And again we return to this popular technique, this time it is an accordion paper sheep. The only difference from previous crafts is that the accordion needs to be made not square, but rectangular.
The following materials were used in the work:
- White paper;
- Gray cardboard;
- Black cardboard;
- A simple pencil, scissors, glue stick, felt-tip pens.
Accordion Paper Sheep Step by Step
We Make a Body
Like many other animals made in this technique, the body is an accordion. You can look at the example of a bear. But in this version, the harmonica has a slightly different shape, elongated. To create it, two strips were used: one 4 cm wide and 40 cm long. The other is thinner, but longer – 2.5 strip width, 60 cm long. As you can see, the stripes are long, standard A4 paper is not enough. But in this case, there is a way out – cut off the missing dimensions and glue. And then continue to make an accordion in the usual way. If there is a larger format of white paper, then skip all of the above and immediately cut off long strips.
Glue a thin strip at a right angle on a thick strip.
Start creating an accordion. Throw the thick strip up and smooth the fold, then do the same with the thin strip, laying them alternately on top of each other.
At the very end, glue the tip of the paper, if there are short excesses, cut them off. The body of a lamb made of accordion paper is ready.
In the same way, make a neck using very tiny strips, 1×3.5 cm in size.
We Make the Head and Paws
Draw and cut:
- From gray cardboard, the sheep’s head immediately with ears;
- From black – unpretentious paws;
- And from white paper – curls of wool on the forehead.
Glue the neck on the body, and the head on top, having previously drawn eyes and a muzzle on it, as well as gluing white curls.
Finish off by gluing the front and back of the paws. That’s it, the accordion paper sheep is ready.
