i think he likes it. it ended up in a small dark corner tough


i think i will make a antler-how to when i make another pair. it will take some time, but i'm sure that there will be more antlers.

I am wondering about using this 3d concept on other projects. I am so glad it was featured or I would not have seen it. Ab Fab for sure.

i'm sure there are a lot of interesting possibilities for other projects. it might be hard to design the whole pattern "by hand" tough. Even the template i used was computer-generated.

i like that it's pretty cheap and that there's no mold required does anyone here have an idea why the foam collapsed? or cheap non-collapsing filling alternatives?

What type of foam did you use? I know that great stuff expands so much that in a cardboard mold, it would probably explode. I looked at the pdf and there is a ton of folding there, on the bunny anyway. Looks like tons of work but fun.

Why not try to stuff with regular polyfill, should be able to get it in there enough to make it firm and not misshape.

i used PU-foam, and filled it in a few steps, so that it would not expand too much.
like first, i filled the half of the ears, let it dry. then the rest of the ears, let it dry, the head up to the nose and so on. this took about one day, and then the shape was fine.

the strange thing is that it collapsed after  about one week of being completely hardened.
in this case, i needed the foam to stabilize the antlers.
i tried to fill it with small fabric scraps first, but when the head was stuffed enough to hold the antlers, the rabbit's head became misshaped, the parts like where the eyes are sort of popped out but maybe this would work with thicker paper. I used 160g/m2, maybe it would work with 250g/m2 (sorry, i don't know how this works in the us)

you should totally make your own. and if not a jackalope, then the original rabbit. the test-bunny is sitting in my crafting room, it is a great piece of decoration

I would probably use cardstock and that would be difficult enough to fold without a bone folder, but would probably try.

yes. i just used the paper because that's the thickest my printer could handle but you're right. that would have been better
