The interesting thing about these paper animals are the accordion-folded legs, feelers or bodies. You can use the same method to design other creatures. You’d get shorter spirals if you cut an A4 sheet of paper lengthwise. If you’re planning to make this craft with kids, it would be better to use thicker strips and even glue them together to make a longer spiral which could easily be folded by little hands.
I hope I managed to illustrate the process well… it’s actually so easy!
