Paper animals: how does it work?

18/07/2018 Geplaatst in: Papercraft kits

Paper animals are the perfect eye catcher for your interior! It is the ideal animal friendly alternative for the classic animal trophies brought home after a hunt.

But it is not only an unique wall decoration, it is also a special project because you have to assemble the paper animal yourself. This makes it a mindful experience with a result you can be really proud of. The paper animal head goes from a 2D paper sheet to an awesome 3D model. Each paper animal trophy comes in different colours and is made of high quality paper.

How to make paper animals

  1. You start by cutting out the different pieces of your paper animal. Save the paper leftovers to cover up any accidents, such as glue stains, dents or gaps.
  2. After cutting out the pieces, you fold them. Use the folding lath or the back of a kitchen knife to make sharp folds.
  3. Use the numbers to sort all pieces before you start building your paper animal.
  4. The small numbers around the edges of each piece represent the gluing numbers. You will find each number twice on your paper trophy. Find the numbers and glue the pieces on top of the associated flaps.
  5. While you’re gluing and holding the tabs, it’s advised to use the table as much as possible.

Enjoy making your 3D puzzle project! 🙂
