Description

Hello cat lover! This listing is a set of 2 digital templates you can download, print, cut, and put together using scissors (or craft knife) and white glue.

After several hours... Tadaaaaaaaaa! You get a cute pair of cats you will be so proud of!

These two files are bundled up to make you save 25% on the regular price.

Here is Gus, the standing cat: https://www.etsy.com/listing/478105146
Here is Genevieve, the one climbing down the wall: https://www.etsy.com/listing/477374714


************************************
Gus and Gevenieve are siblings that used to squabble all the time over their mother's attention. Now look at them, they are inseparable. Seems like squabbles make bonds stronger.


************************************
TECHNICALITIES

Total Height: 82cm/32in
Total Width: 10cm/4in
Total Depth: 38cm/15in

Total number of parts: 37 + 54 = 91 parts.

Bicolored models as usual, so each file is divided into 2 to make it easier for you to print: for each cat, one file for the body, and one file for eyes and ears.


************************************
LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY
3/5 (due to tiny parts)

The templates are pretty intuitive but if you have never made a paper sculpture before, each step of the illustrated instructions will suggest you where to start glueing the next part.

Plus the enclosed tips and tricks will help you make flawless sculptures easily.


************************************
ESTIMATED TIME

Allow one afternoon for the half cat to complete.

The standing cat may take up to a day, depending on your glue, number of breaks you need and how much of a perfectionist you are.


************************************
ABOUT GUS, THE STANDING CAT

Gus has a hole in his right front paw so you can pin it to 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.

This file has been updated to make it easier to assemble.


************************************
ABOUT GENEVIEVE, THE CAT CLIMBING DOWN

Hang it on the wall like a picture frame thanks to the triangular hole at the back.
160 gsm paper (65 lbs) is enough, but you can chose a heavier card stock.


************************************
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.
