Lee-Kuo saw his mum’s paper dogs and decided to design his own system for paper weaving a dog. He found pictures of a dog on the internet and created the proportions in 3D. He then began weaving using his 3D model as a guide. This is his finished paper woven dog.

Lee-Kuo is now a teenager and we thought it would be a good age to watch the old classic Star Wars movies. He loved them and I really enjoyed watching them again, so we decided to look for the models I made about 10 years ago from Shunichi Makino and we found his web page. Lee-Kuo had so much enthusiasm he cut, glued and built these models early in the morning and evening. He is now building the X-Wing. Shunichi Makino website here

As you can see I love making paper models. This collection was for my kindergarten students as a thank you because they were really good for putting up with me for two years. I made them during their nap time for about 6 months. I chose not to use air conditioning (we need to save the earth) so I had to be careful not to drip sweat all over the paper. We live in Taiwan so the temperature was around 32 degrees Celsius. By the way I had 14 boys and 1 girl.
