Make your very own Bumblebee out of little more than paper and wood, with this easy to follow kit designed and made by the founder of Paper & Wood, Zack Mclaughlin.
With his love of nature, Zack often heads out with his camera in hand to capture all he can in the natural world. Inspired by the numerous stunning insects found in the British countryside, and a favourite of his is the very cute and fluffy Bumblebee!
Feeling very inspired Zack headed back to his studio in east London and started trying to recreate one out of paper... long story short, he now has one that you too can make in the comfort of your own home!
Using various techniques you will soon be a master of paper, creating form and texture from this most humble of materials. You'll learn how to emboss paper, feather paper, emboss plastic, bend craft wire into shapes as well as how to bring all these new skills together to create a stunning Bumblebee!
