08-02-2019: This time, I received a really nice email from Helen, telling me how much she enjoys building papercrafts!
Because she considers herself still a “novice” papercrafter, she finds the step-by-step pictures I try to make to make instructions for my papercrafts very useful; for now, she likes to build cute papercrafts that are usually also a bit simpler for beginners. But as you can see, I think she managed to build my papercraft Chancellor Cole very well! ;o)
It’s extra impressive, because she actually made Chancellor Cole half the size as normal, which makes the parts even smaller…! Because Chancellor Cole has such small feet, she glued a small transparant piece of plastic so he won’t fall over.
Helen also has another tip: she stuffs her papercrafts with pieces of bubble wrap packaging she has left over (after bursting the bubbles first of course, which must be fun to do in itself as well! ;o) so that the papercrafts will be more solid and stronger when put together.
If you look closely, you will see something else special, though: Helen has decorated Chancellor Cole’s hats with some little gemstones (and apparantly he also found a really big gem which makes him very happy ;o) This way, he fits in very nicely with some of Helen’s real figurines: picture
That’s another thing Helen likes to do: creating little “fairy tale” scenes with the papercrafts she made. She sent me a picture of some of the displays with other papercrafts she made: picture
I think the little sceneries look very nice, and it’s a smart way to display and enjoy the papercrafts she made! ;o)
Thank you for your nice story and for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!
