Puppets, Jumping Jacks And Other Paper People (Dover Origami Papercraft)

Michael Grater is known and admired internationally for his expertise in papercraft. This delightful book is filled with his imaginative designs for a dazzling array of paper toys that are as much fun to make as they are to play with and share with friends. Recycled newspapers, aluminum foil, giftwrap, cardboard, and other salvaged papers may be used in many of the projects. Only a few simple tools and supplies are needed — scissors, glue, a stapler, crayons, felt-tip pens, and watercolors or poster paints.Clearly illustrated step-by-step instructions enable papercraft enthusiasts — including children and novices — to make these paper toys: puppets, jumping jacks, acrobats, angels, clowns, spinning and swinging figures, funny faces, masks, and more. Among the specific toys are a jack-in-the-box, sculpted newspaper figures, glove puppets, dancing dolls, a single-fold Christmas figure, a Punch and Judy, and other attractive creations.Mr. Grater's expert directions make folding, cutting, and coloring easy. He has also provided helpful suggestions for finding the different types of paper and cardboard required for assembling each project. The result is an exciting and appealing book offering hours of creative satisfaction for anyone who likes working with paper.

This book just arrived and I love it. Excellent photographs and illustrations accompanied by clear, engaging writing. Mr. Grater has produced a book that will inspire me to try many of his paper and cardboard designs -- and, having done that, go on to design more of my own. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes to make things that move or entertain.

What a fun book. It gives you the basics to create your own stuff. You can create endless projects.

Great value if you are into jumping jacks easy to read and good ideas

This book helped a lot for making jumping jacks.
