Get Crafty: Paper Standees

Our bird’s nest DIY or Paper Standees was featured in The Straits Times column Get Crafty by Keziah Toh. We wanted to share a printable template so you can copy the exact design and make your own Kokoru birds. Send us photos of the birds you make using our template and we will feature them here.

Sponsored Post: Kokoru Corrugated Paper

We were asked to review the Kokoru Corrugated Paper by toprint.com.sg, the local distributor. We were given several packs of Kokoru Ichi, which are long strips of colorful paper, and Kokoru Hachi, which comes in A4 size, to create 3d creations. You can create so many objects by combining the basic shapes.

Gnome Garden

You can copy the designs from the back of the packet but we decided to make our own garden themed creations just to see if it was really easy to come up with an original design.

Bird’s Nest

The most difficult part is coming up with the design. Once you have a design in mind, you can easily execute it if you built the design using basic shapes. All you need is a pair of scissors, pencil, hole puncher, and hot glue gun to bring your creation to life.

The Flower and The Bee

When doing this project be extra careful of the hot glue gun. We managed to burn ourselves with the melted hot glue a few times because we got a bit careless.

Overall we had fun making the models. This is a great activity for kids but you need to be careful with the hot glue gun. You can buy Kokoru products at Evergreen stores.
