Source: What Shall We Do Now?: Five Hundred Games And Pastimes

A pair of compasses is a good thing to have; but you can make a
perfectly serviceable tool by cutting out a narrow strip of cardboard
about four inches long and boring holes at intervals, of a quarter of
an inch, through which the point of a pencil can be placed. If one end
of the strip is fastened to the paper with a pin you can draw a circle
of what size you want, up to eight inches across.


These are the materials needed when making paper furniture:--

A few sheets of stiff note-paper or drawing-paper. Scissors.
A penknife. A ruler (a flat one). A mapping-pen. A box of
paints. A board to cut out on. Adhesive tape or stamp-paper.
