Halloween Cat

Just in time for Halloween, here is a little skeleton kitty:


This one is not very difficult to make. At the bottom of this post, you will find the printable PDF. There are two versions, the ‘regular’ one with a height of app. 8cm (3″) and a larger one app. 14cm (5 1/2 “) in height.

Here is how to build it: The templates are numbered. Glue each flap to the opposing side labeled with the same number. Start with the head:

Fold the black faces back and glue flaps 1 and 2 in place, forming the ears:

Now attach the second part via flaps 3 and 4:

Then fold the sides forward and glue them in place:

Finally, close the bottom of the head:

To make it look better, you can fill in the white edges with a black felt tip pen:

Next comes the body:

This is basically a box with one curved face. Just follow the numbers:

Attach the tail:

Now come the hind legs. They are symmetrical, so I’ll just show how the first one is done:

Glue flaps 24-27 to the side face, then flap 28 to the edge where the arm ends. Note that the foot (which in cats is much longer than in humans) extends beyond the point where flap no. 28 attaches:

Close the shape, then glue it to the body. There are two faces attaching to the body: No. 33 attaches to the side, and no. 34 to the bottom:

This is what the finished body looks like:

Finally, glue the head to the body. You can actually give it any angle you like. If you want, you can make your skeleton kitty look to the side.
