afd005 ~  Sewing Patterns and Delineator Faux Magazine (1:6)
Sizes:
27mmwx38mmh (pattern envelope as sample size)
Number of Pieces: 6 varied pattern envelopes (front and back artwork, 1 faux Delineator Magazine, 3 vellum pattern panels

Description:  Pattern envelopes are a composite of real and fictional artwork from several different style eras, this way you can accentuate your particular era during staging. The patterns themselves are not true-to-scale but are made strictly for staging your dolly and are aged looking and translucent. Great to stage with fabrics. Lastly a Delineator magazine with one set of open pages artwork and 'fluffed' with plain paper pages that are glued together to give the look and feel of a real magazine. FYI a Delineator magazine with actual antique pages can be found in the book section of this page.

On-line tutorial can be found by clicking here. This is a collection of 1:12 scale items, however, the assembly is the same. Note: Hole puncher for thread spool tops/bottoms should be a 1/4" standard office punch.

Magazine tutorial can be found by clicking here. This is 1:12 scale, but the assembly is the same.

afd007a ~  Sewing Basket, Notions and Delineator Faux Magazine (1:6)
Sizes:
45mml x 35mmw x 26mmh (sewing basket as sample size)
Number of Pieces: 6 bias tape packets, three embroidery floss skeins, 3 button/snap cards, sewing basket with 'hinged' lid, 1 faux Delineator Magazine, 3 vellum pattern panels

Description:  Sewing basket is made of heavy paper but looks so like real wicker. Basket is completely lined! Real embroidery floss is included in the kit, and a fourth band is included for back up. The bias tape packets have separate label bands so you can use slender ribbon to simulate the real think if you elect to use ribbon instead of the fake printed bias tape. The two button cards and snaps card are copies of the real thing. For staging purposes, I placed a tiny dot of clear dimensional paint on each snap and button and you may want to do the same. To round out the sewing scene, a faux Delineator magazine is included.  FYI a Delineator magazine with actual antique pages can be found in the book section of this page.

Number of Pieces: 6 faux thread spools and 'hinged' Corticelli storage box, two needle cases 3 Corticelli 2-sided advertising figures, laminated measuring tape, and faux Delineator Magazine

Description:  All items are in all three sewing kits are derived from actual antique and vintage sewing products. The figures are actual Corticelli thread adverts and might look cute with a tasseled loop to put on your dolly's wrist. The thread spools have actual labels laminated for strength. Feel free to spin actual thread around the printed thread. The two needle cases look so real you could swear you could sew with them. Keep the spools safe in the reproduction Corticelli box. The  Delineator magazine is color coordinated and the children's theme goes well with the advert cards.

On-line tutorial can be found by clicking here. This is a collection of 1:12 scale items, however, the assembly is the same. Note: Hole puncher for thread spool tops/bottoms should be a 1/4" standard office punch.

Yearly Paper Minis Contests
for Years 2007-2014
Each year Paper Minis sponsors a Christmas time contest. In the 2013-2014 season the contest ran in tandem with the new line of Paper Minis diorama kits for acrylic ornaments.

Because I have received several requests from readers curious to see past contestants and winners I attempted to compile as many as I could from the last 7 years. You can see all seven years from the following gateway page.
