Minecraft Paper Machine

Picture of Minecraft Paper Machine
I guess Minecraft is popular.
Over 14 billion copies have been sold, meaning that every single person on the earth bought the game twice, and those are statistics that are completely made up by me.

Nevertheless, Minecraft seemed to be very well suitable for papercraft, and not only that, it is the most searched keyword in the combination with papercraft on the whole internet and it even makes the people craft their Steves in iPhone apps (That was kind of sad, because my 2 papercraft apps have been dislodged).
First I was like meh, because the whole progress in papercraft history, the implementation of curves, the reduction of flaps, everything thrown away for pixely block heads, the absolute beginning of simplest paper works?
Then I was like yea whatever, because it makes people craft and maybe they want to dig deeper. So I gave in after a few months of Minecraft invading the papercraft sector and made a Minecraft Paper Machine. It moves, at least, and actually has got everything satisfying me as a paper designer, despite the curves.
And it is just a global phenomenon, which I swore to paperize all of, some may remember the Paper PSY, for example, it made me very happy that so many made him, I saw him in a lot of videos on Youtube.

Step 1: Preparation

You need:
  • A Printer
  • Internet (You just proved that you own that one)
  • Paper (thick, about 160 - 200 g / m²), Scissors, Glue, Ruler
To make your work easier, I recommend using a cutter, tweezers, those little pins, and tiny scissors used for cutting out silhouettes.

You can find the instructions here:
Please download the PDF and print at least the second page. The others are just decoration and instructions, but you get the instructions here in a written form. On that kind of paper, that is twice as thick and heavy as normal paper, the printer options for non-glossy photo paper are usually the best.

So I walks up to the mine craft guy and I asks him, "Is that a sword in your hand or are you just happy to see me?"

Good instructable.
Cool idea combining the motion with the papercraft to make it more interactive.

I really could have done without the explicit lyrics on the music you chose for your background soundtrack. This is something I would consider Not Safe For Work.

With a little tweaking, this project can be adult oriented. Nice job. I know; my mind is in the gutter as they say.

When I saw this in the email, I thought it was quite NSFW. Then I realized what was what.

Obviously I don't play Minecraft.

Beautiful combination of Minecraft and Papercraft. Well explained and the gif on the opening is hilarious. Nicely done all around. Thank you.
