3D Camping Set – Summer Cut Files

Recently, here at Designs By Miss Mandee, we decided to explore the outdoors in style. Well, today we are going to be roughin’ it a little bit. I’ve included lots of fun pieces with this one, so pack up your supplies, and get ready for adventure with this adorable, 3D camping set.

A tent, picnic table, fire pit, trees—it’s all included in this paper craft set! And each of these pieces are really fun to put together.

3D Camping Set


How to Make It

1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the 3D camping set pieces.

Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! The hot pink lines are used to make cuts, but be sure to attach them as well. If you’re not using the SVG file that includes score lines, you can use the PDF version as a reference to know where your folds should go.


2. Start by assembling your a-frame tent. Just fold your rectangular piece in half, and attach your triangular tent flaps to the front and back using the tabs provided.

As I was doing this, I also decided to add a couple pieces of bakers twine to look like ropes. You can do this as well, if you choose.


3. Next, assemble the picnic table. To do this, start by folding the base piece along the score lines, and attaching the tabs on the benches to the opposite side.

Next, fold and assemble your tabletop and bench seats. Fold along the score lines, and attach the tabs to the inside. Then, glue the tabletop and bench pieces to the corresponding sections on the base piece.


4. Assemble the fire pit. Fold in the edges of the hexagonal fire pit, and glue the tabs to the inside.

Next, layer your yellow fire pieces on the front and back sides of your red pieces (making sure that the slits correspond with one another. Then, slide them together using the center slits.

Lastly, attach the brown hexagon to the inside of the grey fire pit, and attach the fire using the slit provided. Fold and glue the tab.


5. Form the “pyramid trees.” These trees are pretty straightforward. fold along each of the scored edges, and attach the tab to the inside.


6. Form the “layered trees.” These trees are designed so that you can add as many layers as you’d like. In my example, I do one with two layers and one with three.

The base layer has a wider opening at the bottom in order to make it easier to reach your hand inside and glue each section, but the other layers are all the same.

Fold in each of your four triangles, glue them into a pyramid shape using the tabs provided. Do this to all of your tree layers. Then, slip the top of your base layer into the next, fold back the triangular tips and glue them down. Repeat for as many layers are you’d like, leaving the tips of the final layer where they are.

Then, assemble the log, and glue it inside the center of your tree.

Your campsite is compete!

Most of these pieces aren’t too difficult to assemble, but those last trees can be a bit tricky. Hopefully I explained it well enough to help you through it (otherwise, at least you have the pyramid tress to work with)!

3D Camping Set

I had so much fun making my 3D camper, and I had such positive responses, that I thought it would be fun to continue this outdoor trend. This design is different from most all of my other 3D paper crafts, in that it is a set of different little projects instead of one “big” one. I really liked creating this group of designs, so let me know if you’d like to see more 3D sets like this in the future.

I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other awesome 3D cut file freebies available on my blog!

Enjoy making this cute little 3D camping set! As always, I LOVE to see pictures of your finished results. Be sure to tag me (@designsmymissm) on Instagram, so I can see your paper craft masterpiece!

    Somehow your link to the free template is the camper, not this one. Thought I’d let you know!

    I love your designs but I am having trouble concerning the score lines. I have a Maker and using Design Space on a desktop. When I insert the file say score line I do not see them. When I attach the whole file turns one color. When I insert the solid score line and cut the machine cuts right through the image. How can I get the score lines, Thank you.

    Thank you so much for the sweet camping set! I don’t camp any more at my age but I do have some sweet little ones around who would have great fun putting this together and setting up their camp on a rainy day. Cheers!

    i love this set. However, when i go to download the file and unzip it, it is only showing the code pages not the svg file.

      Hi there! Sorry you are having trouble. It sounds like you may be encountering a file renaming issue that some Windows computers are having. I suggest taking a look at this article to see how to fix the problem.
