7 easy schemes for making paper claws
Children or guests at a theme party will be delighted with paper claws. You think that they are too difficult to do? Nothing like this! And we are ready to demonstrate in practice 7 simple schemes for making paper claws at home.
1. Claws from a strip of paper
Fold a rectangular strip of paper with an aspect ratio of at least 1: 3 - 1: 4 into a flat pentagon. Fold it in half and mark the diagonal from the bottom corner to the top. Lay a side to it that protrudes more strongly, and again fold the part in half. Insert a small edge into a large pocket to form a claw. Done!
2. Claws of the dragon
To make small but powerful claws at your fingertips, cut a piece of paper into eight pieces. For the whole claw you will need one such blank. Better take the sheets denser, because otherwise they will be too thin and wrinkled.
Wrap both corners on opposite sides diagonally in the middle of the small rectangle. Expand the part and bend it in the middle to get a kind of letter “M”. Fold the blank in half again and insert one corner into another to form and secure the claw.
3. Full finger sharp claws
Turn the square of the paper toward you and mark the vertical diagonal. Wrap both sides of the upper vertex to it and fold the workpiece again in half with a fold to the left. Approximately in the middle, wrap the lower part to the right and shift the future claw to the other side.
Fold a high triangle to the side along the edge, and use the remaining protruding corner to form a pocket to secure the claw. Carefully put them on the phalanges so that the protruding part covers your finger.
4. Claws from A4 paper
Divide a regular sheet of A4 paper into a square and an elongated rectangle. It is not necessary to draw stripes with a pencil - you can simply mark yourself visually. Turn the corner of the square diagonally to this line and fold it again into a triangle. Wrap the upper and lower corners to the same line to make a trapezoid on the right.
Fold the blank in half twice, unfold the last fold and lay the lower part with the tip to it. Repeat the same thing from the back so that you get a cone-cup. Wrap one or both protruding edges inward so that the paper claw holds its shape better and sits firmly on the finger.
5. Paper claws for beginners
Flat paper square, turn to yourself at an angle and mark the vertical diagonal. Turn to her right side, and lower the top peak back along the same line. Lay the side triangle along the central fold to the left and insert the free edge into the makeshift pocket.
6. Wolverine claws made of paper
You will need six sheets of A4 paper, each of which needs to be marked into six pieces along the long side. Twist the edges above and below twice so that they converge at the center. On one side of the strip, wrap the corners, and then again, but more.
Fasten the sharp part and base of long claws with transparent tape or glue. You can attach three pieces to a short tube of paper that you will squeeze in your hand. During games with Wolverine's claws - watch out for safety, because they are long and sharp enough!
7. Small claws on the phalanges of the fingers
Take a paper square, fold it diagonally and bend in the middle of the resulting triangle. Fold back the upper corners and fold it back so that the claw is easier to form on the finger. At the end, fold the bottom of the triangle to the fold line and fold the figure into the ring, inserting the protruding corners one into the other.
