The Papercut Monsters Are Creative Beasts Worthy of a Snuggle

The Papercut Monsters are a new and engaging way to play with a plush toy. Created by the Edmonton-based artist Joel Kadziolka, the monsters are anything but typical. Starting off as engaging paper collages with bold visual illustrations handmade by Kadziolka, the prints are scanned onto linen-cotton canvas using eco-friendly inks. After being stuffed, the colorful fabrics become quirky, cuddly friends.

As Kadziolka's website describes, "a love of collage and playfulness come together to create new companions for the young and young-at-heart." It is also worth mentioning that these beasties are machine washable, for monsters are known to get into a variety of messy situations. These designer plush toys aren't only great conversation starters but they also adorably help to channel the creative beast in all of us.

The Papercut Monsters are available on Etsy in a variety of sizes and designs, all of which would make a perfect companion or gift.
