32 inches. Yes. This is a large paper toy.
It’s all made from normal card stock you print in your home printer – No 3d printer required. Check out the “quick look” below to see a short video showing its dimensions etc.
Photo: The Houston temple had been flooded due to Hurricane Harvey and finally rededicated in April 2018. These temples were on display during the Houston Bear creek rededication fireside. I have no room for something that large, so I believe it ended up in the stake president’s office afterward.
note: If you are looking for a smaller/simple temple or other temples like this, search “temple” on the LDS Paper Toy main page.
DON’T BUILD THIS
This is not a typical LDS paper toy. Generally, I like to make paper toys really simple so kids can assemble quickly during a lesson. However, this one takes at least an entire day to put together.
If you insist on building this large temple, be sure to build this one first. Then at least you will be familiar with how it goes together. Otherwise, it would be quite a puzzle.
(The one in the photo above has a roof made out of foam board though. But you don’t have to. I simply traced the paper roof onto foam board and cut it out. I also made the Moroni out of hot glue and spray paint)
Items you will need:
- After you have completely built this small temple, then you can download the large one here and print out on cardstock
- Utility knife
- (optional) Foam board – to act as a base you can glue to…and you can use it as the roof if you want. But if you do, you’ll need to cut custom walls to hold up the roof. Then cover with the printed paper.
- (optional) gold spray paint – if you want to make your Moroni totally awesome
