Is it too soon to mention HALLOWEEN?
A few days ago I noticed that one of my favourite blogs was up and running again (she takes a break for a few months after Halloween)....A NOSTALGIC HALLOWEEN.......and so I was browsing around some of the other blogs listed on there and came across this site........A SKULL A DAY.....what fun!!
On that site was the PDF file to download to make this card skull! I just had to have a go! It was a bit fiddly trying to work out just what went where but I got there in the end.
Then I decided to make another one and decorate it after the style of the traditional sugar skulls that are made in Mexico to celebrate The Day of the Dead.
This is the top, not the best pic but you get the idea!
This is from the side to show the lever thingy sticking out of a slot at the back, if you move it up and down the jaw moves up and down, how clever is that!! It is done with a very clever (and fiddly)folded arrangement inside the skull.
