Free Canon Paper Art (dinosaurs, animals, buildings, etc., from paper)

This is OUTSTANDING.

Free print-outs to make paper models, as well as origami print-outs.

All with instructions.

You don't need a Canon printer, just any printer, print out the pdf, fold along the lines, and voila, a mega-cool paper model.

Will keep you/the kids busy for HOURS.

Note: link updated to main Canon Creative Park site. Other content on the Creative Park site is: greetings cards (http://cp.c-ij.com/english/greetings/index.html), scrapbooks (http://cp.c-ij.com/english/scrapbook/index.html), 3d decoupage (http://cp.c-ij.com/english/art/index.html), and calendars (http://cp.c-ij.com/english/calendar/2008/index.html)

In order to make the 3d art, the recommended paper is matte 170g paper (you need paper that is somewhat stiff).

For the origami, you just need plain paper (recommended weight 90g).

You will need your printer, paper, scissors, and for the 3d art, glue.

look cool, only negative being I can't fathom the cost of the ink for those things to use proper ink, probably best to avoid printing at high quality or you may find you no longer have any ink left...

Looks a bit complicated for me, let alone the kids... ;-) might give it a go though, thanks! :thumbsup:

Print it on printer at work if possible :thumbsup:
Ink actually is probably not too bad, you don't need to print the instructions, so there's not actually that much solid ink.

It's much less ink than printing a photo.

I'm cancelling the Christmas presents. Me and my Dad and my son will just spend all of Christmas assembling these. Will keep us busy for hours. :santa:

Can anyone who does one post a photo in here.

Would love to see the amateur efforts. I think the ones on the Canon website are all done by professional paper guru Japanese guy.

on the right hand side of page. click on links there to get a few pages for the cutout + a guide on how to assemble.

thankyou! thankyou!

Brilliant :thumbsup: - how the heck can this only be 44 degrees?? its free - its fun - it'll cost a few pennies to print off and surely will be fun to make with the kids - even if it looks like a screwed up piece of paper when youve finished it doesnt matter if you've had fun with the kids- does it??? theres no pleasing some folk!!! thanks for posting this :-D - I for one think its great!!!

the world champoinships of this art were on sky last night ..........i never got to watch it because it was "paper view"....

:thumbsup: Nice find Thanks

Very good :-D

Brilliant find. I love making those things! Thanks. Heat and rep added.

Nice find, pity it doesn't give an estimate on the time or skill required. Hats off to anyone doing the Airbus A320. 20 pages of fiddly cutting, folding and glueing. Buy an actual plastic model of the A320 on eBay £3.50!

I guess I picked the right day to have a stack of 120gsm paper delivered...

Hotted!

Reminds me of ]this :thumbsup:

That's the only problem with the site. THe instructions are superb, they even tell you in the Labrador Retriever instructions about the temperament and characteristics of a real Labrador.

But, nowhere, nowhere, do they tell you the recommended kind of paper to use.

I'm guessing most of it is actually best done on card. The origami obviously being the exception, but things like this star box

canon-europe.com/pap…asp

just won't work as a box, if made out of 80g paper.

Thanks for posting, unfortunately my printer is nt compatible with Vista, so I can print this out. But my kids would have loved it.

What does it matter what amount of ink it uses. It would cost you more if you bought it at the shops in a box (than a wee drop ink).

Cheers

hahaha, i like it canon, good move, give people really ink-heavy "freebies" to print so they get through their cartridges quicker

oh well, it is free

Hmm, never mind, found the main site (which has more content):

cp.c-ij.com/eng…tml

You should use 170g paper (card):

This site is fantastic!!! I've downloaded about 100 now...just printing one off to have a go. I'm a primary school teacher and these would be great especially the Science section!

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

The easy models are good:

Only one sheet required, and no gluing.

Definitely worth getting hold of some card to print it out on though.

Santa's house is a little less practical, 37 pages, probably cost about £2 in ink and paper:
cp.c-ij.com/eng…pdf

Doesn't look too hard to put together, just lots of printing cutting out. Good fun though! :santa: :thumbsup:

I did the panda - it took me about an hour! He looks good though - i have a pic of it but not a clue how to get it on here! (I can see that you can add image but have to enter the URL of your image??!)

I did it on 120gsm paper and it worked really well with that. :-D

[SIZE=2]Thanks for the link, time to get the scissors and glue out :-)[/SIZE]

You can go to ]http//ww…om/ to upload the pic and then paste the code here :thumbsup:

Great find. Heat given!
