This is a downloadable PDF pattern that you will soon be turning into real 3D paper unicorn using scissors & glue.

Get lost in the magic of her imagination with an ethereal unicorn which seems to leap out of the wall.
Make this low poly running unicorn together - on a rainy weekend, during the school holidays, or for her birthday party.

And once youโ€™re done, hang it in her bedroom, showcase it for her birthday, and delight at your creative genius!
(Or if youโ€™re an inventive adult who wants the unicorn for themselves โ€“ this oneโ€™s for you too!)

It is a perfect activity for those โ€˜craftyโ€™ weekends when the mood is light and music is humming in the background.

This majestic unicorn, always imitated, never equaled, will bring that big smile on her face and leave her friends jealous. By the way, they are likely to ask you to make one for them too :)

Beginner friendly, provided that you are patient and motivated. Being meticulous is definitely a plus for better results.

Adults and teens 12+ enjoying crafts, especially paper crafts.

People who need a way to alleviate stress and intrusive thoughts.

The process is very simple to understand: Each part is numbered in sequential order. No headache in sight, my goal being to make you feel relaxed.

Team up with your teen and divide up tasks if you feel more like it!

You will receive the files by email a few seconds after your order is processed.

In addition, your Etsy account will give you lifetime access to the files.

I HIGHLY recommend for you to create an Etsy account, especially if you intend to pay via Paypal (because Paypal won't send the download links, only Etsy will...)

If you decide to check out as a guest anyway, the files will be downloadable only from your email (check out your spam folder(s) too) for a limited number of weeks.

After you download and unzip the files:
- print on your own A4/Letter sheets at 100% (scroll down to read my recommendations on the kind of paper to choose)
- score and fold along the dotted lines, as explained in the instructions
- cut out the parts
- then glue the numbered twin edges together.
- after it's finished, hang your masterpiece to the wall using 3 mere push pins/thumbtacks

The process is very simple to understand: Each part is numbered in sequential order. No headache in sight, my goal being to make you feel relaxed.

As this unicorn leaping out of the wall is one of my signature projects, it has been made by a countless number of teens and adults from all around the world.

No doubt you will do a great job too!

You can also print on A3 and scale it up to 141%, but this will be more difficult to make!

A4 / Letter size in 160-210 gsm / 65 lbs cover

You can use either white cardstock and spray paint it, or coloured/patterned cardstock. I recommend against metallic paper, which takes longer to dry.

For all my prototypes, I personally use Iris Vivaldiยฎ by Cansonยฎ in 185 gsm, which comes in 50-sheet reams. They have 30 colours to choose from.
Brands like Recollectionsยฎ, Astrobrightsยฎ, Clairefontaineยฎ, to name a few, are also good options.

You can also go creative with patterned paper provided that it is thick enough.

For a cheaper alternative, go for Bristol paper, but it usually comes in white. You may then need to use spray paint it (in bronze, gold, silver, etc.), which is good for concealing potential glue smears.

Any wood glue or any craft glue will do.
Fast drying one is a plus, but it is optional.

I personally pour some wood glue into a metallic lid. Then I apply a few drops onto the tabs with a toothpick before I spread them out in a thin layer. You need very few glue!

My name is Stephane and I am a night owl who crafts paper to fight insomnia and reduce internal noise. I am based in Paris, France, but my sleep is so erratic that I am actually living in different time zones (which comes in handy to answer customers' questions from all over the world). I am both ENFP and INFP personality types, depending on the moon. I also don't eat meat nor fish by choice and I am an intermittent faster. But other than that, I feel normal.

OXYGAMI is my full-time job. I chose this name because OXYGAMI = Oxygene + Origami.

I design DIY paper sculptures for creative people who need a way to stop internal noise, at least temporarily. Building a paper sculpture switches off our brains as it requires focus. It also brings fun during the assembly and pride when the sculpture is finished. In a word: oxygene!

I try hard to design gorgeous, refined models to decorate your walls. And I try as hard to make the assembly as intuitive as possible, so that you can successfully make your own even if you never did anything with your hands.

These sculptures require time but they are so rewarding in the end! They attract compliments like magnets.

I enlarge the unicorn by 145% and photocopied it onto 11 x 17 paper for a Kentucky derby gala for a nonprofit organization. Everybody loved it!! I bought the unicorn by mistake so I took off the horn. Easy to put together. I made three and hung them from easels with a tablecloth draped over.

The pattern and instructions were very intuitive. I did end up reconfiguring the template pieces so I could reduce the number of pieces of cardboard needed (from 24 pages down to 14 for the main color). Love this design!

The amount of detail put into this pattern is amazing! I was a bit hesitant to buy at first because of the higher price and the fact that I was new to paper crafting but this was well worth every penny. I was amazed at how easy to follow this pattern was and the results are SPECTACULAR! I get so many compliments on this unicorn! Stรฉphane was great at answering any questions I had very quickly and was amazingly supportive. The Facebook community that you get access to is also amazing and is very helpful every step of the way. I am very pleased with this purchase and I will definitely be purchasing more in the near future.
