The gnomes pictured below on the left, in front of the template were created by elementary aged kids.
The gnome on the right was made by a preschooler.
The gnomes in these photographs were made using the full size 8 1/2 x 11" paper.
If you want to make smaller gnomes just select two images to a page when you print.
