Squawking Crow Paper Craft

I find crows fascinating, so I wanted to make a small paper model of one. All you need is construction paper, scissors, and glue. It's made of beautiful curls and casts beautiful shadows.

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 1 crow

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Turn your paper sideways and use your ruler to mark at every inch.
  2. Cut into 1 inch wide strips.
  3. To make the crow's body, curl one strip of paper into itself. The curl should be about 1 inch wide.
  4. Dab a bit of glue to the top of the end of the strip.
  5. Hold curl down into place for 15 seconds.
  6. Add a bit of glue to the end of another strip.
  7. Tuck it right under the edge of the curl, glue facing down onto the paper below.
  8. Wrap it over the first curl, leaving some space between them. Glue into place under, as well.
  9. Do the same with a 3rd strip.
  10. Now trim the crow's tail so the top strip is short, 2nd is medium length, and 3rd is longest.
  11. Use your finger to curl the tail segments upwards.
  12. To make the crow's head, cut out a small rectangle of paper.
  13. Curl it up tight and glue to keep closed.
  14. Glue a slightly longer strip onto it.
  15. Curl the longer strip around it. Glue into place and use pressure from your pencil to hold it closed.
  16. Glue the head onto the body. Hold in place for 30 seconds.
  17. To make the beak, take a piece of orange paper and give it a trifold as if it were a book cover.
  18. Unfold it and cut out an elongated octagon that is 1 inch wide.
  19. Fold it into a beak.
  20. Use the "spine" of the beak to attach to the crow's head.
  21. To make the crow's feet, and to hold up the bird nicely in position, tightly roll a small strip of black paper. Glue right under where its tail begins.
