2012: Year of the dragon (and a freebie)

Happy lunar new year!

2012 is the year of the dragon and so I thought I’d make a little paper toy dragon freebie. I got carried away a little and so I now made 4 free printable paper dragon templates, each in a different color. I hope you like playing with these little fortune fellows. Begone you evil spirits!

P.S. if you like this paper toy, I would appreciate a little donation. Thank you!

Frohes Mond-Neujahr!

2012 ist das Jahr des Drache und da dachte ich, ich entwerfe mal einen kleinen Papier-Drachen zum selber bauen (und spielen). Ich habe vor lauter Eifer  gleich 4 verschiedene Drachen-Vorlagen in unterschiedlichen Farben gemacht. Ich hoffe, die kleinen Glücksbringer gefallen euch. Hinfort mit euch, ihr bösen Geister!

P.S. Wenn Euch der Drache gefällt, freue ich mich auch über eine kleine Spende (über den ‘Donate’ Button oben). Vielen Dank!

Download PDFs (4 pages each):

(edit: I have noticed that somehow the preview of the white dragon is shown as the red one on some computers, but it will be fine when you open it! I have no idea how to fix it, re-saving the pdf won’t change it. Sorry, don’t get irritated)

edit 2: If you make one of the dragons, or maybe even several of them, I would love to see some pictures!

Die Anleitung gibt es erst mal nur auf Englisch, solange keiner nach einer deutschen Version schreit! ; )

    Is it possible to add a dragon with no color? Just the outlines? My son is doing a school project and his dragon needs to be specific colors. This is such a clever idea! I love it.
