We’ve posted about dogs previously. Since then we’ve come across a ton of other fantastic paper dogs that also deserve to be highlighted.

We’ll start out this post with this beautiful looking dog folded from a sheet of mulberry paper.

This doberman pinscher design is still one of our all time favourite paper dog designs. Each of these is folded from different kinds of paper with different kinds of paint.

We really like how this dog design is a lot more 3-dimensional and seeing it from multiple angles is really great.

This Dalmatian design is really impressive with how the colour change makes little dots. You definitely need to use black and white paper to fold this one.
