Introduction: LoveBird CardBoard
In collaboration with Raspiaudio on their development of the LoveBird (instructables here), we designed a special case that you can made by your own from the plan or with the pre-cut cardboard that you can buy on our website.

Step 1: Remove the Cut Cardboard
Separate the different cardboard parts.
You can use a pen or a pencil to remove the little parts.
Step 2: Fold the Base Part
Step 3: Put the Electronic on the Base Part and Close It
Use your glue gun to fix the two electronic cards assembled at the bottom of the base part.
You need to position it carefully on the mark.
Then take the Motor and the usb cable through the back area.
You can finally take your glue gun again to close the base part with the electronic inside.
Step 4: Printed Personnlisation
If you want you can choose one of the graphics that you already download on our websites and print it on white paper. You can also take the empty one and make the composition you want (family picture, loved one picture, children heroes, ...) then print it.
Then Cut the different parts carefully.
And now you can stick each part on the associated cardboard one.
You can also skip this step 4 and draw directly on the white cardboard.
Step 5: Motor Assembly
Take you Glue Gun again.
Stick the motor in the corresponding hole in the background part
Assemble the motor wheel on it then stick it with the wheel cardboard part.
Step 6: Final Assembly
Fold the back part and put it into the base part.
Then stick the background part to the back part.
Everything done !! Congrats !!
You can start enjoying your love bird and don't hesitate to share the picture of your creation.
