You sharpen and it will hold the trimmings!
Step 1: Ingredients
Card stock (one shade of yellow for the body, yellow orange for the arms and legs, red for the ears)
Some sort of stand somewhere
Step 2: Cutting Out the Body
First, the body is made in three parts to begin with. The front, back, and sides the grid and back are simple, the side can be however thick, I made mine 1 inch thick. In order to find the length cut some rope and wrap it around your body, mine measured out to 6.5 inches long.
Be sure to cut out lips in the rectangle so there is a place to glue.
Step 3: Making the Head
Be sure to cut out lips, 4 - one on each side. The lips on the outside will help to create a scaffolding type deal.
Cut out the eyes by using paper and outline the eyes with sharpie (just like it looks in the drawing.
The ears are made very similarly to the body, just cut out the basic shapes and add some layers for 3d, I think the pictures will do a better job of explaining.
Stick some pins in the ears for the antennae
Step 4: Arms and Legs
Arms- cut at a steep angle to form a good place for glueing- I think most of this is pretty subjective, so you may come up with a better way
To get started,'I would just start glueing and see where you can go from there.
The wheels are a little more tricky, for the grey- cut out the circles and then glue it to a black piece, then glue that into the legs.
For support, add some pops circle sticks to the back.
Then glue this onto another platform, like a piece of cardboard or a stand of some sort
Step 5: The Insides (part 1)
Step 6: The Insides (part 2)
Step 7: The Bottom
The bottom is just three cuts right under the area where the shavings would go.
The latch is just one paper being held up by another. The pictures will explain better :)
