About This Project

The Microbots are part of the Advanced Series of paper toys. Designed as a reward for supporters, the paper toy series features advanced paper toy techniques that may prove too complicated or outlandish for general consumers. The aim is to impress and inspire fellow paper toy designs and experiment with unusual building techniques, all whilst creating a stunning built model. The Microbots buck the trend for the Advanced Series by focusing on extremely simple designs that feature numerous characters on a single page.

How To Build

1 – Download
Click the download button above to receive a .zip folder, inside this you will find the flat template of the paper toy along with a reference photo. Selected Fold Up Toys also include blank versions of the template. Open the flat template in your image viewer/editor of choice and print.

2- Print
Print the model onto paper or card, Fold Up Toys recommends a 250gsm card stock for best results, however all models on the Fold Up Toys website should work perfectly well on standard A4 printer paper. On the bottom of the flat template you will see a recommended card stock weight (e.g. 2050gsm) for this models specific design.

3 – Cut
Cut the model out along the solid outline, some models will have sections that need to be cut with a craft knife, younger builders are recommended to get help from an adult.

4 – Fold
Follow the key on the models flat template, folding up or down along the dotted lines as instructed. Some model builders like to score along the fold lines (go over the lines in advance) with a craft knife or empty ball point pen to get a more precise fold.

5 – Glue
Most models have numbered tabs, glue the tabs in order to complete the model. If you get stuck, feel free to message the designer using the contact page with a photo of what you’re working on and they’ll be happy to help you.

Share your creation on social media, it’s always fun to see Fold Up Toys out in the wild.
