Creating this 3D airplane is as easy as it gets! It takes less than 5 minutes to cut and assemble since there is no glue or teeny tiny pieces involved. I even used printable silver foil to give it that shiny airplane look.
What you’ll need:
- Silhouette CAMEO®, Portrait®, or Curio™
- printable silver foil
Ungroup the design and move the red shapes to the side. Cut the three tan shapes out of chipboard.
Change your paper size to letter to fit the printable silver foil. Move the tan shapes off to the side and place the red shapes on your workspace. You’ll need to flip one of the shapes that goes on the side of the plane so it fits correctly. Cut these out of printable silver foil.
Peel off the foil shapes and stick them on the corresponding chipboard shapes.
Assembling the airplane couldn’t be easier. Just slide the pieces in place with the silver foil facing up.
Since it’s made of chipboard, the airplane is sturdy enough for most kids preschool age and older to play with.

Right?! I think next time I’ll use white cardstock or sticker paper so that my little guy can decorate it himself.

This is such a great tutorial – I love the silver on it, too. My son is super into astronauts right now, so I think this could work for that, too.
