I used to love making 3D nets at school (it’s the only bit of maths I actually enjoyed).
I’ve been thinking for a long time they would look great with faces on.
You can make a garland or mobile with them. You can sit a few on your desk to keep you company. Or you can pile them high…totem style!
The lion is my favorite!

1. Print out the your character (pdf’s at bottom of post). Set your printing preferences to ‘photo’ and ‘grayscale’. Cut around the outside of your character.
2. Score along the dotted lines using a ruler and pointy object (such as compass or needle). Fold along each of these lines.
3. Glue your model together flap by flap. I use ‘bostick glue and fix’ for all my paper projects nowadays. Its a bit smelly and can come out of the tube very quickly so not recommended for kids. If kids are making these models then a standard glue stick will do the job well.
4. Print out the eyes, cut out and glue onto your model.
