Paper Tiger (and Elephant and Gnu and…)

You never know where things will take you…

The spring holiday has been spent with Oma and Opa. Opa, to everyone’s delight, is a master paper-airplane builder. So day one was spent in the construction and racing of looping racers.

Day two found the re-discovery of a predilection for paper hats.

Then things got weird. Some paper furniture was cut and taped up for Trixie’s dollhouse.

And if you're going to have furniture, then why not an menagerie?

(I start to fold and cut)

Here are the results…

Why not pull out the scissors a give it a go?
