Because paper can be made totally different toys.We will tell you how to make a paper toy "Magic Picture".In finished form, it will look like this: there is an envelope in which to insert a card with a color image;but, once in an envelope picture "of itself" becomes black and white.Prepare a color image.
In order to get the original color image, it is sufficient to use a color printer and a dense photographic paper (printer can not "take" cardboard).The image itself, in principle, could be anything, but some of the nuances, all the same, it is worth considering ... Best of all, if this is not picture, more "illustrative" image is more advantageous.Firstly, associative drawn picture will be better understood in this toy, and secondly - in the image should be very clear contou
Prepare a "black and white" picture.
At this stage it is necessary to understand the secret of the focus.Cut color image (for sure you print the image on the larger paper).Cushioning get a card with transparent film and to seal it from the back side.Attention!prokleivat film should only by lengths of cards, at least one so-called "end" should be left free.Make sure that the film never advocated the card edge with a pattern.Now we take a marker and draw out all the contours and details of dark color image.That is, in fact, black-and-white copy of the pattern is exactly on the film.Carefully review your image, to understand exactly what it is necessary to trace the line.
Now that we have both options images, proceed to step sleduyuschimu.
Glue an envelope.
basic rule - the envelope is supposed to be as thin as possible.That is, it must allow only accommodate two cards and film.So, to understand the secret of our toys: from the edge of the envelope to a window on each side leave at five millimeters;in this window we do not see the back wall of the envelope, as it seems, and pasted it into a white card, which is attached only at the base of the envelope;Card itself is a millimeter on two narrower than the color, and it is placed between the transparent film and a color picture (for it is what we leave a gap).It should look as follows: when a color picture is included in the envelope, the secret white card gradually closes it is, on top of this white paper "fits" with the contours of the film applied to it - and the illusion that the image itself loses its color.
So, according to this principle of envelope glue:
cut out of cardboard (preferably color) model of the future of the envelope (the envelope should get on with the color pattern a couple of millimeters wider than the card);
cut out the window;
glue to the base of the future envelope white card;
glue himself envelope.
Place the colored card in an envelope.
It's very simple: put a card with a color image in an envelope so that the internal (secret) white card entered between the film and the colored card.
By and large, the toy is ready.
Think about how you can make a "lock" item to the card with a picture can not be completely removed from the envelope, because if you do it, the secret will be revealed immediately.It is clear that the child is in any way disassemble toys, but you can try to keep developing point: let the baby first try to understand how the mechanism, and then check your assumptions.Making paper toys with your child is very exciting.
