I love doing craft projects with my kids, and this is one that we all enjoyed doing together. We decided to try this DIY Paper craft from Resident Design and decided upon Lilly the Bird. The below was provided to me to help facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and honest. I am disclosing this in accordance to FTC Guidelines.
Lilly the Bird is a DIY paper animal that you bring to life using the materials included in your Resident paper craft kit.
This is a special Lilly the Bird created in collaboration with artist Rachel Miller (check out our blog post about her here) and see her Instagram here. We printed her wonderful design to create the super cool 2D design of this awesome little bird.
Lilly likes working with her wings, wandering in the woods, and reading science journals. She is extensively tattooed and if you ask her nicely, she’ll tell you the story behind her exotic look. As the most mobile animal in this collection (so far), she loves to brag about how she can look in any direction while her other friends like Leonard the Moose are stuck with the same view every day… so make sure Lilly gets an awesome view wherever she ends up in your home!
This was so much fun to put together, and it was easier than I thought it was going to be. When the kit arrives you will find 10 cut and scored pieces, 1/2 ounce of glue and instructions. I love the fact that this came with everything you need to put it all together.
We sat down at the table and layed out all the pieces, got the instructions out and got to work. The instructions are very well written and easy to understand, even my 11 year old was able to read and understand them. It took us about an hour and 15 minutes to put this together and when it was finished it looked absolutely stunning. They say the difficulty level on this project is pretty easy and I’d have to agree, it wasn’t difficult at all.
This is a great project for kids and adults, and it’s really fun to go together with your kids. I highly recommend this for anyone who loves crafting and DIY projects.
