My first papercraft in a long time. Sorry you papercraft fans have had to wait so long! I’ll add several more before the Christmas.
This is a recreation of the Howard Johnson’s fudge bar from the 1950s. I don’t have a lot of information about either the candy or the dimensions of the wrapper, so I’m kind of leaving it to you to decide what to do with it.
My idea was to print it, wrap a piece of my own fudge in it and give it away as a stocking stuffer. Think of this as mini wrapping paper, for the retro candy lover.
If you print this page without shrinking or enlarging it, the wrapper will come out 7 by 5.2 inches. To completely cover a piece of chocolate, I would cut the candy to about 4 by 2 inches, keeping in mind that the thickness of the candy will also reduce coverage. If your candy is too thick, I’d cut it even smaller. Of course, you can always scale up the image and print it larger than what I’ve got here.
Have fun!

Toyshop Theater – Universal Studios Florida 1989 Press Kit

We didn’t really go to Universal Studios when I was a kid. We were most definitely a Disney World family, and frankly I’m okay with that. That said, I love themeparks, and now that I’m an adult, I’m just as intrigued by the design and history of Universal as any other park.
About 6 months to a year ago, I stumbled across this interesting little find at an estate sale. What appeared to be a media kit for the opening of Universal Studios in Orlando. I bought it for 8 bucks (a steal, I think) and promptly forgot about it. Today, after finding it in a closet, I thought I’d share my first reaction of opening it up. Here’s the film.
