I can’t believe I have won the craft contest! Thanks to every one who has voted for this project and the judges!

At the moment, I have to spend a lot of time on the computer and rejoice about every visitor.
What a coincidence that I have a printer, 40 pages of thick colored paper and a weekend!

Make this life size sculpture from 100% paper on the next rainy saturday and never feel alone in your office again! Let’s go!

Step 1: What you need

  • 40 pages of (at least) 160 g / m2 paper: That is twice as thick as normal paper. Colored would be a great thing, because the model itself has no color. This is the small room I leave for your creativity.
  • Glue, scissors, cutter: I use liquid glue (UHU) because it dries on colored paper in seconds, and I have another smaller pair of scissors, and some little pins and a tweezer to hold stuff together while it dries.
  • Cardboard: For the back. About 12" x 12". As thin as possible.
  • Wallpaper: For the great pop-out-effect. Same size as the cardboard.
My first try (without the wallpaper though)
Wow, very nice! <br>Looks better without the wallpaper maybe in this case.
<p>i made it</p>
<p>Thanks a lot!</p><p>We used 160g-paper and varnished the white paper in the desired color.</p><p>A great project for our teenager!</p>
<p>LOVE IT!! I'm going to try it! I s it a lot of work though?</p>
<p>Really nice!</p><p>It was a lot of work (some days) but it's looking fantastic at the wall!</p><p>Had some problems with the nose, ears and fingers too but finally managed it (including two mistakes).</p><p>Thanks!</p>
<p>This is awesome, I'm gonna try to make this, but I'm a noob papercrafter so it probably won't turn out well XD</p>
<p>how i can download? it always call me become a member:S</p>
Hola, this is made for A4.
<p>Done it! Enjoyed it! Thanks a lot :-)</p>
<p>I used plain white 175 g/m2 paper. Worked perfectly and I placed it right above my desk. Actually used <em>hot glue</em> instead, but still turned out great! The only suggestion I might have is to add more letters to the tabs in places like the ears or fingers. Also it would help if you put more views on the sheets with the rendered models with the numbered piece placement because there were some blind-spots.</p>
<p>hey , how did you get the number to show up on the 3d model in the first page? Or did you create that in Photoshop as a guide.</p>
Yes, I added the numbers.
<p>por q no hacen uno igual en forma de hombre seria super</p>
<p>why i cant find the link for download this template?</p><p>help me please</p>

<p>Awesome!!!! I Want a tiger!!! pleeseeee!</p>
Awesome instructable, looks fantastic on my wall! Thinking of adding some solar powered led lights inside for a cool night time effect.
<p>I absolutely love this . I'm new to papercrafts, this is the exact direction i am going with my work as an artist. what 3d software did you use to create this figure with so many polygons. Im teaching myself to use sketchup ,but should i be using a different program? my goal is to make large papercrafts with a high polygon count. any advice?</p>
Thank you! I am not very much into Sketchup, but I think there are better alternatives. For free software, there are Anim8or or Blender, Anim8or is simpler and very beginner friendly and should be enough for every papercraft. You can check out my Paper Clone Instructable, it is a bit older, but it explains the software a bit.
<p>Tthanks for the quick reply! I will check out these programs. I do have another Q. How do you scale larger than pepakura's max scale size? To achieve something like this ( <a href="http://vimeo.com/81700014" rel="nofollow">http://vimeo.com/81700014</a>) on cardboard, or polypropylene sheets or recycled plastic. I hope you know Bc i was up until 5am searching the internet. </p>
<p>I would use a normal scale model but let it print on a bigger format. Pepakura doesn't really have a max scale size, but from some point the polygons are too big for A4 / Letter.</p>
<p>Awesome Project! Loved making it!</p><p>The first one is in our office at work (IT) and the second one is under construction.</p>
<p>how did you mount the sculpture? just with nails?</p><p>It looks amazing by the way :)</p>
Thank you! I made holes in the back plate and mounted it on 3 nails.
<p>Really cool decorative project, I will have to try it out once I get a little time.</p>
<p>its mine. that was great project! </p>
:-o Amazing...
<p>This placed on a glass panel. 1 Day Work :D !!</p>
<p>Does anyone have a video of how to put these pieces together? We are having some trouble. I did not see it on youtube. Thanks. Any help would be appreciated.</p><p>risamiller@optonline.net</p>
This would be fun to modify for Halloween; I'm thinking the ghosts from the Silent Hill 4 game. <br> <br>Fun project!
what size paper did you use?
Amazing. I think a paper deer head will be hanging on my wall in the near future.
eww, who wants a head of a deer on their wall :3
Thanks so much for this! I had a lot of fun making one ... I made a few mistakes, but overall it turned out very nicely. This will make a great decoration for Halloween! <br>The only suggestion that I have to improve it would be to print matching numbers on the surfaces to be joined ... it was sometimes a challenge to figure out the orientation of the pieces. (I'd post a photo of my effort, but the &quot;add images&quot; button isn't working).
I agree very much with you briangreiner... it needs matching numbers, I haven't been able to get 1 &amp; 2 together and I am very patient. :/
Holy shit, exactly what I was planning to make (conceptually, didn't have an idea yet about how to tackle the practical side) and now I find it on here :D <br>There goes my instructable, but at the same time very nice to have a practical solution :D
Well you didn't win the cutter... But you could always sell the camera and buy the silhouette cameo cutter ( which is better) and more! Congratulations!
I will keep the camera and buy a silhouette cutter ;)
Congratulations!! Well Deserved, but you know I was very sure that you will be winning the cutter, but Ahhh the mysterious Judges ;-). <br>Cheers!!
Too Good! :)
This is awesome ... I think you would win the silhouette cutter! Btw how do you make these... Like how do you know where to fold... I want to make one where the palms of the hands are open but joined .. Sort of like when you put your palms together to pray.. But in this case open... Can you put up the file please!<br> It would be cool to drop small things in the hands :-)
I use Pepakura to unfold a 3D model. Pepakura is free (as a trial) and this is the 3D file: http://www.kamibox.de/files/wandfrau_004.3ds<br>You can edit the model with 3D programs like Anim8or (free)
Ooh, a velociraptor would look awesome too! Really impressed with your skills, I think this looks like the centerpiece of a museum exhibit!
just awesome
please give the original pepakura file it works so much better with the 3D model than with these pics of the model :D
