Super Badge It! Machine...

Email to Bandai, makers of Super Badge It! Machine.

Dear Bandai,

Thank you for your extensive instructions for the Super Badge It! Machine. I am glad you included a section called "Caution: Please read before playing with toy." I actually read it first, as I guessed it would be useful from the outset. To remind you, it says,

"Do not 1)aim toy at anyone, 2)hit anyone with toy, 3)poke anyone with toy, 4)swing toy at anyone. Be careful not to pinch fingers with hinged part of toy. 5) Do no stand on toy, as it may result in serious injury!"

Thank god you advised me before I got started.


Just the one piece of info I would deem more useful would be -

Super Badge it Machine only works on paper less that 80 gsm! 

- this could have saved me from two hours of my life filled with utter frustration.

Perhaps you could include this on any future instructions you issue with a revamp of the machine?

Thank you very much,

Tired and Vexed Badger.

Spiral paper roses

Photo of some I made last week to show my friend Su! Easy to make but I'd avoid using vellum to start with, normal paper is much easier. Several demos online don't use a Quilling tool but I've no idea why, it makes it much easier.


My first time... Not sure I like the result, but I think its alright for bugs, birds and fish embellishments. Can't decide whether to add a wobbly eye....
