Introduction: Papercraft Zombies

Quick and easy to make Papercraft Zombie decorations.

They can also creep around with the addition of a Fizzbit.

Step 1: Step 1: What You Need

You need:

The template printed onto white card (if you have any, otherwise office paper will do)

Scissors

Glue (UHU type is a bit quicker but PVA works too)

If you want your zombies to move you also need

3 Fizzbits

3 self-adhesive pads (or pieces of double sided sticky tape)

Step 2: Step 2: Cut Out the First Zombie

Cut along the solid lines around the first Zombie and its arms.

Step 3: Step 3: Fold and Glue the Body

Fold along the dotted lines, put glue on the tabs and then stick the body together.

Step 4: Step 4: Fold and Attach the Arms

Fold along the dotted lines on the arms and glue them onto the side of the body in a suitably creepy position. If you don't want your zombie to move you are done! Just make the other two in the same way and find a good spot for them to decorate your halloween party. To make them move read on...

Step 5: Step 5: Add the Fizzbit

Pop your Zombie down on its head and stick a sticky pad just inside the hole at the back. Attach the Fizzbit to this pad. If you are using double-sided tape stick a bit to the flat part of the Fizzbit (under the motor) and stick this inside the Zombie's head.

Step 6: Step 6: Make the Other Zombies

Repeat these steps for the other two zombies and you are done!

If they have Fizzbits you can plug your zombies into some USB ports for 30s and then send them off on a terrifying rampage.

If you want to go big there are templates here to make double-size zombies (1 A4 page each).

There is also a blank template so you can design and colour in your own zombies.

Have a creepy time! ;)

Oh and that fizzbit module looks amazing. Do they have on/off switches?

author

Nope, they just start running as soon as you unplug them. When they run down you can just charge again. Charge takes about 30s and as the energy store is a capacitor you can do tens of thousands of cycles and it will still work happily.

author

That's really exciting. Approximately how long does the motor run for after you set it loose?

author

About 30s on a 30s charge. Up to about a minute for longer charges.

Yes, those biscuit-eating zombies are so much easier to deal with than the flesh-eating kind.

you could probably use hexbug nanos to make them move.

are Fizzbits sold in Indonesia?

author

They ship globally from the UK, so yes though only online.

This reminds me so much of the episode of Adventure Time with the "businessmen" zombies.
