Does anyone know how to make grass grasshoppers? I've seen it in ''Find The Light'' when Bosco made one and gave it to Tavia.

yeah..I do find those grasshopper cute and pretty. Someone taught me once, but it's been a while and i have forgotten...the process seems so complicated and hard.

I have the instructions to make it, but can't read it....it would be nice if someone can translate it into english.

Here's the picture of the grasshopper and the instruction...

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Yep, i know....just by looking at the pictures, it's hard. I think being able to read the directions would make it more easier...which i don't know how to read it...humm...

Anyone willing to translate? :worship

Ok, I have dodgy chinese (especially HK writing), but I'll give it a go at translating and hope it helps out with the pictures and a few words...

The top heading say materials needed are:
1 strip of ribbon 1.5 x 28 inches (this is the grasshoppper body)
1 strip of ribbon 1.5 x 4 inches (this is the grasshopper's wings)
and 1 piece of wire (no specifications on length)

Method:

1. Something along the lines of folding the 1.5 x 28 inch ribbon in half (length wise) and placing the piece of wire along the fold - but only along where the solid double ended arrow is. Cut out the ribbon as shown in the image (along dotted lines).

In Picture: the ribbon's left is its tail while the head is on the right.

2. Cut along the fold as shown by the dotted lines - that is, leaving 7.6cm uncut at the tail end.

3. Bend the wire toward the tail end of the grasshopper, leaving 7.6cm (as its loop length I'm guessing)

4. Ok, this is where my translating's a bit limited...it says something like following the arrows' directions, wrap the ribbon around the wire. Do the same for front and back.

5/6. Fold the ribbon upwards. Then fold it back down toward the bottom right - along the dotted line. (think they called this a traingle fold or something...essentially, it's a wing I guess.)

7. Bring the ribbon around the piece of wire and slip back through as shown by the arrows. Steps 5/6/7 are done to both front and back. 4 times each side, totalling 8 times. This is the lower part of the grasshopper.

8. Grab the shorter piece of ribbon and position as shown in the picture to form the wings.

9. Continue doing as did in step 7...that is, continue the looping around the bare wire. Do this 3-4 times each side...totallying 6-8 times in total. After this, slip the excess ribbon through the wire loop and tug on the wire from below so that the loop tightens and forms the head.

10. You may wish to add two coloured pins into the head as eyes and then cut the excess ribbon to form two stalks.

That's very good darwin9090, looks like the real thing. I think it is even harder to make with paper, since you were successful, i bet if you use ribbon or grass to make, it would look really pretty.

Awww... I want to try on this one too. =)
Want to share it with the kids.
In November, I will going there to see them as a volunteer work.
Would be nice to able to share those thing with the kids.
Someone here didn't share her 3D owl with me but I still didn't do it. oops... find it so hard.
I wonder if this is much easier.
I am going to show the kids, bamboo stick dance too. I really love to see the kids smile and enjoy it.
So looking forwards to all the handcrafts here. Thank you so much for sharing.

Hey guys, thank you so much for this, especially Darwin-that name suits you since you're so clever! You are a genius, making one and making such simple instructions.

I'd been searching so long for instructions, and finally saw it. I really can't thank you people enough.

I still can't figure out how to make it. o.O Even with the translated instructions, it still seems complicated. Does anyone know where to get simpler instructions?
