Dinosaur Shadow Puppets

Dinosaur Shadow Puppets

Made up some dinosaur shadow puppets for the R/1/2 class to play with as part of their puppet unit. The KNK Maxx cutter is quite amazing once you can stop it ripping the card up on the fiddly bits!

The dinosaurs are from Lettering Delights. they were simplified in Adobe Illustrator then cut out using ‘Make the Cut’ software. Make the Cut is workable but a touch frustrating after using Corel Draw or Illustrator; you really have to approach it with a different headset.

I’m still discovering new features though and since it can readily import ai files, it’s easy enough to do the tricky stuff in Illustrator first.

    These look fantastic! Would also be worth trying them using a stop-motion animation program – I’d be interested to see what the movies look like 🙂
