In this Instructable, I will show you how to make Wolverine claws out of paper.
This is my official entry for the Papercraft 2017 Contest.
Step 1: What You Will Need
For this project, you will need:-
1. 7 A-4 sized sheets of paper.
2. 6 toothpicks
3. some tape
4. super glue
6. Silver Paint(optional)
If you go through the images, the steps are there. You can follow the images for each step.
Step 2: Lets Begin.
I will walk you through to make one claw, you will need to do the remaining five the same way.
Take one A-4 sized sheet and fold it into half breadth-wise.
Then, unfold the sheet.
Fold each half into half again. Unfold. You should have 3 creases on your A-4 sheet.
Step 3: Almost There
Now, Fold the outermost crease into half again, and keep folding till it reaches the middle fold on both sides.
Fold the corners. Fold the corners again. Unfold the corners all the way. You should have 3 creases on the corners on both sides. Use the scissors to cut off from the second crease.
Fold the center crease again. Use tape to stick the pointy end like in the image.
Voila. You have successfully made one claw. Repeat the same with 5 more A-4 sheets.
Step 4: Making the Template to Hold the Claws
Once you have made all 6 claws, you should have 1 A-4 sheet left.
Fold the A-4 sheet in such a way that it divides into 4 equal parts.
Use the scissors to cut each part out...
Take 1 part and roll it into a cylinder with diameter of approximately your middle finger.
Roll it length wise.
Repeat with other part.
Place 3 toothpicks and two rolled cylinders like in the image.
Use tape to fix it that way.
Slide 3 claws onto the three toothpicks.
Fix the toothpick to the claw using superglue.
Your claw set for one hand is ready.
Repeat the same for other quadrants of paper, toothpicks and claws to make the same for the other hand.
Step 5: Slash, Slash Away
Once you have made the second template, slide your fingers in the gaps.
Your Wolverine Claws are ready!!! You can use these claws for a Halloween costume too!!
