The Kirigami Project - Week 41 - Bats

Who knew bats could be so pretty?! Don't you just love that ruffled flower right in the centre?

They certainly aren't this lovely when they somehow make their way into your house on a summer night and you have to chase them out with a broom while they swoop at your head and visions of teeth-so-sharp-you-don't-even-feel-the-bite dance in your head.

But these bats are both toothless and rabies-free, so go ahead and craft up a whole flock. Or rather a whole cloud of bats. Collective nouns are the best!

To create your own Bats Kirigami design, use the template below and the 6-point folding pattern.

These bats are a hint of what to expect from our next spooky kirigami design... a creature which sometimes appears in the form of a bat....

The Kirigami Project is collaborative creative project from Marisa Edghill of Omiyage and Geri Jewitt of The Languid Lion. Marisa creates the kirigami designs and Geri turns them into printable templates. Each week in 2014, we will bring you a new kirigami design to fold and cut. Find the treasury of designs here.
