Artist Makes Birds from Cardboard Packaging

Spring is sprung, da grass is riz, I wonder where dem boidies is? Well, actually, it’s the sweaty, 90º+ part of summer here at the moment, but after seeing these adorable papercraft birds, I couldn’t get that old poem out of my head.

These artful bird mini-sculptures were made by artist Ruud van Koningsbrugge, who created them out of torn up bits of packaging from various products. Rather than feathers, these fine friends are made from boxes from cookies, tea, frozen vegetables, and breakfast cereals. Other than that, there’s a bit of hot glue to hold them together, and some twisted wire for their legs and feet.

Ruud has shared an Instructables lesson so you can make your own cardboard birdies. It actually doesn’t look that tricky, assuming you have a good eye for color and start with some good reference images of birds to look at while you build yours. If you’re not feeling up to the artistic challenge, you can always purchase one of the artist’s ready-made original bird sculptures over on his Etsy shop.
