Brana and the Rabbit Radost - Paper Toy with printable template

Brana and the Rabbit Radost, my latest completed paper toy is a girl dressed for winter with a conspicuously large hat. The hat is removable, revealing the rabbit Radost, Brana's true friend.

Brana and Radost are both Slavic names. Brana means "to protect" and Radost means "happiness".


The hat removed, revealing the faithful Radost.

  2. Hello, I really like your projects - they all have this weird sense of humour - very sophisticated. If I could ask for a beautiful paper hous for Brana and Radost - a small cute kitchen with bedroom in a twisted weird style with lots of small accessories, that would be a great deal of fun for my little sister as she already loves Brana and her friend. That would be a gread development to make a series or even to create whole little paper world of Brana and her friends... What do you think of this idea?

    Please contact me if you wish to ask for details, here' my email address: mahlerian@wp.pl, I would be honoured and glad,

    Tom

    1. Hi Tom, thanks for the comment. I really enjoy hearing how people feel about my paper toys. Great idea for a paper house! I will give it some thought. What kind of items would you see in a Brana house, in the kitchen, living room etc?

    2. Bryan, I was thinking about something compact, easy to set up and store... Maybe check out some of my findings here to give you a design idea:

      1) a simple 1-rooom paper house with most items drawn on the walls and with a few real objects

      2) a very stylish, graphically tasty diorama with a background wall and nice equipment

      3) a nice simple gramophone with records

      4) a very tricky paper house with revealed interior with many nice details

      9) a nice fairytale house - something that would be right for your style (apart from the candy colours)

      ----------------------------------------------------------------------

      10) a very tricky designed folding house that can be folded and transportet in a format of a small booklet

      and for any further search I recommend the site: http://dollhousepaper.blogspot.com

      As for the items, I had a long talk with my sister and she says most of them could be drawn on the walls (like a clock, pictures, windows etc.). Doors could be moveable (simply by cutting it in two sides). And furniture? In the kitchen maybe an old-style cooker with opening oven, a kitchen table with chairs and a small cabinet with jars and bottles of home-made delicacies). In the bedroom a bed with moveable blanket (simply piece of paper fold in C-shape), a wardrobe (maybe with opening door)and a bookcase with books and an old-time radio or gramophone - that's for sure!

      Of course this is just a small selection of her choice :-) Please feel free if you need any more details. And thank you so much for your response - hope it will bring great results!
