The 2014-2015
Winter Holidays Contest
1:12, 1:6 and/or 1:3 Gingerbread House

Each year since 2007 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. In response to requests from readers curious to see past contestants and winners, I compiled as many as I could from the last seven years. You can see all seven years from the following gateway page: Gateway to Paper Minis Christmas/New Year season contests' winners and contestants.

This year the contest will include more scales. We are going back to the original gingerbread cottage decorating contest and anything goes! Use paint, or pens, or fimo, or jewelry findings, or rhinestones, or bits of paper, or fabric, or whatever...seriously, anything goes!!

The only rule is you have to use the house foundation. If you want to make your own trees or fence or chimney feel free to do so. If you do not want to cut out windows or the door that is O.K. too. To participate you must be receiving the weekly newsletter. You may enter as many houses as you like. Please contact
Ann-Vanture@PaperMinis.com and ask to be added to the mailing list.

First Prize: $75 of Paper Minis Products of your choice
Second Prize: $50 of Paper Minis Products of your choice
Third Prize: $25 of Paper Minis Products of your choice

pc1is077: Ornament ~ Train Village Platform and Settings (1:12)

Size: for 100mm acrylic ornament (NOT INCLUDED)

Description: Everything you need to create the content of this ornament including platform and diorama miniature scene is included in this pre-printed kit. The following is the inventory list: train locomotive, 2 train cars, train caboose, 2 stand-up cows, 2 stand-up pigs, 2 stand-up rabbit family, 4 houses, 1 café, 1 school house, 1 barn and silo, 1 house of worship (not used in sample), 7 stand-up evergreen trees, and brads for connecting train cars. This little town is reminiscent of the large sugar eggs of an era gone by that contained a hidden vignette of a town or nativity viewed through a tiny peep hole. The details printed on the village and train are so defined and intricate it is hard to belief that the tallest building structure is less than 1”! The conception and design of this tiniest village has evolved over many years and is quite unique.

Pre-printed kit includes the two-tiered platform sized for 100m acrylic ornament.

Paper Minis pre-printed kits and digital projects are designed for easy-assembly, for 8-year-olds to 80+, require only a few inexpensive tools and adhesives, take up very little space in a tight little household, do not require a dollhouse, are beautiful, made with the highest quality print materials, and are very affordable. You must spend wisely these days, so the complimentary projects exist so you can learn the hobby before making a purchase. Paper Minis are fun to make and admire, a great distraction from our daily stresses, and just right for anyone on a tight budget. The perfect pastime!  ~ Ann-Vanture@PaperMinis.com

Free Example of Paper Minis

Are you hesitant to purchase any pre-printed Paper Minis? Is it hard to believe that Paper Minis prints could possibly be that much better than what you print at home? If you have never seen a Paper Minis pre-printed kit before, I will send you an examples card for you to evaluate if you send me your name and snail-mail address to ann-vanture@paperminis.com  Please, this offer is for those who are contemplating placing an order in the very near future and want to see the quality of a Paper Minis pre-printed kit prior to placing an order. ~Thank you, Ann at Paper Minis
 

Complimentary Projects:
Victorian Style Desk Set
In Five Standard Scales

October 31, 2014: The four desk set projects shown below are different from my normal offerings. I want to use this series as a way to introduce people to Paper Minis. Please share the following files with blue background only--without changes, as is only, and this series only--to everyone in your special interest group or on-line forum. That means you must keep them as PDF files. If you change the file format, you change the image sizes and then they are no longer accurately scaled!! Plus you lose detail in the images. My suggestion is to use the photos in your display and have a link to open the actual project pdf files. The photos are optimized for the internet.

These files will help crafters learn the paper miniatures hobby and introduce new viewers to Paper Minis. Keep in mind your print-outs will not be the quality of a pre-printed Paper Minis kit but good enough to be fun and introduce Paper Minis! NOTE: more projects for learning are available to those who receive the e-newsletter. E-mail Ann-Vanture@PaperMinis.com and ask to be included in the weekly mailings.
