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.

Notes to keep in mind:

Make sure you are having fun. That is what paper craft is all about?
-Take your time.
-Have extra craft knife blades handy. It is always best to cut with a sharp blade.
-Cut rounded parts with scissors and straight parts with craft knife.
-When scoring be careful not to score to deep and cut all the way through the model.
-Using the left over excess pieces of paper add a little glue to a piece of paper and use another piece to spread the glue.
-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 would not want to spend all the time putting together a toy, then spray it and have the ink smear. If your printer ink does not run, spray it with 1 coat before cutting out and 1 coat after you have put it together.
