Paper shark models are pretty rare, especially those you can hang on the wall.
Are you a Shark Lover? Have you ever imagined how cool it would be to have a Shark Sculpture for your home or office? It's even cooler if part of it is still immersed in the wall like this one!
The good news is you can make it yourself!
This pdf template turns into a lively 1-meter long Shark.
The process of assembly is easy to understand, but for this model, it is better if you have already made a paper sculpture before (because the 3D teeth are tricky).
In any case, I will take you through the entire process with step by step instructions. Soon you will be proudly displaying your very own Shark!

Use A3 sheets print it 141% (not 200%!).
Printing at 141% gives a 1.41-metre long shark. But careful, you willl need bigger hands!
➽ 𝗢𝗣𝗧𝗜𝗠𝗜𝗦𝗘𝗗 𝗙𝗢𝗥 𝗕𝗢𝗧𝗛 𝗔𝟰 & 𝗟𝗘𝗧𝗧𝗘𝗥
Just print at 100% and you are good to go
You can also print on A3 and scale it up to 141%, but this will be more difficult to make!

You can use either white cardstock and spray paint it, or coloured/patterned cardstock. I recommend against metallic paper, which takes longer to dry.
For all my prototypes, I personally use Iris Vivaldi® by Canson® in 185 gsm, which comes in 50-sheet reams. They have 30 colours to choose from.
Brands like Recollections®, Astrobrights®, Clairefontaine®, to name a few, are also good options.
You can also go creative with patterned paper provided that it is thick enough.
For a cheaper alternative, go for Bristol paper, but it usually comes in white. You may then need to use spray paint it (in bronze, gold, silver, etc.), which is good for concealing potential glue smears.
➽ 𝗚𝗟𝗨𝗘 𝗜 𝗥𝗘𝗖𝗢𝗠𝗠𝗘𝗡𝗗
Any wood glue or any craft glue will do.
Fast drying one is a plus, but it is optional.
I personally pour some wood glue into a metallic lid. Then I apply a few drops onto the tabs with a toothpick before I spread them out in a thin layer. You need very few glue!
Remember to buy some for your friends. It's the unique gift idea!
