How to make paper claws?
Paper claws are fairly simple to make, but there are a total of three separate types of paper claw making. In general, this type of needlework is called origami. This is the oldest art with which paper can make any figure of any size, and sometimes make it move (for example, you can make a frog from colored paper, which when pressed will jump)
Paper claws are fairly simple to make, but there are a total of three separate types of paper claw making. In general, this type of needlework is called origami. This is the oldest art with which paper can make any figure of any size, and sometimes make it move (for example, you can make a frog from colored paper, which when pressed will jump). So let's move on to how to make the claws out of paper.
Method one: without glue and scissors
First, you should not think that such claws will fall apart immediately, as they are not glued together! You just need to correctly wrap the tips of the paper inside the claw, then it will retain its shape and will stick well on your fingers. To make it clearer how to make a claw out of paper, the procedure for handling a piece of paper is described in the form of sub-items, which should be followed one after the other in the same sequence in which they are indicated.
- Take a square piece of paper in such a way that the tips of it look up and down, that is, so that the sheet of paper presents itself as a diamond.
- Make a bag of paper, and when you make it, try it on the finger, which you plan to put on the claw. In other words, at this stage you are making the base of the claw, which is a cone, at the base of which is your finger.
- Carefully bend the protruding tips, securing them and at the same time supporting the claw so that it does not lose its shape. If you do it right, the claw will not fall apart and will sit well on your finger.
By the way, this method is good for those who have experience in making such claws, since the first time few people manage to make them properly, they need training. An interesting fact: in this way in America for the feast of all the saints (Halloween), children make claws on their fingers, painting them (or simply hanging them around their necks).
Method two: glue + scissors
This method is great for those who make claws for the first time or simply do not understand how to make paper claws without the use of glue and scissors. This method is distinguished by its unique simplicity: in ten to fifteen minutes of work, you can make claws for all your fingers. For this method, you will need: sheets of paper, the number of which coincides with the number of planned claws, scissors (they must be sharp enough, so do not take those who “chew” paper) and glue stick of good quality (not the ones that smear thick layers or even flow). So, let's begin.
- Fold a cone out of a piece of paper that will easily fit on your finger, but will not fall off.
- The tips that stick out from the base should be carefully cut with scissors.
- Glue the claw so that all glue is under the layer of paper, as it will stick and pick up fine dirt and dust, and this will spoil the overall appearance of the claw.
- Do all of the above steps as many times as you want to have claws.
Tip: if you have a desire to paint the claws, then wait until the glue dries on them, because the paint will "float" where there is a layer of glue.
Method three: without scissors, but with glue
Such claws are distinguished by a special strength, as they are fastened not only with glue, but with tips bent inwards. Before you make paper claws, make sure that the glue is of good quality and will not spoil the work.
- Make a small cone out of a piece of paper, try to put it on your finger.
- Glue the paper seams with glue.
- Bend the corners sticking out at the base and glue them so that they do not interfere.
Tip: do not wear your claws on your fingers until the glue is completely dry, because when you start to remove the claw from your finger, it will deform.
If you do it right, your claws will be neat and will not fall off your fingers. If you want to decorate your claws, you can color them, wrap them with colored threads, or weave them with wire with beads. Choose any way you like to make paper claws, and get to work!
