Description

We joined Mama Elephant and Baby Elephant to create our family of elephants!
Can you imagine them wandering together on the grassy plains of Africa? We bet that's as happy as an elephant family can be!

Our Elephant Family paperlamps consist of a kit for you to build two models. Either with friends or individually, enjoy bringing to life two more members at your home. Make sure to take a few hours to assemble your OWL paperlamps – best results always require some dedication!

You can personalize their colours from our colour palette, but due to Etsy template restraints, only one colour can be picked from the colour option sidebar. This will be the default colour for both models, unless you send us a message clearly indicating the alternative colours for the Big Elephant and the Baby Elephant.

Dimensions:
Big Elephant - 32 cm tall
Baby Elephant - 24 cm tall

Difficulty:
Big Elephant - ●●●●○/ 34 pieces
Baby Elephant - ●○○○○/ 19 pieces


PRODUCT DETAILS:
This DIY papercraft kit includes two pre-cut paper models and two bases, each with an E14 light bulb socket, an electrical cord with switch and a europlug CEE7 (type C). Other plug options include UK plugs (type G) and EU to US plug adapters (type A). Also included is an assembly guide and an extra practice model.
Models are made with high quality 160g paper presenting good resistance and durability. A variety of colours is available, so take a look at our colour palette.
Product language: English only.

Note: Only use LED light bulbs with an E14 fitting. This is a european standard that might not be available in your country (e.g. US, Canada and Japan).

FAQs

Each kit includes a pre-cut paper model and a base with an E14 light bulb socket, an electrical cord with switch and a europlug CEE7 (type C). Other plug options include UK plugs (type G) and EU to US plug adapters (type A). Also included is an assembly guide and an extra practice model. Light bulbs are optional. Please note that you should only use LED light bulbs and that these must have an E14 fitting. This is a european standard that might not be available in your country (e.g. US, Canada and Japan).

Check each item's description for more information on each item's content.
You will spend a few hours assembling your paperlamp, so take time to do this in a relaxed way. Consider taking breaks between steps – there’s no need to rush.

Every model requires different assembly durations, depending on the complexity, size or number of pieces. Also, have in mind that some people are more experienced with modelling.

With some patience and dedication you will be happy with your result!
To crease the paper you will need a sharp end that does NOT cut (like the metal tip of a mechanical pencil) and a ruler.
You will also need glue, we recommend UHU® All Purpose Adhesive glue.
Only use LED light bulbs and equivalent energy saving light bulbs that do not generate heat. These should have an E14 fitting, which is a european standard and might not be available in your country (e.g. US, Canada, Japan).

Dimensions: max. 4,5cm diameter and 11cm height, except for the Barn Owl Paperlamp which uses a bulb with max. 8cm height.

We recommend about 200 to 400lm (lumen) intensity. The light bulb should not be in direct contact with the paper model. This will not happen if you follow the assembly instructions correctly and use an adequate light bulb.

Have in mind that light bulbs have different colour temperatures, we recommend 4000K. Your paperlamp’s glow may vary depending if you use a warmer or cooler light source.
