Paper Crafts from Pilllpat

papercrafts

Remember these, or something similar as a kid? The North American versions weren’t as quaint as this, and so that’s why we think these French ones are so worth re-visiting this very sweet craft.

This gem isn’t the only one you’ll find if you visit Pilllpat’s flickr photostream (yes there's three "L's"). If you don’t already know, she has an amazing collection of scanned ephemera to waste hours looking through. We especially love this newspaper stand. If you wish to build this one you can find the models here and here. See more here.

After thought: Or just print these out and frame!

these look japanese to me! I was just in Japan and they still make these for kids. Many kids' magazines will have pull-outs with this kind of diorama in them.
fun!

ouch... you got spammed up there...

This would have been one of my favorite things as a child. I could have spent hours cutting and assembling then playing, so fun.
