Announcing PaperTigers’ Paper Tiger!

PaperTigers' Paper Tiger: Cut Out and MakeJust in time for February 14th, when we will be wishing everyone a Happy Year of the Tiger, we at PaperTigers are delighted to be launching a Tiger of our own: one that we hope will find a home in every corner of the globe. And when you have created your personalised tiger, we hope you will send us a photo for us to post here on our blog.

We have talked for a long time about having a “real” paper tiger and we are very grateful to husband-and-wife team, authors Sally and Stewart Walton for giving us permission to reproduce the tiger from their book, Make Your Own: Paper Jungle (A Golden Book, 1994). My children were given this book as a present a few years ago and have made most of the animals several times – they make great gifts for grandparents, who, of course, don’t mind how many times they receive a toucan or a chameleon!

The tiger, in pdf format, comes with complete instructions. On page 1 you’ll find a ready-painted version and on page 2 there are two plain outlines – perfect for those who want to give their imaginations free rein and for making multiple copies…

So get going – and send photos of your Tiger(s) to blog(at)papertigers(dot)org – we can’t wait to see your Paper Tigers and what a great way to see in the New Year! Gung Hei Fat Choy! Xin Nian Kuai Le!

    Such a lovely idea! I love the painted tiger but won’t be able to resist inventing my own colours on the plain one. Is it okay for so-called adults (me) to participate?

    I added your tiger to my own Chinese New Year post. http://thebookchook.blogspot.com/2010/02/get-ready-for-chinese-new-year.html

    Absolutely – please do :-) And please do send us a photo – we’d love to see what directions your creativity takes you.

    And thank you for including the tiger in your post – I’m just going to head over and read it now…
