Draw an outline of a shotgun stock onto 2 different pieces of cardboard. Cut it out with Scissors/X-Acto knife and place next to each other. Add strips of cardboard onto it to layer it up like the first picture.


Once that is down stick the second piece of cardboard on top so it looks like the second pic.
