crow, paper craft, skeleton -

An artist named Sinansoykut created an Instructables.com post about building a paper crow skeleton. It's pretty amazing. I don't think I'm going to build one quite as nice as this.

We’ve done this to give you the best shopping experience possible!  We hope our new store is as fun for you to visit as it was for us to build. Please share your feedback on the new store and let us know what we can...
