3D Penguin and Teddy Bear (Cannon)

I needed to get more A4 photo paper so ventured to warehouse stationery on the weekend... The HP paper I usually buy was expensive so I looked at other paper and found Cannon Matt photo paper for the same price but 30 more sheets! I don't usually print on Matt but was very pleased with the photo's I tried and how they look albeit different from glossy.

Anyway, on the pack of the cannon matt paper it had a website referring to papercraft so I checked it out and found loads of templates to make 3D items. You print them onto photo paper, cut them out, glue and fit together...

I love penguins so tried that first and really please with how it looks, thinking that was fun, I thought I would try another so printed the bear but have to say it took me ages to make this one as had more intricate pieces.... was so worth it by the time I finished tonight though! Would you believe the legs, arms and head are all moveable!!!!

They are quite large too being about 20-25cm high.

  1. Do you find Warehouse Stationery good for other arts & crafts products?

  2. These are so amazing, fancy making them out of paper craft after they have been printed. The bear looks so real in the photo and looks like it has fur..... so cool and really something so different.

  3. how do u make it!!!!!
