Item details

Gus is a lively, mischievous cat obsessed with flying bugs. He just saw one up there and tries to reach it...

He is also a smart kitten who loves books and art. He will be happy under a book shelf, a painting or a poster.

He looks funny when he tries to look at his own reflection in the mirror just above him. He tries, he tries, but can't reach it !

****************************************
This is a digital template you can download, print, cut, and put together using scissors and glue.

After several hours of your time, Tadaaaaaaaaa! You get a cute cat you will be proud of!
#HumbleBrag

****************************************
Height: 53cm/21in
Width: 10cm/4in
Depth: 38cm/15in

The template consists of 54 parts. Some parts are very small, especially the ones of the head.

Gus has a hole in his right front paw so you can hang it on the wall.

He won't collapse if you use a 180-200 gsm paper (65 lb COVER).
Caution: Much thicker paper will make the tiny parts much difficult to fold.

Bicolored model as usual, so the file is divided into 2 to make it easier for you to print:
11 pages for the body, 1 page for the eyes and ears.

***************************************
DIFFICULTY LEVEL: 4/5 (due to tiny parts).

Each step of the thorough instructions suggests you where to glue the next part.
Tips and tricks will make you start with confidence.

So you will be successful.

However, if you prefer to start with an easier, less time-consuming cat, let me advise you this one:

**************************************
ESTIMATED TIME
One afternoon to one day, depending on your glue, number of breaks you need and how much of a perfectionist you are.

This is an excellent exercice in patience, focus and mindfulness to free yourself from daily stress. But you already know that, right?

FAQs

Surprisingly, yes. Those sculptures may look impressive, but they are designed with *motivated* beginners in mind and have been tested by true beginners. The process of assembly has been made intuitive to relax your brain so that you won't have to figure out what step you should take next. The enclosed illustrated instructions make things even easier as they suggest where to start to glue each piece. That said, I wouldn't recomment the shark as debut model because the 3D teeth are tricky.

I would rather say adults and teens above 13, just to be safe.

■ Printer or your local print shop ■ A4 Paper (160-220 gsm) or US Letter (65 lb cover or 110 lb index like this one for example: https://www.amazon.com/Neenah-Astrobrights-Premium-Assortment-Inches/dp/B003A2I6T2) ■ Cutting tool ■ Scoring tool (the dull side of a craft knife, dried out ball pen, etc.) ■ Ruler ■ White glue ■ Pin or nail ■ And obviously, a wall.

■■■ PAPER Coloured or patterned A4 (160-220 g/m²) or US Letter American friends, this kind of cardstock is fine (this is *not* an affiliate link): https://www.amazon.com/Neenah-Astrobrights-Premium-Assortment-Inches/dp/B003A2I6T2 ■■■ GLUE Quick drying white glue! (mundane quick drying wood glue, or Aileen's, or Elmer's, or Mod Podge, an so on). I wouldn't recommend: glue sticks nor transparent liquid glues. Don't worry, all these recommendations are reminded in the instructions along with extra advice on how to glue properly.

Go to your local copy store with a thumb drive. They usually have a wide range of paper colours, and if you are lucky, various weights. They will print your template for you for next to nothing. Ask 180 gsm (65 lb cover) in priority, then 160 gsm (110 lb index) if they don't have 180. (The tutorial is to be printed on regular office paper, or not to be printed at all)

In this shop, you will find PDF patterns you can turn into paper sculptures. Nothing physical will be sent to you. You can download your files directly from your Etsy account a few seconds after your purchase. Here is how you can make your own paper sculpture: - - - Download & print the template (using A4 or US Letter thick paper) - - - Read through the getting started tips - - - Have a glance at the illustrated instructions Then start building: - - - Following the pattern, cut out each individual part - - - Score and fold along the dotted lines - - - Pair up the twin numbers to glue the pieces together After it's finished: - - - Hang on the wall using pins or nails, just like a picture frame - - - Be proud and do the happy dance :)

I do, as long as none of the files have been downloaded.

No, that's ok to download them multiple times. I'm just asking you not to share or publish the files though, and not to use them for profit of any kind. Don't mess with the copyright law.

Yes and no. You are allowed to sell the sculptures to make room for example. The point here is you can not make a business out of my work. Thank you.

This actually is not as hard as I thought it would be. It looks daunting at first...really daunting. Instructions say it took 7-10 hours which is pretty accurate. We did it in a group of 3, and it took about 4 hours working together.
