Carousel Animals – Carousel Cut Files

Around and around we go! It’s been over a year since I posted my first complex, three-dimensional paper craft, and I’m excited to be sharing something new to go with it today. Use these six adorable carousel animals to customize your 3D carousel even more, or make them as a fun little paper craft.

When I posted my 3D carousel last year, I had no idea what people would think, or if anyone would even try to make it for themselves. Now, I’ve seen so many of you take on this fun paper craft challenge, and it has been so incredibly awesome to see the results!

One thing I didn’t anticipate is the unique take people would have when making my carousel project. After seeing a few different variations, I thought it would be fun to create some alternate animals to be used for even more customization opportunities. That’s where these cuties come in.

I actually used the dragon design in this set to create a “spooky” version of my carousel, and I LOVE the way it turned out!

Check out this tutorial video to see how I put this carousel together.

Of course, even if you don’t plan on putting a whole carousel together anytime soon, these designs stand alone quite nicely! And I’ve included a carousel pole in the design that you can use to make these into a beautiful card or scrapbook piece.

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 die cut freebies available on my blog!

Enjoy making these carousel animals for yourself! Which animal(s) would you feature on your carousel?

    I’m a beach fanatic (when you live in Florida, duh), so anything water related, especially the sea horse, is fantastic!

      Awesome! I want so badly to live somewhere near the beach someday (being landlocked in Utah is hard for a girl who was born in Hawaii)!! My little sister lives in Florida and loves it there. 🙂

    I love this pattern. It was actually very easy to put together. I made a Valentine version for a gift. Wish I could send you a pic
