PTI - Christmas Paper Toy Craft Decoration - Gingerbread Guy Image - Front
Minimal Texture
Easy to Build

About This Project

This model is part of a set of three Christmas themed designs originally created in 2015 which were re-mastered and released in 2016 with fresh graphics and tabs. The set included a penguin, a gingerbread man and a snowman. All of the models were designed to be simple and easy to build and their textures focused on minimal and clean layouts.

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.
