Yes, I remember making little things out of pine cones, acorn, leaves, and matchsticks. Cute! I bet these would sell really well at hipster art fairs these days

Thanks for the rush of nostalgia!
I remember getting issues of "Miś" ("teddy bear") as a kid...little monthly magazines for kids that were full of these great craft projects. I wonder if they used the same illustrations as the ones you posted above, because they looked very much the same!
If only I could find those magazines now. I'm pretty sure my parents threw them out :( ...and a quick search on ebay was fruitless.

I am not sure where illustrations come from. i found them on random Russian blogs and google search but they do look like they are from one magazine/book.
