Nice Paper Toys

The Papertoy Network!

Hello everyone! Recently(just yesterday) I ran out of card paper for my papertoy making. But I feel very ashamed of myself this time around because I ran out of 200 sheets of paper in just about 2 or 3 months. This is the fastest so much paper has disapeard, most of it was spent on papertoys(many of wich still lay in my "to do" pile) the other sheets were spent on drawings( a LOT of which were total failures :(.... ) so much of the paper ended up as trash and were utterly usless to me. I felt terrible about myself yesterday seeing so much good paper just go to waste nothing made me feel better yesterday. Today Im ok now(still feeling a bit dreadful but seeing Matts new toy for March cheered me up :)... ). I really felt bad because Im a total nature lover. Im always caring about animals and plants and I hate how so much of it is disapearing from this world. So I want to go even greener in life by changing a big part of my life: papertoys. I want to know what is the most recommended, most durable recycled paper? I would feel a lot more better knowing that my future papertoys and drawings are being made from old recycled paper and not new ones from poor cut-down trees. So which is most recommended for a more eco-friendly collection?

I feel the same way. I work as a janitor and all my workers are constantly changing toilet paper and paper towel rolls before they are completely used up. I end up pulling out tons of half used rolls from the trash.
I plan on taking up paper mache, myself...but, for now, it makes good pet bedding.
I use 'failed' drawings for Paper Mache sometimes or something to lean on when I'm using the old Pritt Stick.

Yo Gab,

Relax, those few sheet you use don't compare to the way multi-nationals take down the rain forrest.

I got friends worrying when they haven't read the full issue of the Saturday papers.

Just recycle your paper and boycott products from

or am I gettin' too political now.
