TINY DOMO KUN!

This was a request from a co-worker, who noticed all my little paper friends, but wondered why I hadn’t made one of Domo Kun. I came to my cubicle one day to find the template printed out on my desk. When I went over to see him, he also had made one himself, but just a simple rectangle shape. He gave me the harder template because he didn’t have the patience to make it himself.

The original post was found on DeviantArt by subatomicsushi.

Instructions: Tiny Domo Kun Picture Tutorial

1. Print. (One or two to a page).
2. Cut away all excess paper using a penknife. (Cut through the center of the black outside lines).
3. Fold every black line towards the white side of the paper, except the two indicated by the red arrows. Fold these towards the printed side.
4. Use small amounts of scotch tape or glue to hold each joint together. (I used tape).
5. Start with his left side, work left to right with the legs, and attach his right side.
6. Follow the instructions for folding the arms.
7. Swing the back shut and attach it.
8. Attach the arms to the gray areas on the body.

Happy Pi Day!

I hope everyone is having a lovely 3.14 so far! I wanted to share a very adorable, and educational paper toy that I found on Canon‘s papercraft website.  It’s called the Fractional Cake, and will probably be an afternoon project that I make today for Pi Day.

"Pi" Chart

A delicious-looking cake serves as an entertaining way to learn fractions. Pieces cut into various fractional sizes can be assembled with care to create '1' whole cake. Three fraction boards with different numbers and designs can be interchanged to illustrate the basic principles of fractions.

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?

This papercraft of Spongebob Squarepants is awesome!  It’s not too difficult to piece together, and it has lots of fun details.  For one, his mouth is movable, which is perfect for him.  If you’ve ever seen the cartoon, it’s obvious he is a talkative, somewhat annoying little creature with a very notable laugh.  This papercraft is perfect for emulating it.

And my favorite part about this papercraft?  His pants come off!  So typical Spongebob, always running around Bikini Bottom without his pants…

UP!

I read an article the other day about how National Geographic created a real-life version of the floating house from the Pixar movie, Up. If you click on the picture above, it will take you to more pictures of the house’s production.

Seeing this reminded me that my friend Dan had requested forever ago that I make Carl from Up for him. I had the template all ready to go. It was just waiting to be cut out and folded. Below is the finished product! ^__^

The Beginning of a Budding Paper Engineer

Paper Steph surfing the web

If I had discovered paper crafts before/during college, I think I would have found a way to do this for a living (granted that, technically, I am being paid while creating majority of my crafts). My recent interest in this hobby first spawned when I was given a template of a 3D mini-Voltron. After seeing the finished product in all its adorableness, I couldn’t stop. Scouring the internet for more cute little paper figurines, I’ve now made a collection of easily over 25 characters littering my and my co-workers cubicle shelves.  I’m here now to share with you my newfound interest in paper engineering, so that you too may enjoy these fun little projects.
