Hen Craft Challenge

Michelle from Molly Moo invited a group of us to join her in a hen craft challenge: to create a paper hen that represents ourselves. How could I resist?

This hen represents my love of papercraft (especially automata), decorated with the UK flag (where my husband and I are from) and the US flag (where our son was born and where we currently live). Turn the handle and the hen nods her approval of this challenge!

I have to confess that I did not design this from scratch, but it is adapted from one of the great Rob Ives’ designs. I received¬†Amazing Paper Pets¬†last Christmas and his moving papercraft creations are just fantastic.

You can see a bit more of the mechanics in the photo below:

I tried to take a video of the movement but couldn’t quite manage the logistics!
