Print on your own A4/US Letter paper, then cut, fold and put it together using scissors and white glue.


After several hours, tadaaaaaaaaaa! You get two *big* hands shaping a heart that you will be so proud of!

When they are finished, hang them on the wall using two mere pins (see picture#4).


********************
LEVEL
Easier to make than you think, but requires patience (10 to 12 hours on average. Build it over several days while half-watching the evening show, for example)

Simple to understand: Each part is numbered to make the sequence intuitive (odd-numbered parts: right hand, even-numbered parts: left hand). No headache in sight.


********************
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- printer
- 14 sheets of thick paper (160-210 gsm / 110 lbs). This template is compatible with both A4 and Letter formats.
- cutting tool
- scoring tool
- ruler
- white glue
- two pins


********************
IF YOU ARE A BEGINNER
This is a great model to start papercraft with.

After you downloaded:
- print on your own paper at 100%
- cut out the parts
- score and fold along the dotted lines, as explained in the instructions
- then glue the numbered twin edges together.

The angles magically take shape, as you will see!

This model has been tested (and approved) by beginners, among them two 12-year-olds. Just read the tips and tricks enclosed and follow the illustrated instructions if you need guidance (but you are likely to be able to do without, really).

No doubt you will do a great job.


********************
IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCED
Challenge yourself by scaling down to 75% instead of 100%!

FAQs

Surprisingly, yes. Those sculptures may look impressive, but they are designed with *motivated* beginners in mind and have been tested by true beginners. The process of assembly has been made intuitive to relax your brain so that you won't have to figure out what step you should take next. The enclosed illustrated instructions make things even easier as they suggest where to start to glue each piece. That said, I wouldn't recomment the shark as debut model because the 3D teeth are tricky.

I would rather say adults and teens above 13, just to be safe.

■ Printer or your local print shop ■ A4 Paper (160-220 gsm) or US Letter (65 lb cover or 110 lb index like this one for example: https://www.amazon.com/Neenah-Astrobrights-Premium-Assortment-Inches/dp/B003A2I6T2) ■ Cutting tool ■ Scoring tool (the dull side of a craft knife, dried out ball pen, etc.) ■ Ruler ■ White glue ■ Pin or nail ■ And obviously, a wall.

■■■ PAPER Coloured or patterned A4 (160-220 g/m²) or US Letter American friends, this kind of cardstock is fine (this is *not* an affiliate link): https://www.amazon.com/Neenah-Astrobrights-Premium-Assortment-Inches/dp/B003A2I6T2 ■■■ GLUE Quick drying white glue! (mundane quick drying wood glue, or Aileen's, or Elmer's, or Mod Podge, an so on). I wouldn't recommend: glue sticks nor transparent liquid glues. Don't worry, all these recommendations are reminded in the instructions along with extra advice on how to glue properly.

Go to your local copy store with a thumb drive. They usually have a wide range of paper colours, and if you are lucky, various weights. They will print your template for you for next to nothing. Ask 180 gsm (65 lb cover) in priority, then 160 gsm (110 lb index) if they don't have 180. (The tutorial is to be printed on regular office paper, or not to be printed at all)

In this shop, you will find PDF patterns you can turn into paper sculptures. Nothing physical will be sent to you. You can download your files directly from your Etsy account a few seconds after your purchase. Here is how you can make your own paper sculpture: - - - Download & print the template (using A4 or US Letter thick paper) - - - Read through the getting started tips - - - Have a glance at the illustrated instructions Then start building: - - - Following the pattern, cut out each individual part - - - Score and fold along the dotted lines - - - Pair up the twin numbers to glue the pieces together After it's finished: - - - Hang on the wall using pins or nails, just like a picture frame - - - Be proud and do the happy dance :)

I do, as long as none of the files have been downloaded.

No, that's ok to download them multiple times. I'm just asking you not to share or publish the files though, and not to use them for profit of any kind. Don't mess with the copyright law.

Yes and no. You are allowed to sell the sculptures to make room for example. The point here is you can not make a business out of my work. Thank you.
