A Christmas Carol That I Created In 25 Cardboard Parts

Having always loved the story of A Christmas Carol, I thought I’d immortalise it in cardboard-cutout form.

So, armed with a scalpel, a couple of bicycle lights, and a pile of A4 card, I set about weeks of cutting and propping up. I think the results are rather good!

Whilst I had lots of fun doing this, it’s worth warning anyone who wants to try something similar… this is really hard on your fingers; expect to get a few blisters. Having said that, you must suffer for your art, and suffer you will. Merry Christmas!

More info: Facebook

1: Marley was dead: to begin with

2: Keep Christmas in your own way!

3: If they would rather die, they had better do it

4: Darkness is cheap, and Scrooge liked it

5: There’s more of gravy than of grave about you

6: Look to see me no more

7: Who, and what are you?

8: The school is not quite deserted

9: Bless his heart; it’s Fezziwig alive again!

10: Leave me! Take me back. Haunt me no longer!

11: Come in, and know me better, man

12: I see a vacant seat and a crutch without an owner

13: What place is this?

14: Who suffers by his ill whims? Himself, always

15: Beware them both, and all of their degree

16: I fear you more than any spectre I have seen

17: Old Scratch has got his own at last, hey

18: The case of this unhappy man might be my own

19: Don’t mind it, father. Don’t be grieved

20: No, Spirit! Oh no, no!

21: What’s today, my fine fellow?

22: I’ll send it to Bob Cratchit’s!

23: Why bless my soul!

24: A Merry Christmas, Bob!

25: God Bless Us, Every One!

I would love to see this as a video with you panning the shots and someone reading the story! I would pay to own that.

I love the idea of a video too, that would be amazing. Although it's already pretty stellar indeed! :)
