Nice Paper Toys

I don't see any mention of electronic cutters or templates for electronic cutters on paper toy sites.

I'm thinking of the Cricut, Silhouette SD, Wishblade, eCraft, and several others. I would think the digital cutters would give excellent cutting and simplify building toys.


Personally, I have a Cricut (it's my wife's but I use it) and I've been turning templates into files that can be cut by the machine. The results aren't super accurate because the Cricut has no way to detect where it is on the paper. The Silhouette and Wishblade have sensors to read calibration lines on paper and cut accurately.


Here's the NPT mascot I made with the Cricut: nicepapertoy.jpg

I always thought it would be cool to have a cutting machine like that. But I can't justify buying one. When you get yours can I borrow it? ;) can do what with a Cricut!?


Here's a few other things I've done with the Cricut:



Harlancore's boxpunx.


You can see the misalignment/misregistration.

there's a few people on this site that have those. I think matt hawkins has one and I can't remember who else. says they're amazing once you calibrate it right.
Interesting. How much do these bad boys usually cost?

About $200 US.
