Alexander Calder was an American sculpture known for his colorful giant sculptures . See some examples of Calder's work in the pdf link below.
1. Take a cardstock rectangle. Decorate it with markers, crayons, or colored pencils if desired.
2. Fold it in half.
3. Make cuts similar to those in the picture that almost reach the fold.
5. If desired, use colored stickers to decorate.
6. Fold, alternating folding one toward the back and the next toward the front. Alternate this way to allow your sculpture to stand. (For example, the right side would be back, front, back, front, etc. and the left side would be front, back, front, back, etc.)
Get creative with your cutting to create additional amazing sculptures!
