You know the days... It actually starts right when the pumpkins get put outside! Time for the squirrels to get their fill and get big enough to last during the freezing winter months. Halloween contributes to the survival of our beloved Canadian squirrels!
To ease off our Halloween buzz, here is a fun post-craft celebration activity, free for all you little ghouls, witches and monsters! We need to keep our hands busy so we don't eat al our candies at once.
I want to give you joy!!
Remember last year we offered a santa hat box? (scroll to find the free pattern!) Well this year we want to offer you this free Giant (24 inches tall) Candy Cane 3D Papercraft! It just feels right...I think we all need the bright and whimsical colors around. Enjoy! If its your first time at printing the patterns, head over to our how to pages for some support. (for starters, you just need to click the image to get the pdf pattern or click here!)
Much love, Sofs
FIRST you make pink popcorn! Good start yes?! I used a recipe I found online here. You may need to try it a few times before you get the right texture or the right color.
pssst you can also make it other colors for any other fun occasion.
SECOND make a hippo! That’s the best part in my opinion ( of course!) You can purchase the kit which will sent to you or you can also purchase the digital download template.
The template makes a BIG hippo ( 36 inches long) but you can also print it on a smaller scale to make samller ones (make sure to reduce eac page to the same %). Use the size that fits your need. I used the large one for the photo but how cool would it be to make a few of the mid size ones.
NOW you pretty much got all you need to surprise your loved ones! You can add a few cute drinks and a few balloons if you want. Either way, I think that you are sure to make this party memorable. Take some pictures and wow your social media friends!! we want to see too, find us on instagram @sofsdesigns

If you are new to the wonderful world of papercrafting, I made a little video!
We sometimes promote the facts that our paper kits are ecofriendly and a great crfat all around since once done all of our models can be recycled. We probably don't mention that enough but in any case we also are working on a new recycable packaging which will be even more more ecofriendly then our regular concept. Not only did we want to remove the plastic usage of our kits by using paper but we also wanted to use recylced fibers and 'locally-ish' sourced products. We have researched and found these 100% recycled enveloppes made in North America.
Now can someone guess what the geometric shapes on each packages represent? Hint hint, I grew up on the ski hills?? We will implement the new packaging gradually. First it will come with our new line of super easy and friendly DIY papercrafts. The first one of of the line is this super cute and useful organizing containers that are kraft color on one side and fun summer colors on the other.
Si vous êtes tout nouveau dans le monde du papercraft 3d, ces patrons seront surement vous plaire! attention, ils ne sont pas seulement pour les débutants, vous pourrez faire des déco génial même avec des modèles super simple.
If you are new to the world of papercraft these patterns will sure to please. Not just for begginers though! You can make very beautiful home decoration with simple models, don't you think!
