Make a “Chakra Catcher” Paper Toy with Briana

Hello and may this post find you well!

Today, I’d like to perhaps take you back to your childhood days of folding paper notes and making paper toys. This could be a fun gift for someone this holiday season, or it could be something you use, just for the joy it brings!

Supplies Used:

Step 1:
Scrape paint over a piece of ledger paper or another sturdy copy paper, while having a 12x12 stencil underneath. I used the Sea Foam stencil. See the fun texture?

Step 2:
Measure the square size you’d like to work with. I measured out an 8x8 inch square on the painted ledger paper.

Step 3:
Follow the directions for making a “Cootie Catcher” paper toy in the book mentioned above.

Note: I am NOT a perfect measurer or cutter or paper folder. So, I want to assure you that this will still work with some inaccuracies.

Step 4:
Now it’s time to add some Artistcellar magic, using the Chakras Series Pocket Stencils! Apply paint through the chakra stencils, using a cosmetic wedge, to the inside flaps of your soon to be “Chakras Catcher” paper toy!

Step 5:
Then apply paint through more of the Chakras Series pocket stencils to the outside squares of your paper toy.

Step 6:
Add the final or sixth chakra stencil to the middle of the paper toy.

Here’s another look at the outside stencils.

Here’s the paper toy, “Chakra Catcher,” in action:

May you find much joy in making and giving your paper toy!

Blessings to you,
