Craft Project: Window to Fairyland

A couple weeks back a commenter (Rane) referred me to "The Toymaker". It's a website with lots of free paper toy patterns to download. It's also where I got the pattern for the "window to fairyland"toy (picture above). There are patterns for boxes, cards, and educational toys on the site as well. I definitely recommend checking it out.

The fairyland toy was really simple and quick to make. I envision it used for a favor or craft project for a fairy themed birthday party. Perhaps one could glue a picture of each child attending the party to the inside of the toy. Glitter and embellishments would also look nice glued to the fairy picture.

I have the Toymaker book - it's so beautiful, I haven't been able to bring myself to make any of the projects. Time to scan the pages, I guess.

i love that site. i've only made one thing from it, but that's because my daughter is still at the stage where she likes to see what things look like torn up. :)
