Simple paper snake
All you need to make this snake is one sheet of colored paper. On the leaf, we draw the contours of our snake, just draw a spiral. Next, we can only cut out the snake along the intended contour, and draw eyes for it.
To make this craft, you will need two sheets of colored paper. It is better to use paper of different colors, so your craft will look brighter. All we need to do is take a leaf and fold it several times to make a long strip. You can do this, fold the leaf in half, then again in half and so on until you get a strip. Do the same with another piece of paper. Before you should be two strips, arrange them, as shown in Figure 7, bend the strips as if in a square, you should get an accordion.
- You will need a square sheet of paper, bend it in half on one side and the other, we need to do this to find out where the center of our square is. Place a sheet of paper with an acute angle in front of you to make a rhombus (Figure 1);
- Bend the upper and lower corners of the rhombus to the center (figure 2,3);
- Do it again (Figure 4);
- Flatten a sheet of paper and return it to its original position (Figure 5);
- Now it will be easier for us to make the snake even along the outlined lines. Fold up the bottom corner of the rhombus to the second division as shown in Figure 6;
- Bend the triangle with the accordion, figure 7.8;
- Repeat the same with the other side, finish the eyes;
- You will need a square sheet of paper. Place a sheet of paper at an acute angle to yourself to make a rhombus (Figure 1);
- You need to make an acute angle, connect in the middle the upper and lower parts of the figure (Figure 2);
- Continue to smooth the sheet in this way until you get the desired result (Figure 3,4,5);
- Now we need to make the head of a snake, bend up a small part of the figure as shown in Figure 6;
- Repeat the movement as in figure 7,8,9;
- The head is ready to make the body, It is necessary to bend the tail of the snake alternating now up and down (Figure 10,11,12);
- Draw the eyes and you’re done.
Paper Ring Snake
