Question 2 years ago

Hi Diego - So classy! My daughter loves foxes and she has 2 children, so I'm making a fox family: 2 regular size and 1 that's printed at 125%. I'm ready to begin gluing but I want to know if it's best to begin with number 1 and proceed through the highest number - or just randomly start with the smallest pieces? Thanks.

A fox family? Cool! Well, my advice is to start by assembling parts from tight areas such as the nose, for example. It must be hard to reach some areas due the size of our hands so it is better to go from the nose, going through the cheeks ending up with the ears ;)

My daughter moved into a new office today and she hung the fox family just inside her door! I enjoyed the process of making these (started with the nose) and they came out great, though it did take patience! I enlarged the pattern in order to print the momma fox. I used scrapbooking card stock because the colors are endless and they don't bend with all of the manipulation. Thanks!!

I don’t understand. I clicked on materials needed. I bought them. But I cannot see instructions, like
Measure white sheet
Cut here, 23 mm, 10 mm, 2, 3, 4 now cut
Fold sling dotted lines
Write the number 23, match it to all the other numbers you have written (see above). Also add a pen to Materials list if a step says to match up numbers you have written.
Thank you for reading. I guess I thought I would find actual directions on the PDF.
Sincerely,
Shawn

Hi Shawn, I found a video explaining the assembly steps very clearly and easy to understand. You just need to apply that techniques on the paper fox.

Really, really nice instructable. Adorable fox. I thought practice first with plain paper before I tried the colored card stock.

Question 2 years ago on Introduction

Is there a best practice in the order you glue all together? Which parts to glue first?

I suggest you to start gluing small parts such as the nose so that you have enought space to manipulate with your hands.

I just thought it would be funny/interesting for some die-hard gamers to have a wall full of this type of "taxidermy" trophy heads for all their "game" kills.

This looks awesome. Did you design the animal yourself? I'd love to do a cat version!
