Spooky paper toys!

A little early for Halloween, Ray O'Bannon creates charming and spooky paper toys--some with moving parts--that you can print out and build at home.

There is a string involved somewhere, and I'm not sure about the handle on the bat, but yes, the author says print them out on card stock.

I hope I have the patience to put some of these together in October.

I'm pretty sure the following has been posted in the past, but worth mentioning in this thread as well... the "Gathering for Gardner" Dragon

These are lovely. But cardstock and x-acto knives? I foresee stitches in my future.

HuronBob, I made the dragon, but it didn't work as well as the one in the video. I think it has something to do with the shadows in my office.

I find the dragon works best if you bend its head back a little bit.

This worked great for me. Suggestion to those who try this: after building it, let it be for a while - I had to let my mind forget about it a little so I could see the effect. ALso, closing one eye helped a lot too.
