How long will it take to assemble an OWL paperlamp?
You will spend a few hours assembling your paperlamp, so take time to do this in a relaxed way. Consider taking breaks between steps – there’s no need to rush. Every model requires different assembly durations, depending on the complexity, size or number of pieces. Also, have in mind that some people are more experienced with papercraft and model making. Most importantly, test your glue and skill on the practice model, so you feel more comfortable when you move on to your paperlamp.
Which auxiliary tools do I need?
To crease the paper you will need a sharp end that does NOT cut (like the metal tip of a mechanical pencil) and a ruler. You will also need glue to put the model together. We recommend UHU® All Purpose Adhesive glue or other equivalent glue types. These items are NOT included in the kit.
How do I crease, fold and glue the paper pieces?
Before you start, make sure you are working on a flat, clean surface and that all your tools are also clean.
To help crease the paper use a sharp end that does NOT cut, and a ruler. Face the printed side of the paper towards you and mark all the lines, then fold according to the type of line indicated.
Try the individual pieces on the model before gluing. Test your glue on a small area or on the practice model, so you know the correct amount you should use. Always place the glue on the reverse side of the printed paper, matching the flap numbers on the inside of the model.
Follow the assembly order given in the instructions guide.
