This instructable will show you how to make a Gameboy-like "handheld" out of just paper and glue.

Step 1: Materials

For this project, you will need:

Cardstock,
A printer,
Scissor/Hobby knife,
Some elmers or a gluestick (recommended use elmers),
One of my templates (just rightclick-save image and then copy into paint or word).
More colors coming soon!

Step 2: Assembly 1

First print out your template on cardstock after saving it and printing it.

IN ORDER TO PRINT FROM MSPAINT YOU MUST SET THE PAGE LAYOUT AS LANDSCAPE AND THEN SELECT FIT TO PAGES 1 THROUGH 1 VERY IMPORTANT!!!!

Step 3: Assembly 2

Now cut out and score your template.
Cut out the template on the very outer lines.
Now score the template with your knife or scissors on the green lines. (Careful you dont cut too deep)

Step 4: Assembly 3

Now fold the model along your scores and glue on these.

Hold the box together tight for a few second while the glue gets firmer.

Congratulations, your paper Gameboy is now done!
<p>Looks like half a DS without the shoulder buttons.</p>
there arent any shoulder buttons
yeah, and the d-pad looks a little off too. plus micro's don't come in yellow, or at least to my knowledge.
did anyone else notice the right button layout is that of the xbox/x360???
yeah lol :D i have gameboy micro and thers only the a and b
by which i mean the 4 buttons on the right
&nbsp;Looks kinda like my gameboy micro.
its a really nice concept, and its pretty cool to me, but, yeah u should add a pdf so the printout is a bit cleaner
tight
Great, but add a pfd.
what do you mean?
He means a PDF
whats that?
Its a file type, one of the most commonly used (probably second to microsoft word) file types used for printing, you need to do some research if you don't know what they are - almost any document you download off a businesses website will be in .pdf, maybe youguys have heard of the program that makes .pdf files, Adobe Acrobat ?
yeah, i have acrobat
Ahh yeah well the files you read with it (or make if you bought it/got a free alternative) are .pdf files
Can u make It a pdo file too, plz
