Paper Claws

Introduction: Paper Claws

Using just paper to make works of art has been a tradition in some societies for centuries. In this step by step walk though, you will learn how to make a claw out of paper. CAUTION: Claws may be sharp. Take care not to scratch or poke yourself or others. Use at your own risk.

Step 1: Find Some Paper

Take a piece of normal printer paper. Notebook paper works just as well. Note: Make sure that the paper is unmarked and unfolded or the claw will be flimsy and won't work as well.

Step 2: Fold the Paper

Take the top right corner of the sheet and fold it down so the top edge is lined up with the left edge.

Step 3: Fold Again

Take the top left corner (this should be the only top corner) and fold it down to the other side.

Step 4: Fold the Bottom Corners

Take the two bottom corners and fold them over so that the outside edges line up with the last fold.

Step 5: Fold the Bottom Portion of the Paper Up Onto the Top

Take the bottom portion of the paper and fold it back onto the top.

Step 6: Fold the Right Side Over

Take the right corner and fold it across so that the edge lines up with the center of the folded sheet

Step 7: Fold Again

Take the previous fold and fold again on it self almost as if you were rolling it across

Step 8: Repeat Previous Step

Fold the claw over one last time.

Step 9: Tuck in the Back Point

This step is tricky. Take the bottom point and tuck it into the fold that was made by the previous creases.

Step 10: Put on Claw

Congrats. You did it! You now have a paper claw. Make five or even ten of them to cover both hands. CAUTION: Claws may be sharp. Take care not to scratch or poke yourself or others. Use at your own risk.
