Santa Claus Matryoshka Doll template



Lineart version
Pictures (of the prototype) here and here

This Christmas Nesting Doll was originally made as a papercraft template unofficially accompagning a really sweet picture book called "Tausend Millionen Weihnachtsmänner"/"Miljoona biljoona joulupukkia" by Hiroko Motai and Marika Maijala. I made a few nesting dolls with some kids and it was fun.

Since I had no other way to do it, I made everything from scratch in GIMP. There was... quite a lot of math involved to get everything exactly right. I'm kind of proud of the end result. I should use math more often. Results are always so pretty.

Great idea! And I suppose it would work to make more than 3 dolls if you scaled the size of the image down?
