This is the January-April 2009 NEOPOLITAN PIG Calendar Toki
Toki = cute pod papercraft you make yourself

To use the file please DOWNLOAD it from the left-hand menu :)

*************************************************

To make your own calendar toki to use at your desk all you need to do is:
Download the PDF, print, cut, glue and fold

*************************************************

Super-duper extra instructions you'll never need:

1. Print: Any printer (laser or inkjet) will work well. If you'd like your toki to be sturdier and last longer I suggest using a heavier grade paper if your printer can handle it. To compare, a normal piece of paper is 24lb; 50-60lb is a good weight, but I wouldn't go over 80lb or your toki won't fold correctly.
2. Cut: Scissors work great but if you want to be super precise I personally use an exacto knife and straightedge. Razorblades/boxcutters work too, but PLEASE! Watch those little fingers and never put them in the way of the blade.
3. Scoring: is optional. Scoring means to crease the paper beforehand so it folds on the impressed line very precisely. I do this with the back of my exacto blade making sure to press very lightly. You may also use a mechanical pencil with no lead, the back of a sewing needle, a boning tool (yes a piece of flattened bone like a tongue depressor that has a sharpened point on one end used by professional bookmakers) or any tool that has a dull point. The goal is to 'score' the paper half way. Use a ruler in this step too. You may score while you're cutting, before you cut or even after you freed the toki from the paper.
4. Glueing: You only need one spot of glue for your tokis. If you have trouble controlling the flow of your glue or your children are squeezing it like a ketchup bottle here is a helpful hint. Drop a dab of glue on a scrap paper; using a toothpick, dip one end into the glue and apply it onto the flap.
5. Tucking: Your final step! Tokis are built with small slices in the flaps so when you tuck them in, it should lock.

Note: If you ever need to transport your little tokis from one location to another, simply squeeze the sides and pull out the flaps. Your toki is now flat and ready to move with you!

I just use 8.5 x 11 paper. I use Epson paper which is a bit more expensive. I like it because it's just a little bit thicker and it has a nice smooth coating.

It's so beautiful n_n
I just made it, with a slightly thicker paper, and it worked just great! I never knew these could be so little work - and especially so little glueing! Quite a stroke of genius, doing it this way... I used to make boxes like these for my friends on special occasions, but there was always more glueing involved, and a big mess haha ^_^ Thanks for the great inspiration, maybe I'll make some of my own now!!
The cute piggy sits on my monitor now, smiling at me :-D

I printed one out and my boyfriend cut it and put it together for me! I love it! :heart: But I noticed there is a typo for January! You have January 19th twice instead of 18 then 19. Just wanted to let you know. :P

Very nice :) I have one question. For your tokis, do you use cardstock paper or any other hard, durable paper? Because I don't think printer paper will make the tokis very 'strong'
Reply
:iconmilkbun:
milkbun Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2009  Professional General Artist
Yeah I agree. I've used regular 24lb copy paper and it has come out alright, but I find slightly thicker higher grade paper is more worth it for nice tokis.

:icondumblydoor:
DumblyDoor Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2009
so is cardstock alright or should it be thinner?
Reply
:iconmilkbun:
milkbun Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2009  Professional General Artist
I wouldn't go above 80lb or it might not fold properly. I'm not sure what cardstock is specifically, but it should say on the package.
