How to make a Papercraft Dragon
Select at least 3 different shades of the same colored craft papers for the papercraft dragon. Trace the template patterns on the selected craft papers; but make sure to trace the body pattern and the leg patterns on 2 different shades of paper; and trace the head and the lower face pattern on 2 different shades of craft papers. Cut out the traced patterns nicely.
Attach the lower face cutout on the bottom side of the head cutout; attach the wing patterns on both sides of the body cutout.
Attach the horn cutouts on the top side of the head pattern and attach the tail cutout on either side of the body pattern, below the wing.
Attach the ear cutouts on both sides of the head pattern; and attach the leg cutouts on the front side of the body pattern.
Now, attach the head to the top side of the body pattern by slightly overlapping both patterns.
Attach the eyes cutouts near the top side of the head pattern. Use a sharpie to draw the nose and the mouth of the dragon on the lower face pattern.
