No, I didn't (unfortunately). These toys are examples of Croatian traditional wooden toys that are still handmaded, and currently there is an exhibition of those toys in Zagreb.

I am not sure if this is the right place, but I would like to share with you photos of these beautiful wooden toys of Croatia - tradition that dates back in the 19th century: crafters were very active even 200 years ago. The method of their production was passed on from generation to generation in some families and has been kept to this day. The peculiarity is that they are handmade by men and mostly painted by women. In the year 2009 UNESCO  declared them as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. If you are near Zagreb, visit Etnographic museum and the exhibition: World of toys where you can see more of them.

48  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Valentine sugar card on: February 06, 2013 06:30:59 AM
I love cards, and although in my country it is not custom to give cards on Valentine's day, I made some. This one I particularly like, it is easy to make:



Material is basic: paper, white glue, brown sugar, ribbon, candies, foil (or cardboard) for stencil, scissors



Make stencil - draw hart on foil and cut it. Cut the card from cardboard.




Put the stencil on the card where you want it, glue the shape with white glue, a little bit thicker.



Leave it a minute to dry and sprinkle with brown sugar.




Leave it about ten minutes to dry, carefuly remove the stencil and slowly shake off the excess.
If necessary, to better fix the sugar you can gently spray the sugar shape with glue spray (if you have it) or hair spray - try aside on a test stencil first.



Design  a ribbon shape with your text - I made it using Microsoft Word (Insert tab -> Shapes) and just printed  it on the plain paper.
Print ribbon shape, cut it and glue it on the card. Round the card corners if you like.

Punch two holes and slip the ribbon, tie candies. Card is ready!
