I love to design and build articulated paper puppets and dolls.

Nearly ten years ago (as of the writing of this post), I began making animated short films with articulated paper puppets, one of the earliest and simplest forms of stop-motion animation. During this time, I rekindled my childhood love for paper dolls and puppets and found the process of making my own puppets very rewarding. In early 2019, I decided to share my custom creations on Etsy as well as on my own personal blog (where you are now). The puppets and dolls you see here are my own designs. Much like their creator, they are off-beat and unusual. These are not your Grandma’s paper crafts.

If you prefer to shop for these products on Etsy, my shop is Papercut Puppets.


Created by visual artist, feminist and mother Jennifer Linton, all twenty-six letters of the Roman alphabet are rendered in original illustrations which address either an “anxiety” or a “desire.” While based on the format of a child’s alphabet book, this book is most assuredly for adults as it navigates the tricky territory of motherhood.

Lady Krampus magnet

Perhaps you’ve heard of Krampus, the goat-like demon of Germanic tradition who arrives with Saint Nicholas during the Christmas season? While St. Nick rewards the well-behaved children with gifts, its the role of Krampus to punish the misbehaving children.

One of the characters that appears on these cards is “Lady Krampus”. She’s a less monstrous, but equally punitive, version of the folkloric demon, wielding her birch branches to punish wicked men whom she captures in her basket. Magnet is an original, hand-drawn illustration with the vintage look that is characteristic of my brand. Size of magnetic doll: 9.5″ H x 5″ W. This magnetic doll will adhere readily to your fridge, dishwasher, filing cabinet or any metallic surface suitable for magnets. Magnets have a good, strong hold.
