First, select the size from a small enough to fit in your pocket and from a large enough so you have two pieces for each hand or you can make a large one to hold the whole family on one side and small ones to be used on the other side.
The next step is to cut the puppet down the middle. There are several factors to keep in mind. I have not had perfect results, I would suggest trying some on and see if it feels different without your hands touching.
The size should be just big enough so there is room for you to hold the puppet without it being so low your toes will be touching the ground.
The size should be long enough so your hands won’t hit the ground unless you pull them up to a high spot while doing so. The length should be appropriate. If your hands are getting close to your thighs and your belly button is hitting the ground, it might be a good idea to cut it in half and put it aside.
Puppets should be free floating. They often have to be tied to their owner so you don’t have to put them down in the grass.
Next cut the middle back into sections. Make sure the pieces that are in contact, touch and come together are at least the same height.
The next step is to make the legs. Cut in sections the same length as the size of your puppet as though you are cutting the edges of a book, but make sure the ends meet at the bottom.
Possible uses for the legs include making some nice hands and having them swing for extra leverage on stairs or the back seat of a car.
Here is my latest trick using these two pages as extra padding on a baby blanket.
I find I never have any trouble slipping off the blanket as long as I don’t have any problem getting to the back of it, plus it is nice as they are sitting on their back.
In my book The Tiny Puppymaker’s Book Of Tiny Puppies! The Little Puppy Book and The Tiny Puppies Book by Susan Heydt – I have created a new little game using paper flowers. These can be placed anywhere you choose!
What about those puppy books that have grown up since you made them. Are those still good?
They just do not stack up to the originals. They should be kept away from children as little girls tend to like all the stuff and love to pick on the bad ones.
