I wrote about David Landis’s Desktop Gremlins website in the past, linking to free, printable paper craft projects you can do at home. His website still has a long list of them, including Rippy, a Halloween themed craft, which is only available until Halloween. Now David is working on a whole book, printed on very thick paper, to make it easier than ever to assemble your own paper crafts.
The Desktop Gremlins project on Kickstarter will fund the book, if successful in their campaign. David’s video tells you all that you need to know.
To make these paper crafts, all you do is cut, build, and display. No glue or tape required. Just scissors, and a bit of time. You can get the book and a bookmark for only $25. This book will be Volume 1, so if the campaign is successful, I’m sure we can expect a Volume 2 to follow.
The creatures are delightfully cute and interesting, with fun, colorful graphics. David’s creativity supplies enough different kinds of paper crafts for creating an adventure, or just an extensive display. The book will contain 20 different creatures, 14 of which are brand new to the book. The others have been featured on the Desktop Gremlins website.
The Kickstarter campaign goes until November 18, so visit David’s website to try out some of his projects (including the official GeekDad and GeekMom paper crafts!), and then back his project. The book is estimated to be delivered next May, so it will be the perfect summer activity book for your kids (or yourself).
