Cardboard Tube Birdie
July 9th, 2012 by Craftylocks


We were doing a bit of crafting with paper, as we tend to do quite a bit around here, and the younger crafter decided to make something from a cardboard tube.

She based the idea for the beak on something she had seen before.

Although this tube is not painted, we both agreed that it would have looked even better if we had painted it or covered it with paper first.

Fold some paper to make the beak, and make the tail with a tab to attach it to the tube. Attach the wings so that they stick out to the side a little, and the eyes so that they sit above the edge of the tube. See the pictures to see exactly what to do.

She has also made another cool craft with recycled cardboard tubes, a cardboard tube telescope.
