Meet Mr Nutcracker – a downloadable paper DIY

 

The holiday season is fast approaching and, as every year, the spotlight is on snowmen, Santa Claus and reindeers. But what about the other dudes? The three kings, the drummer boy, the nutcracker? I personally think the nutcracker is pretty ace, so on that note I decided to create a DIY nutcracker paper doll.

Well, hello there. Meet Mr. Nutcracker, he is a DIY paper doll and he loves hanging out outdoors or, alternatively, indoors, on Christmas trees  ideally, next to miniature candy canes. He is also pretty relaxed about just chilling anywhere around the house during other times of the year.

Yesterday, we spent the morning outside taking advantage of the sunny weather. This is Mr. Nutcracker’s sunny winter photoshoot.

You can have a Mr. Nutcracker of your own. You can download his lovely body parts here. I recommend printing them in the thickest paper you can, I drew mine in sketch paper which proved to be too flimsy and was quite hard to get Mr N to stand up straight. For his joints I used mini brads, which if you are in the UK they are quite hard to find. I finally found them in Hobbycraft, otherwise you can find them online.

If you print him about half its size and manage to cut them out and put them together you could have pretty much the coolest Christmas tree decoration in the making, ever. Happy crafting!
