Tiny Toys - Robot and Butterfly

Half-Bot and Butterfly are two free toys I designed to help promote my upcoming "Let's Make Paper Toys" workshop at the Durham Arts Council in Durham, NC.

These simple half-page toys are easy to put together, yet still have fun pose-ability for their size. If you find a flyer in the wild, nestled inside is a half-sheet of pre-cut/perforated, color card stock stuffed with parts to pop out. The instructions are inside the flyer. I left the parts blank so that they can be decorated - being creative is a big theme in the workshop!

Do you want a printable version of these toys right now? Click "Read More" below to download your own PDF of these patterns and to get the illustrated step-by-step instructions.

Print out the below PDF on thick cardstock, 65 lb or heavier. Letter or A4 paper sizes!

There will be a lot of cutting involved! I recommend using a 5/8" circle hole punch to remove all of the holes. Using a craft knife is perfectly fine as well. Dashed lines should be scored with an embossing tool or some other dull, round-edged tool.

Share your images of decorated Half-bots or Butterflies and I will include them in a gallery post! If I receive images of 3 or more robots or butterflies, I will share a special downloadable Poplock surprise with everybody!
