Scissor Craft Membership Required

 

For $1 per month, members have access to the sum total of my life's work.

Scissorcraft contains thousands of images, personally illustrated. Scissorcraft color book and craft images may be used as teacher's aid for classroom overhead display or personal enjoyment at home with family and friends.

 

Large images appear only after paid membership is established through PayPal.

To all members who honor me by finding value in my work through paid membership, I thank you so very much for helping me regain my creative insanity by allowing me to purge advertising and SEO nightmares from these pages.  

 

I constantly revisit these images to update and refresh or replace the old and funky.  

A while back I realized that I was spinning wheels and running like a hamster to appease the unappeasable demands of advertisers and had almost forgotten the reason behind creating these sites.  Scissorcraft is my tiny space in virtual-land where I play to satiate an insatiable desire to illustrate for no apparent reason.    

 

Bonus: to my knowledge none of my images have ever spontaneously exploded and are not banned on airplanes.

Hawaiian and Polynesian Style

tiki pumpkinTikis are generally large wood and stone carvings that resemble people. In Hawaiian history, the first (tiki) man was Kumuhonua. He was created by Tane from mixing red earth with saliva. The first woman was from one of his ribs. The purpose of the carvings can vary but often they serve as markers to boundaries of sacred sites or property and other significant sites. The word "tiki" originated with the New Zealand maori but is known in many other cultures with slight variations. In Tahiti the word is known as the "ti'i" and in Hawaii it's "ki'i".

Tropical Tikis

 

These tiki printables can be used to make cool paper maché masks, table setting place mats, coasters, wall hangings and ornaments. Trace designs onto Shrink Art paper to make pins, necklaces and brooches for the kids to wear. Print and trace the designs onto multi-color fun craft foam sheets to create colorful soft face masks. Save the left over trimmings to paste interesting and unique designs and shapes onto the finished product.

Printable tropical island theme totem symbols images are adapted from existing, historical photos of Hawaiian Island and Polynesian tiki statues and faces.

Fill your Halloween spook house with battery-lit Easter Island jack o lantern pumpkins, tiki skull skeletons, ghostly totems, and wicked snarling faced monster statues.

Print the Halloween pumpkin totem symbols carving stencil patterns and trace the design into the flesh of your pumpkin or gourd with a poker or the point of a toothpick or pencil.
