Sparrow Packaging

I packaged some Sparrows in Squirrel packaging 3″ packaging. They came out really nice but it’s really hard put together. The shapes of the pieces are different and this makes it very tricky to get them into the packaging using the Squirrel technique . I mean hard. Like rocket science.

So I tried it with 4″ packaging. Works like a charm! It goes together very easily and looks even better. I’m very pleased.

Sparrow Report

Dinkar just made his first Sparrow:

Wow..!! Just great design..!! As simple as Squirrel. You just want to use a craft glue a couple of times and its ready to fly!! I am really impressed with this design.

I enjoy its making today and tried to fly it in front of school, but due to lack of space, I controlled myself for its long flight. I didn’t want to loss this cute sparrow.

Hey Darcy, I will fly it on coming Saturday (half-day for school) and will take video too.

Thanks for the Sparrow.
