This article will explain how to make three-dimensional crafts with a PC program called Pepakura. The program works only on Windows. Here are some ideas: Chinese paper lanterns, life-size paper sunflower blossom, and Trapeze performers. You can also try making 3d animal figures. And don’t forget that paper crafts are great for kids too! Here are some tips to get you started! And remember to have fun!
Pepakura is a Windows Only program
If you’re thinking about making 3d paper crafts but aren’t sure where to start, Pepakura is a software that makes this process easy and quick. With this program, you can import any 3d model you’ve made into the program, and then convert it into a 2D model with a few clicks. You can also use the Pepakura Viewer to view other people’s 3d models, or export them to BMP or PDF files.
Pepakura comes with a plethora of options, including page numbers, labels, and a built-in converter. You can also add glue tabs to your models, change their textures and colours, and configure their output to a printer. Lastly, Pepakura has many features that are useful for creating 3d paper crafts, and is available for Windows and macOS.
Chinese paper lanterns
You can make Chinese paper lanterns with almost any rectangular sheet of paper, but card stock is recommended as it’s sturdier. You can use any color for the lanterns, and cut out a 1″-wide strip for the handle. Fold the paper in half and draw a line on one of the half-way points to make it look like a tube. Glue, tape, or staple the edges to secure them.
Once you’ve glued the paper together, you can embellish it however you’d like. You can use a variety of decorations, such as washi tape, ribbons, or sequins, stickers, or small buttons. It’s up to you whether you want your lantern to be decorated with real candles or a pseudo-light source. After you’ve added a little color, you can finish the lanterns with washi tape, stickers, and glitter.
Life-size paper sunflower blossom
To make a life-size paper sunflower blossom craft, you’ll first need to download free templates for the petals. These templates will make it easy to cut petals into the correct shape, such as a cone. The petals should be evenly spaced and have an overlapped area for glue. Choose a variety of colored papers for the petals and glue them onto a piece of card stock. Once all of the petals have been glued down, the next step will be to add the leaves.
Once you’ve cut out all of the paper petals, you’ll need to cut a center for each one. If you want to make a garland or hang your paper sunflower blossoms from a string, the center will provide the perfect finishing touch. If you don’t want your paper sunflowers to look like a whole, you can add leaves and butterflies to the center. This way, the petals will be even more realistic-looking.
Make 3D paper crafts of your own trapeze performers with the help of the internet. You can print these paper crafts using Adobe PDF files. All you need is a computer with a printer and some white paper. Once printed, the trapeze artist can be colored using markers or crayons. You can even pin them to a favorite Pinterest board so that you can find them later. You can even make multiple trapeze performers and hang them on different things to give them a different look.
Once you’ve printed the templates, you’re ready to start making your own trapeze act! Start by printing an acrobat template. The design should include a face and legs that extend. Then, you can glue them together to form a trapeze act. Next, use glue to attach them to a bar. You can also make a circus ring, which can be found in the Under the Big Top craft series. This craft also includes instructions for a ringmaster to accompany your trapeze artist!
