Well I was bored one weekend and I had nothing to do so I was going to make a mini Strandbeest out of cardboard to hold a cup or other objects.
This is fairly easy but don't use corrugated cardboard if you are making it small because it will bend over time and break.
Step 1: What you need
* Pen or pencil
* Paperclips (3 to 4 big paperclips)
* About 1 hour of time not including glue drying
Don't use corrugated cardboard
Step 2: Making the legs
Then don't cut the template but cut a piece of card-stock or paper cup a little bit bigger than what the templated shape is and then cut it to shape more detailing than before
An then poke holes in the shape with pins how the template shows it
lining up with the template.
Glue two pieces side by side to make the card-stock(Four for a cup) stronger and glue a small strip of paper or rubberband on the leg part where it shows on the picture to help it grip the surface.
Make four of each shape.
Step 3: Putting together the legs
Put it together like how the picture shows
Step 4: Make the paperclip axle
Then bend it as shown in the picture
Here is the picture with the 4 legs as 180 angle
