The major sporting event of 2019 is nearly upon us, with the Rugby World Cup 2019™ kicking off in Japan on 20 September. Canon is sponsoring the tournament,* which seems to deliver more drama and excitement every time.
With all 48 games being held in a country famous for origami, the art of paper folding, Canon's Creative Park has some fun ideas for you to get into the spirit of the competition, whether you'll be watching it live in Japan or getting up early at home to see the games on TV. Simply download the templates, print them off and get folding before your team's national anthem is belted out on match day.
The detailed templates all have clear instructions on how to assemble them, so you'll just need the following (and a bit of care when using sharp objects):
• A printer – find out which one is right for you
• Scissors, utility knife
• Glue stick and wood glue
• Ruler or set square
• Object with pointed tip
It wouldn't be a sporting event without a mascot, and Japan is famous for its array of cuddly creatures. The Rugby World Cup 2019™ has Ren and G cheering along all the teams with their fans. It's easy to assemble both, so it's just a case of whether you go for rugged white-haired flanker Ren or flashy red-haired winger G.
