This is supposed to be a Koala Bear head, but it looks more like a dog's head. I re-did the ears several times trying to make them look better, but eventually had to settle for this since the paper was starting to get stressed. I added the face which was on the card in an attempt to make it look more bear-like. I'm not convinced. The paper makes it seem like this one is going bald too. It had a light spot in the middle that ended up on the top of the head.

This is model is called the "Emergency Tie". I like it. I had a bit of trouble with the folds in the middle for a couple minutes, but eventually got it to work correctly. It is a bit small to wear, but looks fun. I gave it to a co-worker who always wears a tie. I hope they like it.

This is the second half of the mouse which adds the body to the previous mouse head. I added two eyes to the head after putting it on the body. It seemed to work better. I still feel like the head is a bit big for the body, but overall it works. It reminds me of the cat from earlier in the year.
