Dinky Dragon Face Cut-out Stand-up

My friends Tony and Christine commissioned me to design and create a “Face Cut-out Stand-up” (or whatever it is called) for their son Cayden’s First Birthday Party, that occurred on Saturday. Since Cayden was born in the Year of the Dragon, they had a Dragon themed party and requested that the stand-up be based on the character of “Dinky Dragon“, which Cayden has a costume of. After figuring out the design and dimensions, I ended up hand painting the two dragon characters on a sturdy plastic board and assembled the stand-up with a few wood slats, glue, staples, nails, screws and hinges. It was a hit at the party and was fun watching both adults and kids stick their heads in the dragons’ mouths to snap a photo.
