Download our Free Toucan Template Here

You Will Need:

- Free Printable Template

- First Edition Foliage Dies Set

- Dovecraft A4 Coloured Card

How to Make:

1. Begin by downloading our free toucan template. Starting with the body, cut out and draw around each section onto your chosen A4 Dovecraft card.

TRIMCRAFT TIP: Number your sections so they don’t get mixed up.


2. Once your segments are ready, layer them one on top of the other using 3D foam squares. Start with segment 1 and work your way up to the smallest piece (8) to create the body. Repeat this layering technique with the beak section, using pieces (1-4)


3. Repeat this with the eye section of the toucan (pieces 8-12) with your chosen Dovecraft coloured card.


4. Use Dovecraft Perma Fix tape to secure all of your toucan decoupage pieces. You can then style your toucan whatever way you like!

5. Die cut leaves from the First Edition Foliage dies set and placed them behind a circular green card aperture. She has then layered it onto a blank canvas, adhered the toucan and cut out a brown branch to place on top!


This decoupage technique really brings this vibrant toucan to life! You could make this template smaller so you could pair this big toucan with a baby toucan (nawh) or perhaps to fit a small project like a card!
