Tigers are one of the most beautiful-skinned animals on earth with perfectly crafted stripes and deep colors. They are strong, mighty, and ferocious yet their faces are adorable like that of a cat. The urge to pet one is immense but dangerous as well. So, what to do? Looks like we have a solution for this problem. Creating one through art and petting it as much as you want.

Step 1: Taking a Sheet Of Paper
Take an orange sheet of paper and cut it into a big strip, three centimeters in width and thirty centimeters in length. Repeat the process and make another such strip of the same dimensions.
Step 2: Applying Glue
Take a glue stick and apply it on the top corner of the strip. Apply only on one side of the strip covering a small area.
Step 3: Pasting The Other Strip
Take the other strip you made in the first step and paste it on this sticky surface horizontally, only covering the top sticky part of the strip. The entire glued shape should form an,’ L’, shape.
Step 4: Making Overlapping Folds
Hold one side of the strip and fold it over the other. Now, take the other strip and make a fold over the previous fold. Repeat making these folds similarly, first with the vertical strip and then with the horizontal one until the strips reduce in length.
Step 5: Gluing The Open Ends
Apply some glue on the flat pile of folds and stick the end of the vertical strip on it and then glue the end of the horizontal strip on the already pasted end.
Step 6: Opening The Pile Of Folds
Opening the folds you will notice a bouncy, spring-like shape will reveal itself. This shape will form the body of the tiger.
Step 7: Making a Small Triangle
Take a small orange sheet of paper and cut out a very small strip and paste the ends of this strip. Pinch the pasted strip on one side a little and on the other side as well making a small triangle as shown in the picture below.
Step 8: Sticking The Small Triangle On The Top Surface Of The Spring
With the help of glue paste this triangle in the middle of the top surface of the spring made earlier.
Step 9: Cutting Out a Circle
Take an orange sheet of paper and cut it into a circle with the help of scissors. You can do that by drawing the circle first.
Step 10: Making a Face On The Circle
Take a white sheet of paper and draw two small circles on it and with the help of a pointed object start marking the drawings until they are cut into circles as it can be difficult to do that with scissors. Now, draw two circles at the bottom of these white circles with the sketch pen to complete the eyes and paste them on the circle next to each. Follow the picture below for reference. Take a sketch pen and make three marks on each side of the circle. Make a nose in the middle and some lines at the top as shown in the picture below. Take a red crayon and make two marks below the eyes. This will add some hue and liveliness to its face.
Step 11: Giving It a Pair Of Ears
Take an orange sheet and cut two small semi-circles and paste them at the top of the head behind the circle. Now, take a black sketch and draw two semi-circles on both ears right above the circle as shown in the picture below.
Step 12: Connecting The Head To The Body
Apply some glue on the small triangle you pasted on the spring earlier. Paste the head on this triangle and stick it properly. You can do that by inserting a pen refill into the hole in the small triangle and pressing its inner side to seal the head completely with the body.
Step 13: Adding Limbs To The Body
Draw four tiger limbs with paws on the orange sheet and cut them out. Draw two small lines on each side of the limbs and small lines on all three sections of the paw. Paste the limbs on the second and the last spiral of the right side of the spring respectively.
Finally, Cute Moving Paper Tiger Craft is Ready!!
Similarly, paste the other two limbs on the left side of the spring as shown in the picture below. This completes our tiger with all its limbs, body, and head. Congratulations, Cute Moving Paper Tiger Craft is Ready!!
