This paper toy was really fun to make. It is a child like version of
Count Orlok from the 1922 film Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror. It was
really tough to make the repugnant rodent like vampire into a cute
version but still maintain its characteristics. I call him Lil Nos. He
sounds more like a rapper than a vampire. This paper toy is really
easy to make. The most difficult part is cutting out the hands. Other
than that the body is merely a cone shape with the tip cut off and the
head is a 6 sided box. He works very well as a Halloween decoration or
just hanging out on your desk.

-When scoring be careful not to score to deep and cut all the way

-Using the left over excess pieces of paper add a little glue to a

-Use a stick for gluing hard to reach areas. I normally hold pieces
together for 10-15 seconds.
-Tip: I spray my Paper Toys with Deft Clear Wood Finish Spray. It is a
clear lacquer spray. Please test it on a scrap printout first. You

spray it with 1 coat before cutting out and 1 coat after you have put
