Accordion Paper Tiger Step by Step

At the first stage – the creation of the body, which is a complex accordion. For it, you will need two long strips of cardboard. The size is at your own discretion, these strips are 4 cm wide, and the length is equal to the wide side of A4 paper.

Glue the strips as shown in the photo.

To make an accordion, you should bend the strips on top of each other, observing the order. First bend and throw up the bottom strip. Then fold the left strip to the right. Continue the action until you reach the very ends. Glue them together and trim off the excess.

This is how the body turned out like an accordion.

Make a neck for the tiger, to which we will later glue the head. Cut off a small strip of cardboard.

Fold it into a simple accordion.

Cut out paws from orange cardboard. The shape can be varied as you like, the main thing is to correlate the width with the accordion-body, and also determine the length.

Glue the paws to the accordion in front and behind, bend the tips.
