The House of the Orange Monkey sometimes gets emails from monkey lovers who want to know where they can get a beanie monkey like Mr Monkey of their own. Mr Monkey can't help with that, but he can now provide a lifesize picture of himself to cut out and keep.
Right click on the link below and select Save Target to save the faux monkey to your computer, or follow the link and print the page out.
Print out the picture. The printed out image should measure 126mm across between the black corner markers.
Faux monkey graphic.
Glue the picture onto cardboard.
Make sure you choose card that isn't too thick to cut easily.
Wait until the glue is dry, and the printed monkey is properly attached to the card.
Find the person in the house who is best with scissors, and persuade them to carefully cut away all the bits of card that don't resemble a monkey.
Admire your new faux monkey, and start planning what you're going to do with it.
Your faux monkey can help around the house, doing simple tasks such as marking your place in a book, or adding some simian decoration to a desktop or cork board (careful where you put the pins). The faux monkey can become a stylish fridge magnet, if you've got a magnet to glue onto its back.
Another mildly amusing thing to do is to position the faux monkey in front of something interesting - a noted local landmark, perhaps, or your back garden - take a picture of it, and send the picture(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
