Software for designing a cardboard blueprint? Answered

Picture of

Is there any software that is specifically designed for making cardboard/wood/paper/etc blueprints? Something that you fold together like Google Cardboard. Something that I can print out on a sheet of paper to fold together. 

Thanks,

Thanks, I had the idea to use Sketchup to design it and I'll use that to make it into a paper cutout.

Yes, Pepakura is the way to go then.

I would simply use Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape which is free (https://inkscape.org/en/). You should design it flat, in 2D. If you happen to have access to a local makerspace with a laser cutter, they could then cut it out for you in a matter of seconds.
