Tigershark: April, Printable Freestanding Calendar

Damn it I'm so late with this post, lets blame Easter and no print shops being open. So here's April (can you believe it's April already). He's half tiger, half shark. Yeah you're got it this months little snapper is a tigershark, complete with strips and tiny fin.

Download 'Tigershark" here...

1. You don't need much to make the tigershark,  just some thick paper/card, a ruler, scissors and double sided tape or glue. Firstly download and print out the design.

2. Use the back edge of the scissors and a ruler, score along the grey fold lines. Be careful not to score through the ears!

3. Using a small sharp pair of scissors cut along the black dotted line. Go slowly when cutting around the ears, fins and tail. These can bit a little tricky.

4. Once you've cut the Tigershark and his fin make a small incision in his back along the white dotted line. Fold the fin in two and slip it into the cut. it should fit pretty well without help but if it's lose just hold in place with a little tape (on the inside of the design).

5. Now fold along the scored grey lines.

6. Put double sided tape or glue on the top side of each tab. Stick the taps to the body, so the flaps stick behind the adjacent part of the body.

7. Sweet you're done. Stand on your desk and enjoy!
