Some weeks ago my sister got a gift from someone who knows her very much: she has all sort of
keepsakes around her bedroom and she LOVES penguins. Aren’t these cute containers a perfect gift for her?
I am so happy publish a tutorial here because I fell in love with this craft as soon as I saw it, and I look forward to making it with the kids, maybe decorating them with other animals’ shapes.
The body is a piece of a very very thick paperboard tube.
All the parts (body, legs, wings, beak and head) where previously colored with acrilyc spray paint.
1) The “lid” ( a circle of cardboard ) opens and closes since it is anchored to the body with a thumbtack.
2) The bottom and the legs ( hard cardboard) are fastened to the body with nails.
3) The wings are made of black paper and just glued to the penguin’s body.
4) The beak is made of two triangular pieces of plastic, glued together and to the penguin’s face with super glue.
I hope this is useful for you 🙂
Enjoy crafting with or for your children!
