I made a skull completly out of cardboard (just use cardboard boxes) and hot glue. If you want you can attach clay or something to it so it looks even more like a real human skull. I didn't make it, because I think it looks better like this.

Step 1: Construction

First I used 123D make from autodesk to design it. It's pretty easy to make but you can download it.

Step 2: Cut Out the Pieces

I printed the shapes out on paper and fixed them to cardboard.
Next I cut with a box cutter all layers out.

If you have a laser cutter it's much easier and not so time consuming.

Step 3: Glue It

Now you only have to glue the shapes together. Just use the instruction of the 123D make program. I glued it with hot glue but if you want you can use other glues, too.

Step 4: Enjoy

Now the only thing you have to do is enjoy the finshed skull or like I said in the beginning use clay for more detail and paint it if you want.

Thanks for reading this and have fun with making your cardbourd skull.

PS: Sorry for my english it's not the best.

<p>123D make is now closed unfortunately. Any idea where I could find an alternative place to find the file? Eager to try this. Looks great!</p>
<p>thanks I uploaded the pdf-file so you could download it there are dots in the shape so you can put them over each other precisely.</p>
<p>Amazing job and thanks for the very quick response! :)</p>
<p>First : great job</p><p>Second : some links are missing in your instructable (as 123d make in your step 1)</p><p>Third : You should have put the pdf you come with to this result</p><p>By doing so, your instructable would be top ! :)</p>
<p>Thanks</p><p>Seems like I have forgotten the link have put it in now.</p><p>I don't knowew what you mean with the third point</p>
<p>He probably mean that you should have made a template in PDF form and share it on here, to make it easier for those of us who wants to recreate your project.</p>
<p>It would be awesome if you vote for this project.</p><p>A big thank you to everybody who does. </p>
<p>This is great! I'd love to see any pictures you have of the process you took to make it! </p>
<p>I discovered instructables after I made the skull and so I couldn't take pictures of the process sorry</p>
