Papercraft alphabet


P1350653Update: The alphabet is now available as a beautifully printed book. It makes a nice gift for preschool kids and students starting to read and write.

This is the official announcement for the papercraft alphabet I just finished uploading. That was quite some work, especially with two hyperactive kids climbing all over me while I am typing. By the way, if you speak German: Hätte auch auf Deutsch funktioniert.

Anyway, the alphabet is now complete – a collection of 26 papercraft templates for all letters 0f the alphabet, each representing an animal, thing, or people starting with that letter:


You will find the complete list of templates here. You can use them for education, as toys, or to spell out whatever message you want to get across. Here is a tutorial on how to make the letters.

Here is a ZIP file containing all templates as PDFs.

Have fun with these – and if you do, I wouldn’t mind if you help to spread the word…

Edit: I have just uploaded numbers to go with the alphabet. They do not represent any objects, but there is a trick to them, too. Here they are.
