Fun School Project: Build a Paper Pyramid
In This Article
- I notice that many students come to my tetrahedral kite-building tutorial in search of how to make a pyramid out of straws and paper, so I've decided to share patterns for making a model Egyptian pyramid here.
- Paper Pyramid Pattern 1: Great-looking but small (3.8" tall) Egyptian pyramid out of paper.
By changing the length or number of straws, you can experiment with pyramid geometry. Links to other people's paper craft tutorials as well as links to several great webpages on pyramids in Egypt and elsewhere in the world.
This pattern makes a great-looking but small (3.8" tall) Egyptian pyramid out of paper. This one is easy: just print out the pattern and tape it together! Download my paper pyramid pattern and print it out four times.
Note: Tell your computer only to print the first page of the template; i.e., four copies of page one only. Sometimes, depending on the printer, a tiny strip flows onto page two, but it's not needed.
Cut out the template (cut away all the plain white paper). Don't worry if the edges aren't perfect; just don't cut off any points of the triangle.
Cut the other three faces of the pyramid in exactly the same way. Carefully fold the bottom square and side flaps back, using the dark lines of the triangle as a guide. Accurate folds are the key to making the pyramid look great.
Once you've got a fold in the right spot, gently run a fingernail along it on a flat surface to make it sharp. Next, fold the other three faces of the pyramid in exactly the same way. Use two small pieces of clear tape to join two faces of the pyramid along one edge.
The easiest method is to lay the two triangles back-to-back with the side flaps sandwiched between them, then fold the tape over the outside edge that's formed.
