Papercut scraps as templates for bird paper sculptures.

Cutaway parts from my birds & worms papercut sculptures post.

Letter size copy paper, 8.5 x 11", cut in quarters. Fold a quarter piece in half the long way. The cutaway parts here go along the fold. Use them as templates. Trace and cut out. Then experiment to fold them as you wish. Draw and color them too if you like. Mine are experiments.

The engineering is not perfected, but they did manage to stand. The last in the line is a skinny rocket shape. A child had made one in such a fashion and was disappointed that it was not more like a bird. So, I tried one too, to see if one could make a bird from it. Of course one can. The 'bird' pulling up a worm is in a previous post.
