How-To Tuesday | Paper, Scissors, Sculpt!
Score the paper, make a cut, and give it a fold; that's gupit-gupit, the wonderful art of creating amazing three-dimensional sculptures. The name comes from Tagalog, the national language of the Philippines, and it means "cut cut." Master Ben A. Gonzales, a native Filipino, illustrates all the techniques in this unique collection of paper animals--and both kids and adults will love constructing them. It's easy. Each creature is made from only a single sheet, the directions are laid out in a straightforward manner, the patterns and pictures are nice and large, and the book's organization logically proceeds from simple forms (a snake, for example) to the more complicated giraffe. (The number of stars next to each project gives the level of difficulty.) Choose from a butterfly, bear, kangaroo, swan, squirrel, tyrannosaurus rex, whale and many others.
