Each miniature Paper Minis™  is individually printed to achieve an unparalleled level of color and print quality on the finest papers.   The miniature detail is so defined the signature thimble is placed in each photo as proof of scale.  None of the pre-printed Paper Minis products needs to be sealed or sprayed. For your information the printed surfaces have been tested under running water and allowed to air dry. The print surface is colorfast and does not run. This is important to know if you want to "antique" your Paper Mini. However, be careful to not unnecessarily saturate, which will cause a slight ripple in the paper surface.

Most designs are very easy to assemble. Nevertheless, you may visit the on-line library of tutorials and many photo tutorials.

Note: sizes of miniatures are given in millimeters for accuracy. For your information 1"=25.4 mm

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.

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.

bc210fd ~ Costumes of All Nations 1:6                                               
Published by W. Duke, Sons & Co.
Sizes:
45mmwx31mmhx6mmd
Number of Pieces: Laminated magazine style cover, 24 semi-gloss one-sided pages (as was the original album)

Description: Tobacco companies were the first to generate souvenir cards for their products, similar to the baseball-player cards packed with bubble gum today. A souvenir album of the type here, published by a cigarette company, was an extension of the purchasing incentive of cards. The cards and albums were purchased with 75 to 100 coupons packed with cigarettes back in the day. This particular album was issued about 1889 with the images of card series Costumes of all Nations. The series depicts popular actors and actresses of the time dressed in indigenous or ethnic costumes. Gorgeous illustrated pages show the card faces. To complement the album’s “cards” were the full-page illustrations of super-famous actresses such as Lillian Russell and Lily Langtree. The chromolithography printing of the source album was preformed by Knapp Litho., and is far scarcer than the individual cards.
