This week's column is for those far craftier than myself.

Happy Monday, pawty people! Missing your weekend already? Sometimes my weekends are so crazy busy, I feel like I need another weekend to recuperate from my weekend! But alas, I haz work, and probably so do all of you — so that's not an option. But cheer up, everypawdy: Mondays can be fun! How, you ask? Papercrafts! It's the purrfect way to brighten your day and your kitty can help. Just kidding; your kitty will make this WAY harder. But whatever! You can let your kitty play with and/or destroy your hard work in the end.

The folks at Tubbypaws want to help you make your own Internet Box Cat or Keyboard Cat. I decided to go for Internet Box Cat.

Here's the diagram. Do not be daunted.

This is what you'll need:

Scissors
Tape
Glue
A dime or two (to weigh down the base)
Patience
Really tiny, dextrous hands would probably help

Follow the links above to free downloads of the diagrams to make these little fools. Print out a sheet and let the papercrafting begin!

If you get stuck, you should also watch this instructional video.

 

 

It's freaking adorable, and you will def need it if youre going to make this thing happen fo real!

Halfway through. Not bad, eh?

I took some pictures so you can see how awful mine turned out ... and also how my desk should be on an episode of Hoarders. I'm usually not this messy, I swear! (That is a complete lie; I'm really gross, actually.)

Here is what the final version of the little kitty looks like!

Finished! Not too shabby.
