elf with a jet-pack (His name is Christopher. Named by Helen)I'd done something similar in college where I had to create a frog box, but this was even more fun. Most people just used nets they found online then wiped and resigned them, but I made my own net from scratch to my exact measurements and such! That meant testing and adjusting which can be tedious, but it's all part of the process I think and still very fun...even when you get it a little wrong. And, at the risk of sounding cocky, I'm fairly good at judging/measuring so I never really have to make major adjustments anyway (hehe).
More shots of the little guy:I've added a string to the back so he can be hung up on the tree and he can fly about with his shiny Christmas-Green jet-pack! I'm probably going to send one or two net sheets home to my brother for him to make and a few friends will probably receive one as a little surprise too! hehe (depends how many I can afford to get printed...).
Egmont will be choosing two people to take up summer placements and those people's designs (and presumably any others that Egmont like) will be included in Egmont's Christmas activity book. Very good opportunity that simply had to be taken advantage of! Incredibly stiff competition, though. Can't honestly say I'm that optimistic about poor little Christopher Elf's chances, but we can dream... And I'm very pleased with/proud of Christopher in any case.
