How to Fold the Long Leg Paper Black Cat

Start from bottom dashed line.

The 1st Fold

Make a fold across the whole width of the paper, turning the paper over as you fold to find the lower legs on the back page.

Run your finger or a craft stick along the fold to make it nice and crisp. This will make the opening and closing of the template nice and easy.

Turn the template over and find the upper dashed line.

The 2nd Fold

Bring the fold that you’ve just made up towards the dashed line, making sure they’re aligned. The legs should now join as one with the spider hidden.

Run your hands across the top of the join and spread your hands across the paper, flattening and creating a new fold inside.
