How to Assemble Low Poly Crafts Paper Models Tutorial


hi and welcome to Hedgehog Hollow hope
you’re having a great day today I want to have talk to you all about low poly
crass which appeared in my favorite things of 2018 and I want you to show
you how to build one because they’re so cute look at this lovely little catcher
that we made here who stands off in my little background so often that you see
him and then also Hannah built this seahorse and she’s also bought some more
she’s making you can get unicorn heads to put on the wall you may have seen
amber with her tiger head on I’ll pop a picture up if I can on the screen you
can get all sorts of fun things to go on the wall in nurseries there’s animals
you can get there’s all sorts of fun things and I also thought I would show
you how you make one so this is the Pug they come up with some instructions in
and there is also a QR code on the back here that you can get an instructional
video but I’m going to give you one as well so that you have some other options
it also gives you a difficulty level at the top here so that you can know how
hard each model is now when you get your model they have lots and lots of pieces
which we have here and then you also get a trial built so you get to have a
practice before you get going and that’s what we’re going to build in today’s
video but what I want you to show you is you’ll notice that each piece is
numbered so the first thing you’re gonna do is you’re going to put your pieces in
order so this one’s number one this one is 10-1 on here so you want to look at
that big number this one is 26 so you’re going to stack them in numerical order
that’s the first thing you’re going to want to do and then they also have a
smaller number so I’m going to bring this even closer so that you can see so
for instance in here this says 160 this says 160 so you would glue those two
numbers together we go like this this is 165 this says 165 you would glue this
together so you can see how this is kind of
together I’m going to assume this is probably the nosepiece so it would start
to go together like this so you would glue all of the alike numbers together
now I played with lots of different glues when we were putting our samples
together we tried just regular Elmer’s glue
we tried like print stick style glues like glue sticks
we tried tape runners we tried glue guns we tried all sorts of things and the
best glue we came up with was the nouveau Deluxe adhesive it dried clear
and it dried nice and quickly and also I could get small amounts because it has
that fine tip on it so let’s build our small one you are the two tools I found
I used the most was my Teflon bone folder and my tweezers so they’re the
two things I have to hand here so this is my bow tie that comes in my kit so it
has three pieces so I have a piece number one I have piece number two and
of course I have piece number three so we’re gonna start with piece number one
and we’re going to just start folding along some of these lines and it’s kind
of pre scored a little bit for you so you’re gonna find that these are really
easy to start folding so I’m just gonna fold all around and then I’m also going
to just use my bone folder to make sure those creases a nice and the thing I
like about the Teflon bone folder as you can see it has this curved edge to it so
when I’m taking those scores I just run it along there and I’m getting a nice
fold and it’s not damaging my cardstock in any way
it’s just kind of helping those fibers and paper really is just fibers put
together just bending them nicely so I’m just going around and so I’m going to do
this to all of my pieces so now we have all our pieces folded and scored ready
to go so let’s start with our adhesive and what I like to do is squeeze a
little bit onto a surface now you a piece of parchment paper if you have a
glass mat if you’re a crafter you can use that too you really don’t use much
glue and then what I like to do and again you could use a cotton bud it does
have a fine tip on the adhesive so you don’t have to do it this way this is
just how I like to work I just take a little micro brush and again I buy these
on Amazon and I just put a little bit of glue along the edge this is my number
one and then I have a number one on here and what you’ll notice is this one has a
circle that means it’s gonna be a mountain fold so it’s gonna be an up
fold but I’m just going to add ear this onto here flaps go on the inside I never
want to line it up as best as you can now whilst that’s drying we’re going to
work on our number two my number two is over here and I already touched that my
number two is over here so again I’m just gonna pop a little bit of blue
along here and you can see this gives me nice control you could also do it with a
toothpick that would work well too and if I’m in little areas I mean this is
not one of them but I’m just going to show you I would do this with my
tweezers so I would just stick it down and hold it down with my tweezers my
number three is over here and my number three is over here I now see that this
number 24 is going to want to stick onto this tab so I’m gonna do that at the
same time so again I’m going to take my little bit of adhesive this time going
to put pop this on the flap here this because it’s easy to get to so you can
see these really come together quickly and we built the cat in about an evening
and a bit it didn’t take very long at all why don’t you get going it’s really
all about the prep work as with many of these projects just prepping it making
sure your folded bone folder is a really good investment we found we were really
glad we had one I sent one of the girls home with a bone folder
lots of deceives all those kinds of things so I’m just gonna keep working
along here and I’m just gonna keep building my little bow tie
which is our practice project and you can keep watching I’m gonna speed it up
just so that you don’t have to sit here watching me fold all these from piece of
I’m gonna keep just working in order and then we’re gonna have our finished boat
hi q Anna we’re always sunny Asian we fight
to make love at the same time would you break up just because I’ve
told you I recall the time she said sorry not sure if you stolen give me a chance just just let us keep with a black you know to see if you golly I’m missing
when you seem too far away okay so I have finished my cute little bow tie
you saw it come together there so one thing you’re gonna say is definitely pay
attention to the numbers because I salud one of those numbers in the beginning
out of sequence Gregg is laughing because he knows I am terrible at
following instructions and following them by numbers or to the letter like
actually following through on instructions so I then had to kind of
make it work I’m Adriene and I can’t remember his girlfriend’s day and the
two of them run the company they’re so sweet I met Adrienne at the National
stationary show which is how I found out about low-poly crafts and their company
is growing so big it’s amazing to see there recently in Oprah Magazine and
things but look how cute this is and it was really really simple and then you
can kind of hang this and he had oh I don’t like this throughout the show it’s
really really sweet to watch but yeah they’re really simple if you follow the
numbers while this I got back on track with my numbers I was good to go but
it’s really fun to do you can sit or anything it’s something you can do in
front of the TV I really find that this is great and the nouveau Deluxe dries
nice and quickly if you get this I will link up these particular tweezers they
have a really like long nose on them so when you get in there you can like in
the back here when I was putting this last piece together I can like really
get in there and hold those two pieces together which I find really really
handy so they are my top tips my tools and how you a symbol assemble even a low
poly cross thing so from me and my new pet cat because these are the only kinds
of pets allowed in this house then we will say goodbye don’t forget to give us
