Star Wars Day Crafts: Princess Leia Papercraft

Princess Leia papercraft

Does your May the 4th party need more Leia? Check out’s easy guide to creating the perfect princess papercraft!


  1. Print the template on regular paper or cardstock. Cut out each piece with a craft knife or scissors. Do not cut along the dashed lines — this is where you will fold the paper.
  2. Line up Leia’s back with her TORSO and glue them together so the design is two-sided. After the glue has dried, fold the bottom part of Leia’s TORSO towards you along the blue dashed line. Then, fold Leia’s face away from you along the gold line across her shoulders.
  3. Take Leia’s FRONT piece and fold along each dashed line. Make each fold away from you. Glue the G tab and F tab to the back, white side of Leia’s FRONT.
  4. Spread glue on the H tab of Leia’s FRONT and press it into place on the H area on Leia’s TORSO. Make sure her shoulders are lined up correctly.
  5. After the glue dries, add glue to the I, J, K, and L tabs and press them into place. Hold the pieces together until the glue dries. You may need to use a pen or pencil inside the FRONT area to position the tabs just right.
  6. Fold each of Leia’s arms and glue them so the design is two-sided. Make sure they are lined up before the glue dries. Attach the arms to each side of Leia’s TORSO under each shoulder by gluing the E tab to the E area and D tab to the D area.
  7. With the printed side of the SKIRT facing you, glue tab A to the back of the skirt taking care to line up the edge of the skirt along the dotted line.
  8. Attach Leia’s completed TORSO to her SKIRT by gluing the white side of the tabs at her waist to the top of the SKIRT over the areas labeled M and N. The crease on the SKIRT should be in the back.
