Cut And Assemble My Sanity

As a child I mostly played puzzles, books, and crafts. One of my favorites was Cut and Assemble books. You got a book, say the Neuschwanstein Castle, and inside were pages and pages of pieces you were to cut out. Glue was applied to the tabs and, with careful manipulation, you created your castle. Or Taj Mahal, or sailing ship, or working clock.

I loved those books. I remember feeling so empowered when my mom got me my first X-acto knife.

I was three.

Kidding! I was 29.


What I Made:

All I can say is thank you Canon for having the coolest Cut and Assemble projects online. Free ones!

I printed this guy up and made him during a car trip into the mountains. I was able to do this without the instructions so I have to say these are very well designed though most of them are too complex for my brood. I would recommend printing in color if you can.

Someday I'll let the kids have all the fun.

    Oooo. The Stegosaurus is gorgeous. And Bambiraptor. And Cheetah. And Tiger. And all of them.

    I think I'm going to need to buy more ink.
