready to launch this site very soon though.  So watch out!  The toys are coming!

Cheers!
