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.

Buy assembly and mounting materials to build your own terrains from Lab 424, Amazon, and Etsy.

Learn more details on the project page.

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:

  1. Before you fold the panel, flip the panel over (picture side down).
  2. Install the tape strips after you fold. This helps you align the strips to the score lines.

<p>this is a great Idea for refrigerator magnets.</p>
Really good idea! I'm trying to think of cheap ways to decorate my apartment and this is perfect! The only mistake I see is that you made the walls/ceiling of the spawner Mossy Cobble, when they're supposed to be regular Cobble. :)
I love this idea!!! Thank you!
Very cool. My kids would love to live in their own Minecraft worlds!
that is really awesome
Awesome, nice job!
