Yo ho, yo ho, a pirates 3D paper craft for all. Last week, the Disney Parks Blog offered up some suggestions celebrate the pirate life at home. In the article, there was link to a downloadable 3D paper craft featuring Mickey, Minnie, and Donald in pirate attire with a treasure check background.
To get started, click here to download the 3D paper craft template and instructions. I used some heaver card stock we had tucked away in the closet. I’d recommend heavier paper to give the finished product a little more shelf life.
Now that you have the pages printed, it is time cut them out. I used an x-acto knife, but this is not necessary – scissors will work too. Just be careful with this step.
The Donald page includes assembly instructions with the most important instruction is to glue the components in alphabetical order. During craft time on the ships, there have been glue dots available along with glue sticks. Glue Dots are worth it. Not only do they make less of a mess vs traditional glue, they make assembly so much easier. I found this them to be a life saver in a few spots when the glue would not hold parts together.
Now it is time to have some fun with the swashbuckling pirates.
