How to make a DIY papercraft Fish out of toilet rolls

Let`s learn how to make a papercraft fish. I had a lot of toilet paper rolls and made my crafts out of it without saving.

This craft took me four rolls.

Roll 1 – the head.

Slightly flatten the roll:

Cut out the fins from the fourth roller. Please note – they must be large enough so that you can bend the flaps at the base of each for gluing.
