Paper Dioramas that you can print

A paper diorama can be quite fun and attractive. Not to mention it is easy to make. You only need a few supplies! Here I have a whole lot of paper dioramas you can print up. They are all totally free and almost all of them include everything you need.

Here are my paper dioramas that you are free to download, print up and make. They cover a variety of subjects and themes including lord of the rings, fairy tales and more. Typically, for these paper dioramas all you need is a pair of scissors and some kind of glue. Glue stick is also quite acceptable.

Make a chamber of wonders paper diorama

A chamber of wonders was a 17th century Flemish thing. People would collect up wonders from around the world and display them. I visited one, and have pictures and a video. And, turned it into a paper diorama project. You can download it, print it, and make it here: Make a Chamber of Wonders


Make an 18th century diorama also known as a paper theater

In the Eighteenth century this type of layered diorama was all the rage. It is composed of six layers to give the perception of depth. I spotted one in a museum and decided to make one. But... rather than making the scene of an 18th century garden I decided to use photographs from my travels to make the Biltmore gardens from the famous Biltmore Castle.
