06 - Inflatabales - Putting Together a Paper Test

Before you leap to plastic sheeting, it's important to do a small test of your unfolded model.  This will help you figure out the best way to approach putting it together, and will also alert you to any problems with the unfolding.

In my example, I did it on regular letter size laser printer paper and used good old scotch tape.  But if you're a big coffee drinker (or otherwise jittery-handed person like myself), it's not a bad idea to print it larger.  Also, some brands of glue sticks set very quickly and might work, but you don't want to use any kind that allows any sort of "repositioning".
