Fun Paper Folding Projects and Crafts Inspired by the Hunger Games Movies and Books

Hunting down some fun Hunger Games Origami? Did you love the popular movies and books? Well now you can enjoy seeing a selection of resources for paper folded projects and instructions all on one handy page that were put together by a fan. I love fantasy tales and I also love crafting - put the two together and it's even more fun.

You'll discover where you can find some fictional Mockingjay birds, paper folded fire and flames, folded hunting arrows like Katniss uses, and Effie inspired paper fashion. I loved putting together this page for you, so I hope you love it too. And may the odds be ever in your favor when you're doing these origami tutorials.

For making really great HG Origami, Metallic Foil Origami Papers in golds, oranges and reds look especially good - just like they're catching fire! You can see how I used foils in my own example on this page.

Hunger Games Themed Paper Crafts & Origami

Have you watched any of the HG movies or just read the books? Are you craving some themed paper crafts for yourself or to keep kids occupied with their obsession over the new Catching Fire?

Here's a selection of Origami Project Resources I've taken the time to present on one handy page which feature themes and motifs you'll recognize from this novel Hunger Games series. There isn't currently much in the way of actual origami which has specifically been made for these popular movies so I got very creative.

The fictional Mockingjay bird motif is very similar to hummingbird designs which I've selected instead. And I even found some fire for you to fold too. Make sure you scroll further down the page for Katniss and Effie inspired projects as well.

Use Gold for Mockingjay Designs

Give your paper craft project a special look by folding the Mockingjay bird with some gold colored foil paper.

Paper Projects Based on Katniss Everdeen

Katniss is such a powerful Hunger Games character: brave and strong yet compassionate too. The most obvious reminder of Katniss is her hunting equipment in the form of a bow and arrow. So I found some excellent weaponry arrow origami and even one tutorial where you can make a 3D arrow by folding paper and it looks pretty much like the real thing. Kids can have pretend hunting sessions with that.

For Katniss, the beautiful yellow dandelion flower presents a symbol of hope. You'll find some fairly easy dandelion paper projects which you can fold although they're not strictly origami because they do involve some cutting with scissors.

The other thing which reminds me of Kat is her braided hair. There's a fantastic braided bookmark project just below which can be made from strips of paper. Have fun but don't forget there's some excellent Effie origami and she's my favorite character.

Effie Trinket. Oh My! What a Character!

Effie's my personal favorite Hunger Games character, can you tell! She's really loud and proud with her amazing sense of style and fashion. And I just adore her awesome clothes!

If you love Effie as much as I do, or even if you're just into fashion paper crafting, there's some fab project links above to take you to some inspired origami projects based on her character. Effie loves those oversized floral decorations she wears in her hair and on her costumes. Picked out for you are some great flower and bloom tutorials that she would be really proud of.

I hope you've enjoyed reading this hub today, thanks for your visit. Below, you'll find some paper folding projects to make a dress and shoes for Ms Trinket and even a pair of really fun, moving origami lips which are amazing.

Effie loves to wear flowers in her hair - why not make some big blooms from origami and wear those in yours?
