Today's Papercraft Project arises from a question that has plagued mankind for centuries. Namely, what would you do if you had your own mindless drones willing to do your bidding? Wars, devastation, galactic empires across the galaxies, giant industrial corporations, and the
Well, this project, thankfully, will not address any of these questions! Nope, the papercraft today the famous Digg Logo is not only an adorable mass of inane paper but is so easily replicated that after a few attempts you can have mindless drones of your own! You can't send them to do your bidding, but they make excellent theft deterrent!
Note: Member SHIFT! does not endorse anyone else's plans for world domination, except for his own. Maybe.
Step 1: Papercraft Profile
This papercraft, however, comes from the website paperworks.wikidot.com and was submitted by user Freebooter Fox, aka Stickypurplecat. Besides this one, Freebooter Fox has some truly amazing papercraft projects such as the iconic Awesome Face, Sol Emeralds and even real working Papercraft Hinges! Truly Astounding!
As always, I never host any of the papercraft files, just provide links to their site where you can download them FOR FREE. You will also need to download Pepakura to view the files on your computer.

Step 2: Materials and Tools
Scissors (preferably Barber's brand), Tweezers (the thin 45 degree angled ones work well), Glue (Aleene's Tacky Glue) and Human Blood!
OK, so maybe that last one is optional but blood never really bothered me. In fact, I think it gives my project a distinctive "Look what I made with my blood and tears in the last 20 minutes!"
Also Cardstock Paper, 110 lb.
Step 3: Cut Out the Pieces
Warning: Cutting out paper can be very dangerous! Be sure to ask your parent's permission before attempting such a dangerous task, even if you are above the age of 20. Hell, even I still do it sometimes.
"Hey Dad, can I cut out this papercraft?"
"No Son, cutting paper ruins lives. It's what made your old man go insane and become a cat hoarder!"
"But I always thought it was because you didn't wear any pants!"
"Yes, that too."
Step 4: Creating the Body
The main body of the Digg Logo is basically like one square box thing that my boss constantly warns us not to 3D print, because it wastes resin. But in paper it's perfectly fine because it's only killing trees. I mean, what have trees ever done for anyone. Provide oxygen to let us breathe? HA! Breathing is for losers and is completely overrated! You know who else liked to breathe? Stalin.
Step 5: Attaching the Head
In any good zombie movie, the trick to killing them is to always go for the head. In this case however, because papercrafts are immobile by nature, you don't really need to glue the head unless you want to. However, according to the papercraft civil rights union, this could be considered extremely cruel and almost a form of sadism.
Step 6: Making the Shovel
But it's not impossible. Basically what you are creating is a kind of kickboard thing out of paper with a thin piece of paper sticking out with a loop for the end. The best thing I can suggest, if you want to finish this build up quickly, is to refer back to the pepakura file and analyze how that was put together.
Otherwise, you can just print off a copy of the 2D version here and use that. But sadly, that's not how you build an effective army. A good soldier is only as good as his weaponry, as soon as it gets destroyed they are sitting ducks. And in this case, the shovel is like their M180.
Step 7: Dominate Everyone!
Until next papercraft, stay sharp!
