Day of the Dead Catrina Paper Craft
("La Calavera Catrina")

La Calavera Catrina (in English, 'The Elegant Skull') is zinc etching made by Mexican printmaker José Guadalupe Posada in 1910.  Catrina has become a part of the Day of the Dead celebrations and is used in costumes, figurines, posters and artwork.

This is a simple cut and paste paper craft version of Catrina.  You can glue the pieces together or use brass tacks to assemble it so the pieces move.
