wow! your instructables are amazing! I am also going to try to make all of them!

gewiz 1 (author)2009-03-08

Your Instructables are INSANE! I am working on making all of them. Do you have a guide you got for all of them or did you think them all up on your own?

jerry1308 (author)2008-12-12

dude i did it for my school project too for what math?;)

jerry1308 (author)2008-12-08

lil dude i suggest using metal hinges thats your best bet

lildude33 (author)jerry13082008-12-12

we tried everything that we could and it turned out that some duck tape works the best. It makes a great toy (I even used it in one of my school projects) and I think it is much easier to make than a paper one.

lildude33 (author)2008-08-30

my dad and I are going to make one from wood does anyone have suggestions of how to bind the wood together?

Well lil dude ive seen the basic square ones of these in stores, and it seams like a stiff paper hing, like glued on but also goes all over the pieces, and then you can paint it too.

vianka99 (author)2008-10-31

WOW! O_O i can't do that

XxUnicornSkieexX (author)2008-08-29

i love the thing you made at the end but the thing was hard and confusing to make you dudnt say the points and went to fast slow down and explain what your doing.

Flumpkins (author)2008-05-04

Three words... = OH MY GOD =

Oscelot (author)2008-06-06

Wow. you are positively incredible!
I'm actually curious, partly because of your hands, partly because of how you use English, and partly because you are so incredibly good at papercraft, if you're German? I vaguely remember my Oma being really good at it, and I've seen tons of papercraft german tutorials. _

So tell me, does paper just bend to your will? I swear it looks like it practically folds itself!

ScienceWiz (author)2008-04-28

Technically thats 88 things u said... COOL INSTRUCTABLES!

ninjastar500 (author)2008-04-07

jakezcop (author)2007-11-20

Kiteman (author)2007-11-20

Very nice, but could you slow down the video? It took a few watches to get the sticky tape hinges right.
