2008 Jan-Apr PANDA calendar

By
This is the PANDA January-April 2008 Calendar Toki
Toki = cute pod papercraft you make yourself

To use the file please DOWNLOAD it :)

*************************************************

To make your own calendar toki to use at your desk all you need to do is:
Download the PDF, print, cut, glue and fold

*************************************************

Super-duper extra instructions you'll never need:

1. Print: Any printer (laser or inkjet) will work well. If you'd like your toki to be sturdier and last longer I suggest using a heavier grade paper if your printer can handle it. To compare, a normal piece of paper is 24lb; 50-60lb is a good weight, but I wouldn't go over 80lb or your toki won't fold correctly.
2. Cut: Scissors work great but if you want to be super precise I personally use an exacto knife and straightedge. Razorblades/boxcutters work too, but PLEASE! Watch those little fingers and never put them in the way of the blade.
3. Scoring: is optional. Scoring means to crease the paper beforehand so it folds on the impressed line very precisely. I do this with the back of my exacto blade making sure to press very lightly. You may also use a mechanical pencil with no lead, the back of a sewing needle, a boning tool (yes a piece of flattened bone like a tongue depressor that has a sharpened point on one end used by professional bookmakers) or any tool that has a dull point. The goal is to 'score' the paper half way. Use a ruler in this step too. You may score while you're cutting, before you cut or even after you freed the toki from the paper.
4. Glueing: You only need one spot of glue for your tokis. If you have trouble controlling the flow of your glue or your children are squeezing it like a ketchup bottle here is a helpful hint. Drop a dab of glue on a scrap paper; using a toothpick, dip one end into the glue and apply it onto the flap.
5. Tucking: Your final step! Tokis are built with small slices in the flaps so when you tuck them in, it should lock.

Note: If you ever need to transport your little tokis from one location to another, simply squeeze the sides and pull out the flaps. Your toki is now flat and ready to move with you!

do mind if I request something? and if not, would you mind me slightly copying your idea? I'm just going to use the template. if you'd rather me not to, I don't mind either. thanks!~

You can always put in a request. ^^
I don't mind of course if you make your own papercrafts. I don't have a monopoly over them, but I do mind if you use my exact template as it took me months to get it just right.

Mmm. Do you mind if I use the box format? it'd prolly be a different size, too. I wouldn't do the ears and the face and the calendars the exact same, just the box shape. Is that alright? If not, I'll look it up online or something(:
milkbun's avatar
Oh yeah, I don't mind.
I just mean specifically don't lift the line art of my template and recolor it. =D
