Pop-Up Castle Templates and Samples

Print castle template on 8.5" X 11" card stock and fold in halves twice, so that the castle wall pattern ends up inside the folded card. With sharp scissors cut one or two pop-up tabs to add additional decorative elements or standing characters to your castle diorama.
Selection of characters and decorative elements for coloring, cutting, and pasting to your castle backgrounds. I would recommend using colored pencils or fine point markers for coloring such small elements. I used doubled side Scotch tape for ease of use and clean handling, but a glue stick or glue bottle might provide a stronger bond so long as you are careful.
Sample pop-up castle cards. Here is the front view of the same grouping. This is the top view and the 3/4 view of the most heavily decorated castle. This is the close up view of the Dragon and Knight castle. And finally a castle inspired by Harry Potter.Put together this finished sample with some Faber Castell Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils and some double sided tape. Crayola fine tip markers are also a good choice for coloring the character cut outs.
