Fuse Single Sheet Boxes

Maureen Miller-Calamo

Wow, Fuse boxes that are out of a single sheet of paper! Maureen will teach you two boxes, the first of which can be used alone or accompanied with a strip closure (all right, that’s two sheets, but the box itself is still out of a single sheet). The second ingenious box looks like two merged cubes and begins the same way. Get ready for some precise pre-creasing fun.

Puma Head

Date and time
Sunday, October 1, 2017 at 10:30am - 12:30pm
Level
Intermediate
Teacher
Heidi Lenney

Hear me roar! You’ll certainly be purring and roaring with pride when you finish this wonderfully 3D puma head by Roman Diaz. Although the initial steps are just valley and mountain folds with clear landmarks, you will eventually need to fold in the air as the model becomes 3D with some crimps. This is a fantastic feline with muzzle, nose and curved ears. You know, puma is just another name for panther, so if you fold it out of pink paper…. Additional models as time permits.
