Some gamers need a Railgun, others choose an M1A1, most seem to desire an Energy Sword...but what we need is a pickaxe! That's right, our current favorite diversion from lab work is Minecraft. We didn't want the fun to stop on the screen, so we created giant, 3-D, papercraft Minecraft terrains on our walls and show you how to build your own. Enjoy.

This instructible shows you how to build giant 3-D Minecraft terrains on your wall using simple, raised papercraft panels. The papercraft panels use a modified version of our Panel Poster panels. They are fast to build, no glue is needed, and are easy to install and remove using our non-permanent adhesive blocks.
Here's a 7:47 minute video showing you how to build and install a panel for a similar project, Giant 3D Papercraft Space Invaders. The process is identical with these 2 exceptions:
- Before you fold the panel, flip the panel over (picture side down).
- Install the tape strips after you fold. This helps you align the strips to the score lines.
