I had a large cardboard box lying around that I really wanted to make something out of, and I happened across this website: http://www.cardboardsafari.com/
Inspired by their products, I decided to design and create my own cardboard animal bust. It was a pretty fun process with a satisfying result, so I thought I'd share my experience. Here's what you'll need:
*Cardboard - lots of it, preferably the same thickness
*Box cutter or good knife
*Glue (optional - a wire coathanger could work too)
Step 1: Imagine Your Design
I decided to make a giraffe because their horns and head shape are iconic and would hopefully be recognizable even if I messed up a bit. In order to create the bust, you'll need to have a good concept of the 3-d shape of the animal head. I just looked at lots of pictures of giraffes from different angles, until I felt that I had a good idea of what they were shaped like.
