Wizard of Oz - Tin Man

JenW of the Cricut message board has a daughter with Down Syndrome. They are part of a new theater group, Angels on Stage, and their first play is Wizard of Oz. As a fundraiser, the kids are making angels. Jen wanted to make the characters of the play into angels and put out a plea for help with her project.

What better way than to use our Cricut Design Studio and the Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridge. Jen asked each person willing to help to design one character as a 5 inch paper doll. By the time I read the post, everything was spoken for except the Tin Man. I went to work on him, and here he is. I'll post another picture when I cut him out and get him assembled. I wanted to get the cut file to those who have been asking for it.

We're sending the cut files to Jen. She will cut the pieces and the kids will put them together. Won't they have fun! I'm sure they'll have a very successful event.

That was so sweet of you! He looks GREAT! Any advice on how to create an oversize Tin Man using the Cricut machine??? I am wanting to make a "Pin the Heart" game for my daughter's Wizard of Oz party coming up extremely soon. I don't really have a lot of experience using my Cricut due to lack of time. I would love any pointers or help with this project.
Thanks a bunch,
