Have you ever heard the song "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas"?
This layered papercraft project was inspired by that tune! I love the idea of unwrapping a gigantic hippo as a new pet on Christmas morning!
If you too have dreamed of your own hippopotamus for Christmas, now you CAN have one... and he is much easier to take care of than a real one!
I cut my design at 7.5 inches wide (6.726 tall). I don't recommend going smaller than about 4 inches in width as some of the cuts will get a little bit too tiny and hard to stick.
***** HOW TO USE *****
After purchase you will be given a link to download the files.
You must unzip the downloaded folder before you can use the files.
If you are using a phone/tablet then you may need to install an app/program to allow you to unzip files.
The zip folder contains the design in these formats: SVG, DXF, PNG
For Cricut Design space, use the SVG file. This is one where the filename ends in .svg
You may need to resize the design when it opens in Design Space as it sometimes appears quite small. All the layers are grouped, so you can easily resize them all at the same time and they will all stay in proportion with each other.
A full assembly guide PDF file is included which show the order in which to stick the layers together.
