Step 1: Safety First.
To make this scratcher a cutting implement is require and cardboard can give a nasty paper cut so be aware and keep yourself safe.
Step 2: Choose a Shape.
I used the cardboard box to set the length and height I needed and drew a freehand curve and cut it out.
Step 3: Marking Out.
From my template I marked out the rest of my cardboard sheets. I chose to use two shapes rather than a single shape so my cats have a choice.
Step 4: Cutting Time.
Once marked out get cutting I used a bread knife as it can saw through the cardboard.
Step 5: Fill It Up.
I then stacked the shaped cardboard in from each side and used some more parts of the packaging to hold it all tight and separate the two forms.
Step 6: Finished.
Just left for the cats to enjoy I left the shapes fairly rough as it is meant to be scratched at.
