I was delighted to find these little paper globes while walking the aisles of Paperworld in Frankfurt. When I found out that they were actually cards, I nearly jumped for joy!
ZIMIglobes are cards that turn into gifts; you write your greeting on the back and mail it (a vellum envelope is included). Your recipient reads your greeting, colors in the Dia de los Muertos design with her/his choice of markers, pencils, or crayons, then pulls the wire to create a three-dimensional ornament. The ornament is easily turned back into a flat card by pulling the wire again. Pretty nifty!

Card size 4" x 8". Designed in Austria and printed in Europe.
