How to make a bullfinch out of paper?

Use a simple template, or cut out a long black strip of paper or cardboard yourself. On one of its sides, make small stripes, rounded at the tips.


Also draw and cut out small wings, a beak and legs with jagged tips.


Roll the strip into a roll so that the tail area remains free. Glue. By the way, the strip can be cut twice as long, and after that it can be rolled not into a roll, but into a free spiral. Because of this, the bullfinch will turn out to be more voluminous. But in this case it is better to work with cardboard, the paper does not hold the spiral shape well.


Glue wings on the sides of the roll body, add eyes and a beak. It turned out to be quite a funny bird.
