This diamond project is a good paper folding for beginners and hobbyists.

What you should need?

First print the 2 pages of the original creation with your favorite paper and your home printer. Black and white printer will be great.

Cut

Now by using a cutter or scissor, just cut the 2 pieces of the craft model by following the outline lines. It should look like a star split in two pieces.

 

Fold

Fold all pieces

After the cut you have to fold all the parts according the fold lines. This 3D paper toy template is very particular because there is only one direction of folding for all the lines: a valley fold.
To know more about valley fold technic look at the following video tutorial also available on my YouTube channel.

Gluing

For my craft models I use to apply a double sided tape for assembling the parts each other. But you can use a standard glue if you don’t have it.
Here is a video showing how I apply double sided tape on parts.

Assemble the diamond

Paint

Now it’s time to paint your diamond shape with color of your choice. To give a modern and luxurious style I decided to use a silver and gold effect paintbrush. It gives amazing papercraft models to exhibit for your home decor.

It’s your turn and I hope you will enjoy assembling this little paper sculpture.
