Directions to make Christmas Elf Puppets:
1. Choose then print the elf template(s) you want to create on a heavy paper-weight stock (the heavier the weight, the better) or card stock.

All stock will work but a heavier weight will be sturdier.

2. If you chose the black & white version, color it in now. You can try to match the colors of the elves or use any colors you like! Be creative and have fun.

You can also choose to have the template(s) laminated to treasure as a keepsake for generations. If you decide to do that, now is the time. Be sure to use a laminator that fully seals the paper or card stock.

3. Cut out the template. Take your time, there's no rush.

(Fair warning, some of these templates have some tricky curves that need to be navigated, so be ready, grownups, to lend a helping hand with the scissors.)

4. Punch holes in each marked area. The arms and legs will have one hole each, the body will have four.

5. Connect the puppet parts by inserting the metal brads into the holes and folding the brad tabs on the back.
