This page has all the PDFs needed to print and paper-craft your own wildly blasphemous Cthulhu Mythos Nativity Scene. Don't tell my grandmother, please.
So, how does this work? Well, print out at least one sheet, on nice heavy paper or card-stock, of each of your evil PDFs.
Cut out each figure roughly, along with the empty black square at the bottom. Do not cut the area at the top of each figure!
Just cut loosely around each mirrored figure, like so:
NOT like so:
Now, fold the figure in half, so the top is the middle and the "feet" line up neatly.
Clean up the edges of each figure as much as you wish. Careful with sharp things! Remember, this can be as complicated or as loose as you wish.
When that's done, you might have something like this:
Some of the figures have little black lines on the feet. I like to snip these so that the feet overlap, but that's optional. The one-step way is just to fold the feet flat together and glue them.
If you wish, you can glue a coin to the base of each figure, which makes them bottom heavy and super stable, but they should stand just fine without.
All that remains is to house this daemonic menagerie. The barn is a PDF all by itself. Hay, rough wood, and a place of terrible secrets.
Cut neatly along the short black lines. Then fold along the dotted lines. I like to fold against a metal ruler to keep the lines clean and crisp. You'll need to fold the four corners of the back wall forward. Have a look at this partially constructed barn:
See how the walls, ceiling, and floor are tilted toward one another? How the white bits of the roof hide behind the side walls? How the white bits on the floor fold, so that one part stays flat on the floor, and the other grips the side wall?
If it gets frustrating, set it aside for a bit, or ask a child between ten and fourteen for help.
A couple of drops of glue will hold your barn together, and the arcane rituals can begin!
Write me if you get stuck. Really.
Here are the PDFs! Tell me what you think of it. Happy Yule!
