Minecraft is an AWESOME game, where you can build stuff from little cubes.  Everything is a cube.  Even YOU are a cube!

If you haven't played Minecraft yet, I strongly urge you to.  It is pretty awesome.

Christmas is coming up, and I have this friend who is slightly  completely OBSESSED with this game, so I figured I would make a set of REAL Minecraft blocks so that he could play Minecraft at work anytime he is offline!

This set of REAL Minecraft Blocks includes wood, grass, stone, brick, diamond, sand, a chest, and the head of a Creeper! 

All you need is
a set of 1-1/4" wooden cubes (about $3.00 for a pack of 8 at Hobby Lobby or Michael's)
some glue (I used elmers!)
a paintbrush
a printout of Minecraft Blocks (see attached PDF!)
Scissors / Paper Cutter Thingy

Step 1: Cut 'em up!

Cut out your squares.  Try to keep them in little groups of the block type.  

Different blocks have different sides to them, so I included in the PDF a little instruction telling you which side each picture goes on.  (not shown in picture)

Paper cutters work WONDERFULLY for this, though you can use normal scissors as well.
<p>dat is just so sick.</p>
<p>niiiiiiiice!</p>
<p>ummmmmmmmmmmm......... where do u get de cubes in AU???????????????</p><p>plz answer cause i realy wnt to make dem</p>
<p>You should be able to find them at your local hobby store, such as Jo-Anne Fabrics or Hobby Lobby.</p>
Im about to do this, but was thinking of painting them instead. Amazing use of innuendo. :)
this is cool but another easy way to get the blocks is just download any minecraft texture pack and search for the block you want. the print the png at like 500% or something.
<p>EPIC!!!!!</p>
Thank you!
<p>Nicely done!</p>

No not those wooden blocks he means the printables
Cool
I made these for my son's Christmas stocking. I think they came out really cute! Unfortunately, after searching at three different craft stores, the only 1.25 inch wood blocks I could find came in packages of three, and I got the last two packages. So I'll need to make the remaining two another time. Thanks for the fun, quick project!
Where did you get the pdf of the blocks or how did you make this? Your idea is great, but I'd like to make more types of blocks and all I can find online are templates for paper blocks with tabs.
I love Minecraft! You might want to make more blocks, though
I found an origami chest that YouTube's adamsara (I think) made for her wedding. It would be cool to put the chest pattern on it.
It would be cool if the chest really opened and store stuff, but otherwise really cool!
Hmm...That is a great idea! I might just try and do that next.
very cool!
Awesome! Finally I know what those wooden cubes from the craft shop can be used for.
That is pretty cool! Now, combine it with a model creeper to make a sop motion film :D
to cool !!!!!!! <br>
Wow! That looks pretty good!
