Name Skeletons

If you turn Bernie (the girls call all skeletons Bernie) clockwise you can see Emily's name! Where did I get the idea? Pinterest of course! There isn't really step by step instructions so I photographed some of the steps while I made the girls. Also, since Emily can't do cursive and Ava draws scribbles for her name, I had to write them. I cut the names out, while Emily did almost everything else. Ava did draw her Skeletons head:)

On white card stock I wrote the girls names in cursive. You shouldn't make them very big or you'll not be able to fit legs, head or arms in. Ava's is about 3.5" long and 1.25" tall when folded. Emily's is about 4.5" long and 2.5" tall when folded. I used a yellow calligraphy pen so you won't see it on the other side and it gives you nice thick lines. Just remember not to cut the folds:)

I had to show Emily how to draw bones and after showing her once, she was able to draw all the bones for Ava's (she did hers without me helping so her bones are not defined still cute though!).

I love them and I'll keep them forever and ever:) I was thinking smaller ones would be cute for Halloween cards.
