 Change to Website Coming End of November 

Paper Minis has been on-line since around the crossover of 2002-2003, that means I've been churning out paper fun and selling for an astounding 14 years--thank you one and all--that is close to a fourth of my life!! In all those years prices have pretty much remained the same. Come the end of November, 2017 I need to raise prices ever so slightly. Bottom line, this unusual "heads-up" is being made for you on the off chance you have been admiring something. If you want to save a few pennies, now is the time to buy!
 
 Announcing the Second Half of
 Vintage Toys to Complete the Shop
 
During my "career" in miniatures there were several challenges I wanted to conquer. For example: the Peddler's Wares, which I completed about 7 years ago and, a Vintage/antique style toy shop. So far I have the first 12 kits for the shop in the Vintage Toy Shop Subscription, Part 1 (lock in that old price).

Today I am announcing the second half in a new 12-kit Vintage Toy Shop Subscription, Part 2. In Part 2 I'm filling up the shelves. As you see Month 1 and Month 2 gives you a total of 16 board game boxes. Undoubtably these will look very impressive on a shop shelf. As with most of my series, I design as we go along. My track record is pretty good and I promise I will deliver the best!

Also in the mix and coming soon is a 11"x14" frame-able shop to stock every toy jewel. Watch this space!

Pre-printed Kit

White House China Display Box

bc1is026ab ~ United States White House China
Volumes 1 and 2
. Includes plates for display.
Designed and Compiled by Ann Lenore Vanture

Size:
25mmhx32mmwx7mmd (each volume)

Description:
This is a project I have worked on for over a year! I'm sure it has a narrow appeal, nevertheless it was a labor of love and perfect for the student of American heritage. You will find a page for each U.S. President (Trump is not included since we are hardly into his term. He may announce a china pattern later). Both volumes include true bookbinder's bookcloth covers, and each has a laminated cover art panel, plus both fit into a laminated sleeve for storage. The artwork is as true as the sample photo. Over the years, so many, many customers write me after receiving an order telling me how surprised they are at the high quality print!

Also included in the kit are 16, .75" plates and 16, 1" plates for display. I've mounted a set in the photo.

The books include a history of White House china perfectly typeset and readable. I have included a one page pdf file here of that text for you to print.

As with all Paper Minis book kits a photo tutorial is included.

The following staging uses pre-printed kits h1is025 and h1is026. The staged picnic shows the wine label kit was used on wine bottles found on eBay at about $4 for 6 and free shipping. By the way, if they are pre-labeled with low-quality labels, just soak in water to remove. I was able to easily find slender French baguettes, 4 for about $6 with free shipping. I think they look great in the bags! Don't forget the listed tutorial for French bread on my Pinterest board.
 
My basket was found on eBay for a couple of dollars and about $2-$3 in shipping. I took out the pink fabric and replaced with my checkered fringed napkin. The fabric items I printed on cotton printer sheets, checkers were scanned and shrunk down to be the same scale as the cheese and wine before printing.
