ST. PIO OF PIETRELCINA: A stand-up figure
Make an easy stand-up figure of St. Pio of Pietrelcina!
Copy out the pattern, colour and cut out. Be sure to draw the stigmata on his hands.
TO MAKE A STAND FOR A STAND-UP FIGURE:
Cut a piece of cardboard (a cereal box will work fine) approximately 1.4” (3 cm) x 7” (19cm).
Draw a line 2” (5 cm) from the bottom edge of the cardboard strip.
Fold this edge and bend it back.
Glue or tape the back of the strip to the figure. The 2” section is not glued. It stands on the table and enables the figure to stand up.
NOTE: These measurements are flexible. Change them to suit the size and height of your figure. The stand in the photo is slightly different from the stand described.
