3D Paper Toy Patterns

NOTICE: Our office will be CLOSED October 22-29, 2014. All orders placed during that time will be processed beginning on the 30th. Thank you for your patience!

You may have noticed from my crochet pattern page, GF Design blog, or my IDMommy blog, that I often use my design skills to make fun stuff for my kids! Here you'll find my paper toy patterns. Breaking down 3-dimensional objects into flat patterns is something that I do naturally in my day to day retail fixture design work. Usually I'll start by sketching my concepts in 3 dimensions, but when it comes time to create drawings for the manufacturer, basically what I do is break it down into buildable components. That's what I've done here...in a much simpler form of course!

At least for now, these paper patterns are totally FREE for you to download! If you and your kids have fun with these or have any feedback, I'd love to hear from you! Let me know how it goes and I'd even love to post photos of you with your finished projects too!

Looking for someone to design a custom 3D paper project pattern for your own personal or business marketing needs? Shoot me an email and we'll talk!
