I guess that you could make a crow from this too - just trim down the tail feathers.

Notes:
- Approx life sized - 45 cm wing span.
- Feather patterns were drawn by hand. The bottom of the blue feathers should probably be black but there's only so much sharpie fumes a person can take.
- I made a lot of changes from the pepakura file. The silhouette studio file is ready to go and there's a really basic pdf print out. You'll have to figure out the folding directions and how to assemble it for yourself (use your brain, I believe in you).

You can download the pattern here.

I hope you don't mind, I use your Magpie for a video explaining how to scale in Word and Acrobat...
If you do, please let me know and I will delete it from youtube.

I left a link with your Deviant page in any case.

Cool! Thanks a lot for the pattern, I managed to assemble it :D it's my second attempt at papercraft, woohoo~
I only had one problem with figuring out how to connect the parts - the tiniest element that goes in the front part of the wings, the triangle has same length edges and at first I glued the wing parts together, without this tiny piece, because they fit together too ;w; and it got me confused. I had to cut them and insert the piece, but it was really just a minor inconvenance.

Hello, could you detail how do you have colored them ? My goal is to colored them directly with the paper color, not with drawing. Thanks for your help :)

Use PDFill program to pull the templates/images off the PDF, then open them up in a coloring program such as MSPaint and color them. PDFill is a free program.
