Create a wonderful array of 3D animals with Clare Youngs' beautifully easy projects. Here are 35 quirky woodland animals for you to make in no time. Using simple slotting techniques, you can make a whole menagerie using just cardboard, found paper and scissors or a craft knife. From the crafty fox to the elegant stags, from the cute koala and her baby to the mischievous squirrels, every animal is specially designed by Clare Youngs to require a minimum of effort to put together. The projects are inexpensive, too, as cardboard is so readily available and easy to find, so anyone can have a go at creating a cute creature. You can then use them as highly individual decorations for your home or give them as gifts. Once you start creating, there really is a world of possibility for what you can make for yourself or your friends. The projects are accompanied by clear diagrams and there is a comprehensive tips and techniques section that explains all the skills you will need.
