A three step, three piece CLAW MAKING TUTORIAL!!
Who's the guy from the picture from? He's a cutey : )
I'm going to make you a step by step claw making tutorial which i think should work! hooray! Three step, step by step claw making tutorial!!
A three step, three piece CLAW MAKING TUTORIAL!!(it involves three pieces)
1 Corrogated Cardboard (the stuff they use to pack fridges and stuffs, hint: look in your garage.)
1 Glue Stick/craft glue
1 Gaffa tape, or ordinary wrapping present tape (this is to seal the edges of the cardboard as they look kinda shonky if you can see the corrogations). hint: gaffa tape paints easier but don't worry if you don't have any, use normal tape dang nammit!
1 scissors For sharpening up the edges (craft knife doesn't do a too spiffy job at the sharp looking edges) hint: do not stick in eyes.
1 craft knife hint: for cutting out the cardboard!! hint 2: do not stick in eyes.
1. THE FINGER HOLDER!: Cut out a triangular piece of cardboard and make a hole in it for your finger, a ring is a great template for the finger hole.

This piece will be the underside of the claw. if you wish you can sort of bend this piece around a bit so it looks like the claw is crooked. HINT!: wondering what those scissors are for? sharpening up the edges ofcourse! the craft knife did a pretty shonky job yes? SCISSOR THEM!!
Attach side b of underside to side b of finger holder!
3. THE TOPSIDE OF THE CLAW!!: The trickiest bit to describe without paint... Bear (lol) with me for a second.

Attach sides a. of topside to sides a. of claw finger holder, after pfcourse sharpening sides with scissors.
STEP 4!! (i know one step too many): Gaffa Tape the crap out of the edges (so they don't look shonky) and paint the bajeesus out of.
I HOPE THAT HELPS! it took way longer than i thought it would.
I would like to NOT thank my mother and father because all the contributed to this guide was to tell me to go to bed.... v.v
GOODLUCK REI HARI!
EDIT: Frick!! real sorry for that, didn't realise it would screw up like that... if you post back saying i would love to see the guide with pictures i'll make paint pictures and post them... You might be able to get the gist of it without the pictures, good luck.
