Item details

Digital download (1 ZIP)

Make your own papercraft running man (or kid) with our printable PDF pattern! Just follow the instructions & you will be proud of your paper statue which gets out of the wall. Isn’t it an original wall mount for your sweet home or even a gift for a sport lover?
This model comes in two sizes: A3 pattern for an adult size sculpture and A4 pattern for a child size sculpture.
Don’t be afraid, I assembled the sculpture so everybody can do it! You will just need time & precision. Put your music on & enjoy the assemblage! (For me it is a perfect way to relax).

«««««« HOW DOES IT WORK? »»»»»»

► Once purchased, download the ZIP file with the pattern (PDF files to be printed with A4 or A3 sheets – Letter or Tabloid in the States) & the complete instructions in English to make the sculpture.
► Print the template (don’t forget that the size of the sculpture isn’t the same with A3 or A4 pattern). The paper has to be thick (200 / 300 gsm / grams per square meters). The one I use is 270 gsm & it is perfect for that kind of sculpture. You can print at home if you have a printer or, easier, go to the nearest Print shop, you could buy the paper & print there.
► You have the printed pattern! Now just check you have the following tools: a pair of scissors, a ruler, white paper glue and a tool to fold the paper (could be a scoring tool / cutter pencil or even a small knife). You are ready to begin!
► Now just follow the instructions: cut the parts, fold & glue them. It is easy, all the parts of the pattern are identified with edge number guide for easy assembly (to assemble the papercraft model just match the numbers on the edges with the corresponding number & glue the edges together).
► Once finished, you can personalized the sculpture according to your taste. The customization options are infinite! You can color each face with felt-tip pens to make it multi-colors (I did it for several models). Or, you can paint it to make it stronger & easier to be cleaned. With an oil paint or even spray paint, it will look like laminated & your friends won’t believe you made it with paper!

Our items are only digital files (PDF format) that you could download on Etsy as soon as your payment will be done. One of the files is the tutorial with the instructions (it doesn’t need to be print - if you want to print it, you can do it on a normal office paper). This document explains step-by-step how to assemble the sculpture. The others files are the patterns to be print on card stock (A3 or A4 / letter or tabloid in the US).
Of course, everybody can make it. You will just need the utensils to do it but more important, you will need time, motivation, to be detail-oriented and to have patience. It is a fiddly job but it is entertaining. I personally use it to relax with music as the process of cutting, gluing and folding has become an automatism. If your child is under 12, I advise to make it with him/her. I didn’t recommend letting a child under 12 to do it by him/herself. If you never do a paper craft sculpture before, it hasn’t to stop you. Just follow the instructions and you will soon realize that it is easy.
If you still have a doubt, write to me and I will give you a free pattern to "try"!
- Good paper scissors to cut each piece of the template.
- A scoring tool (or Pen Cutter) for folding the pieces without cutting them.
- A ruler (metal ruler is better).
- A nice working space to give you motivation :-)
I recommend a paper of at least 200 gsm. I personally use an “illustration paper” of 270 gsm (grammage) & it is works perfect for that kind of sculpture. It is stronger and it will give more strength to the final sculpture. You can print on a color paper or white paper.
I personally go in a print house with an USB Pendrive, I buy the paper and print it there.
- Glue. White paper glue works perfectly for those sculptures. It dries in few sec. After gluing, you just have to press the two pieces of paper few seconds and that all!
Once the pattern bought, you will have it for you so you could make the sculpture any times you want. However, you can’t sell, share or publish the pattern or the final sculpture as it is prohibited. Your purchase should be only for you. Our creations are protected by Copyright.
Yes, before or after your purchase, you can contact me in case you need help to assemble your sculpture.
We do, as long as the pattern hasn’t been downloaded.
Of course, it is a good idea. There are three options:
• You can offer the pattern as a digital file (& even send it by email if your friend or relative doesn’t live near you).
• You can print the pattern & the instructions to make the sculpture, put it in an attractive gift envelope & offer it.
• Or even, you can assemble the sculpture yourself & offer the finished model.
