Crush

We’ve all had that amazing feeling of falling for someone, the butterflies in the stomach, the nervous laughter the laying awake at night that accompanies a crush, but who really has the time for all of that?  “Not on my watch, Cupid!” I scream as I stomp that smug little cherub beneath my boot, I’ve got more important things to do like make spreadsheets and die alone.

This paper craft consists of a boot made of a single piece and some flat cut outs to place around the finish the scene.

Print
Print the template file using your home printer. Most of the designs on Fold Up Toys are designed to work best with 200gsm A4 cardstock, as it’s cheaply available, however the designs should still work with standard printer paper if none is available.
Score Folds (optional)
Using empty ball point pen, bone folder or craft knife, lightly press along the fold lines of the template, with enough force to score the page without cutting all the way through. This will make it easier to fold the page where needed without creasing the page and give a cleaner, more accurate edge. If you are a younger builder, please seek adult supervision.
Cut
Carefully cut out the template along the solid cut lines, some cut lines will shift between two colours to better contrast the texture of the model, be sure to look for smaller cut lines within the model that may require a craft knife. If you are a younger builder, please seek adult supervision.
Fold
Following the folding key found on the bottom of the page, fold along the dotted lines, being sure to fold hill folds downwards and valley folds upwards.
Glue
Carefully glue the tabs, most Fold Up Toy templates use numbered tabs to help show the recommended order that tabs should be glued down in. It’s recommended to use a small amount of PVA glue applied with a small paint brush, apply the glue to the tabs in small, thin layers so that when the tab is pressed down, the glue does not get squeezed out and stain the rest of the model.
