If you are worried about how many guests are going to show up to your party, there is help at hand. I found this Festive Zebra which you can buy and use to fill the room up right from the start. Or even better, make your own DIY version following the papercut directions in the video above.

The Festive Zebra is a handmade paper cutout puppet on a golden rod created by Crankbunny, a Jersey City-based animator and paper puppet maker.

The most brilliant part of this invention is that you can pull a decorative string and the zebra takes a zip from a glass of martini. The zebra is even decked out in a suit jacket, bow tie and, of course, stripes. Oh so stylish!
