How to make your own toilet paper shield

I've been really busy this couple of weeks and this is the only papercraft I have made. My father's 2 cats are currently living with us and they're always trying to destroy the toilet papers. I hastily made this about 2 weeks ago and realized I can't just give the template because the measurements may differ. And today I've finished making the tutorial on how to make your own toilet paper shields! Yey! If your toilet paper holder might have a different design, you might need to make some adjustments to the shield design.

The picture below shows what the shield should look like with this type of toilet paper holder. As you can see, the cats had an opportunity to shred the toilet paper while I was making the shield. You can see the tutorial after the cut.

If you think my works are worth something, you may donate to PAWS using Paypal. PAWS is one of 3 non-government organizations I know in the Philippines that rescues animals from cruelty and neglect. Aside from taking care of animals in their animal shelter, they are also volunteering in caring for animals in flooded towns caused by typhoons. They have a one time gift option at the bottom of the online donation page. Happy Holidays!!!

Pokemon Building #2

I bring you the Pokemon Center papercraft! Assembly is similar to the pokemon mart.

Yesterday I was browsing some Pokemon Diamond screen shots and realized that the PC and PM only have the gray posts at the front of the building. I didn't want to remove the posts around the building so it won't look boring at the back.

I really should have made papercraft buildings of games I actually played. Like Harvest Moon... hmmm... not a bad idea.

Pokemon Building #1

It's a pokemon building papercraft! I might do the others if I have time. Lots of pictures after the cut.

I'm not quite sure if this is what it's supposed to look like but it's the best I could do after staring at the 2D sprites from the game.

Kitty Cats!

Here are the cats to go along with your Yasmine papercraft! A little harder than usual because it's cylindrical and both ends are to be closed. For easier assembly, use a glue with a faster drying time than Elmer's glue.

I just re-textured the papercraft cat from here. Also changed the feet to so that both sides will have color on it. You can rescale it using Foxit pdf reader to make it smaller.

Really confusing Assembly Instructions: Cut the template. Fold and glue the ears, tail and feet. Pre-curl (is that even a word?) the body by running it along a side of the table so it will curve easily. Insert the feet through the slits at the bottom of the body. Glue the body to form a elliptical cylinder. Close the model by gluing the face and the butt to the body.
