Skeleton papercraft project

I printed out and assembled this little skeleton-zombie guy just for kicks. At 2 1/2" tall, he's a very threatening presence. I believe he might enjoy hiding in the medicine cabinet or the cereal cupboard. To make him (he's part of the "Halloween Night" set), and other Halloween papercrafts, visit Canon's Halloween printables site.

Update for those having trouble finding the template: Click here. Scroll down to "Halloween Decoration" and find "Halloween Night." This printable document contains many characters (cat, pumpkin, etc.) and a house you can build. The skeleton is on one of the pages. Click A4 or Letter, depending on what your country's standard paper size is, to download the PDF. When the template is downloaded, print page 3, the instructions, and page 8, the skeleton body parts.

Cute! Er, I mean, scary! Did you use a very thick paper for that?

Jess said...

Yes, terrifying. I used some light-weight cardstock.

Amanda said...

Oh my goodness, that's so cute! I'm going to make one!

Andrea said...

He's cute.
Blessings, andrea

Now he would be darling in a little sack lunch, no?

Grandma G said...

Courtney says, "I don't like him!"

Jess said...

Really? She said that?

Grandma G said...

She certainly did! She has some very definite dislikes! She particularly doesn't like Willow's half-eaten ferret toys. Or snakes. Or skeletons... Grace had to take down her decorative skeletons outside yesterday, or Courtney wouldn't go out. :-)

I think he's cute and terrifying and I don't blame the little one for not liking skeletons.... When I was her age (and still at my age), I hated going into the department stores if the scary hallowe'en masks were out and avoided tv - JUST IN CASE! :-)

Could be an interesting accessory to halloween decoration. Have several standing in different places.

Tracy said...

Did they take him off the Canon site, I don't see him :(

Jess said...

He's a character in the "Halloween Night" set. You'll see it on Canon's page. Choose A4 or letter, depending on what your country's standard paper size is, and download the PDF. You'll see him on a page in the PDF. You can print just that page and the instruction page.

I REALLY want my kids to make these for their teachers' desks, but can't find the project on the site you listed. Do you have a direct link? Or the project YOU can post?

THANKS for all the inspiration all the time.

Jess said...

April, see my comment above, and I also just updated the post.

Becky said...

I love him!! Thanks!

Amanda said...

Have you seen the Nanibirds? http://www.nanibird.com/. Paper cutout birds and other creatures. I've made a couple, so cute!

Jess said...

Amanda, I have. I love that they're all different and fun. I see more designs have been added since I last saw them. Hmm, I feel a blog post coming on.

Christina @ Pardon my Vintage said...

Bummer, I can't find it either, even with the direct link! Only found these under Halloween Decoration:

Jack-O'-Lantern
Jack-o'-lantern Family
Halloween Night
Halloween Tree
Witch's Hat and Broom
Happy Halloween
Halloween Flag
Pumpkin

Oh well. Maybe they'll update it again later.

RedThreadDIY said...

Grr! I can't find it either. Do you have the PDF file saved by chance to post on here? :)

Jess said...

Christina, right you are. It's on a page in the "Halloween Night" project. Look closely at the photo. See him sitting there next to the pumpkin guy? Download that Halloween Night PDF. Print the pages I refer to in my blog post.

Erin @ SYL: Slipcover Your Life said...

ABSOLUTELY LOVE this little guy! Really want to make one ASAP (I'm such a kid at heart...)
