“As an educator I enjoy introducing kids to science of engineering and I have hosted a number of maker workshops for groups of children. My material choices have gradually changed over the last few years and I have finally arrived at a place where I can make these paper pets readily available, from reusable and recyclable paper. This for me democratizes the art of making, allowing the potential for the greatest of reaches, in the paper crafting of pets.” -PaperPetShop
