Picture of Instructables Robot -- Paper Model
This is an instructable showing you how you can make your very own Instructables Robot model
i used photoshop elements to create the net for the model and to colour it and add details, overall this took me about a day to design but it will only take you about 5-10 minutes to make

I hope you enjoy it !

Step 1: Equipment + Tools

Picture of Equipment + Tools
This instructable doesn't require many tools so all you need is:
-- 1 Paperclip
-- Glue (any kind)
-- Scissors / Craft knife
-- A Printer
-- One sheet of paper

Step 2: Printing the Net

Picture of Printing the Net
The first thing you need to do is print off the net for the model
you can download it below, There are two options, you can either download the yellow and orange robot or a blank template so you can colour it in yourself !
when you click print make sure you check the "center image" box and don't check the scale to fit box or the image will become distorted.

Step 3: Cutting Out

Now you have printed your net you need to cut it out. The grey bits around the edge of the net are the tabs, don't cut them off !!

Be careful on this step and go slow, its very annoying when you cut the wrong bit and have to start again !!

When you are cutting out the legs don't cut around the wheel or Robot will fall over, look at the 2nd pic and cut it out like i did.

Step 4: Folding the Net

Now you have cut the net out you need to fold all the edges of the net, this will make it alot easier when you start to glue it all together.

Once you have folded all the edges and tabs, try to hold it all in place and make sure that you have folded all the bits you need to. (look at 2nd pic)

Well not just now, like, I'm saying:


My brother comes, grabs his and kind of squishes it (badly), and he was like "what's this?". He's 15. MAN I GOT SO MAD, IT WAS LIKE BROKEN!!! Then I crumpled it up and now I'll have to do it again.
Aw hahaha sorry to hear that!

I finished mine awhile ago, but forgot to post pictures. I used the pictures I already had from my sandwich contest. I glued everything together, then put a toothpick in (I didn't have any paperclips). That's why his head is smooshed. I tried to force the toothpick in, and it smooshed his head. Poor robot...

Haha that's awesome ! Don't worry about the head, the paper is flimsy and hard to keep straight, I had to poke mine around for a while too :P Thanks for the picture !

No prob! I made one from card stock a month or so later, but I threw it away because it didn't have as much character as this one :D

2/5..   a bit confusing.. ADD BLACK OUTLINES makes it a lot easier to cut...

I know it's upside down. I did it on purpose..well, kinda. I accidently put the slits for the "Bucket" on the wrong side and when I looked at it, it sorta worked for the "settings" =]
oh, LOL!
