Elie Carritson was hand picked by the rabbit government to take on a secret moon mission for one unfortunate reason. She was disposable. The government has sent her on a mission to collect the elusive moon germs, a secret that’s remained shielded from public knowledge for 30 years.
Elie has successfully captured her target, but now must ponder what will happen to her upon her return to earth, will she be disposed of by the government, or heralded as a hero by the public for exposing the truth. The empty surface of the moon has never felt so lonely. Elie is left with little choice as she looks back upon the very planet who will seal her fate.
The Moon Rabbit paper craft was designed as part of the Let’s Design video series on Alex’s main channel. The paper craft featured some advanced paper engineering that was painstakingly explained on the video.

Cut the model out along the solid outline, some models will have sections that need to be cut with a craft knife, younger builders are recommended to get help from an adult.

Most models have numbered tabs, glue the tabs in order to complete the model. If you get stuck, feel free to message the designer using the contact page with a photo of what you’re working on and they’ll be happy to help you.
