  • How to make a paper model. Easy Paper Songbirds - Step 1
    Step 1

    Start by cutting two strips of paper. You can make them just about any length and thickness you’d like. The only hard and fast rule is that they must be the same thickness, and the one for the head should be shorter. I used 3/4″ for the thickness, and 6″ and 2″ for the length.

    Next, glue the shorter strip to make a circle. This will be the bird’s head.

    You’re also going to make a loop out of the longer strip. You’ll want about a inch to stick out from the loop to form the bird’s tail.
