Occupy kids, decorate with Wildcat, Cardinal paper toys

March 29, 2012 

The finished version of the craft paper toy University of Louisville Cardinal and University of Kentucky Wildcat by Lexington Herald-Leader artist Chris Ware.


Herald-Leader artist Chris Ware also created a pair of three-dimensional, game-ready paper craft toys you can download and assemble for Saturday's showdown between the UK and UofL in the Final Four.

Use them as ­decorations, to hoist in the air while cheering for your team or to occupy your kids while you're concentrating on the action. Or create your own Wildcat puppet theater. (See video.)

To make these yourself, download and print the designs and instructions. For best results, print on card stock. Scissors, a craft knife and paper glue are the only tools you'll need.
