Scraps And Transfers

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

Paper boxes, when finished, can be made more attractive by painting on
them, gluing scraps to them, putting transfers here and there, or
covering them with spatter-work (see p. 275). Scraps can be bought at

off by moistening in water, pressing on the paper with the slithery
clouded surface downward, and being gently slipped along, used to be
more common than they now are.

Directions how to make many other paper things will be found on pp.
