Chomps are a desktop toy made from folded paper and a little glue.
This contains an overview page, the top of the Chomp, and the bottom of the Chomp. Download it here
Print the top and bottom onto cardstock. The thicker paper helps with the durability of the toy.
Carefully cut around the outside of the Chomp pattern. It's easier with an Exacto, but scissors work. Be patient!
Gently score along the dashed lines with pen cap. This helps to create crisper folds. You should now be able to fold these easily.
Put glue on Tab A. Glue side A to Tab A. Hold until bond has formed, about 30 seconds.
Repeat glue for tabs B, C, D, E, and F. Don’t do G and H yet!
Take the finished head and slide it into the unglued side of the bottom. Be sure the colors of the teeth match up.
Repeat Step 3 on tabs G and H. This is the trickiest part, as there is little room between the top and the sides.
Rubber cement is pretty hardy, but give it 5 minutes to set. Make sure the top part of the Chomp is touching the sides of the bottom.
That's it! Feel free to move you Chomp around. They are great on your desk, especially since they're the perfect size to fit a business card!

I do not own Best-Test Rubber Cement, but it's awesome.
