3d Paper Plane
First Cut

3d Paper Plane

I probably say this all the time but I absolutely love using my Silhouette CAMEO to create 3D projects and I’m super excited about this project today!

My youngest child was helping me choose designs and when he saw this he really wanted me to make him one.  I was up for the challenge!!!


It was so much fun!! Yes, it takes some time to put things together but it’s so worth it in the end.

My son’s favourite colour is yellow so it was easy to decide on the colours.  I used card stock to keep the plane sturdy and have shape.

For the propeller I used some Printable Silver Foil – cut the image twice. I then cut out the image again from Silhouette Chipboard.  I adhered the foil to the chipboard and then attached the propellor to the nose of the plane using a brad.

Cari Locken

HI there! I’m Cari Locken from Langley, BC, Canada. I’m a wife and mother of 3 amazing kids! I have been crafting since I was a child and love the creative outlet that this hobby brings to me. My formal training is in the area of music as I have a Masters degree in Music and I am currently teaching Band (to Grades 5, 6 & &) as well as private piano lessons. However I always find time to dig out my scrappy supplies and work on a few projects here & there. I love creating scrapbook layouts, preserving the everyday moments and special memories of our family life as well as creating cards & home decor items . Other than scrapbooking I enjoy spending time watching my children play sports, reading, knitting, photography and cooking. I’m thrilled to be a part of the Silhouette Team!
