Stand up characters

I use to make these stand up characters as game pieces using students pictures.  They always turned out cute.  We needed some characters for our newly made castle.
I cut out these out of her birthday wrapping paper then glued them to cardboard to make them sturdy.  Then cut them out again.  If you use a photograph, you don't need the cardboard.

Hot glue them to a paperclip that has been pulled apart in the shape of an L.  You might have to play with the paperclip to get it to stand up.  The princesses were kind of lop-sided, so it took a lot of playing with.

I even found a picture of my daughter riding a horse, then added a crown.
For storage, they can be folded flat and put in the castle box.
