Introduction: Cardboard Minecraft TNT

My friend and I, (Although I kind of took over LOL) made this because we thought it would be cool and easy. Although it wasn't that easy and took a lot of different steps to paint it, I think it turned out pretty good.

Anyway this inspired us to start making other minecraft items so follow to see those!

okay, so I have a younger friend in elementary school who doesn't have a lot of friends. He doesn't have much self esteem, but he loves Minecraft. He's constantly talking about it, so I decided that it would be really cool for his birthday if I were to put one of these in front of his door and make a trail of red sand leading back to my house (which is just around the corner) where there would be a life-size redstone switch and a sign that says "Happy Birthday!" on it. I would like to use your build as a template for this but there are no instructions not even a series of photos to how it was made... can you help me?

Ha that's a cool idea!

Anyway the only thing you really have to do is paint a box. But to do that first paint the whole box red, then add a white stripe all around the sides that covers 1/3 of each side. For the top, look up "Minecraft TNT Texture" And find one that shows the top. The top is 16x16 pixels so devide the box length by 16 to find out how big you should paint each pixel. Then it just comes down to measuring and tracing the pixels on and painting them in.

Hope I could help at least a little bit.

You're timing is perfect. his birthday is in two weeks, so I have just enough time to make this. Thanks a ton. This really helps.
