This is another drawing for "The Nutcracker" that I think would be suitable for cut-outs.

The first image shows a scan of the original drawing at 60% of the original size. I had to shrink it to get it to fit onto A4 within the 16:9 frame. The following images show parts of the drawing at the original size, multiple times for making cut-outs.

In theory, it should be possible to make composite images using rotation and shifting with MetaPost and exteps and/or TeX and dvips, but this didn't work well. I finally did it in GIMP, which worked great.

I may add a handle to the coffee cup, because without it, it looks like a teacup, while the pot looks like a coffee pot. On the other hand, it could just draw a teapot and use the two figures for different sections of the ballet.
