Four full years ago, I started the Spongebob Papercraft collection with Patrick Star, the first craft using a new technique that allowed rounder shapes and less flaps. Oh yes, papercraft is such a sophisticated science…
And today, I present to you the result of four years of elaborate research, in shape of the seven main characters from Nickelodeon’s flagship: Spongebob, Patrick, Gary, Plankton, Squidward, Mr. Krabs and Sandy.
On that note...
Are ya ready, kids?
Step 1: You need:
- Paper: Attempts to print the templates on grave stones and artificial turf failed. I still recommend using paper. Paper with 160 g / m2 is not necessarily needed, but it makes your models look more valuable. (normal paper has 80 g / m2)
- A Printer: Attempts to draw the templates by hand failed. I still recommend using a printer or a copy shop.
- Crafting Stuff: Attempts to tear the paper into the right shapes and hold it together with bubble gum failed. I still recommend using scissors and glue. For some parts, I suggest tiny pins, tiny scissors, an X-Acto knife and tweezers.
In general, it is enough to print page two from all of the PDFs, that saves ink and paper and, by implication, the planet. The models are in order from left to right on the picture and don’t follow any chronological order. You can make any figure that you want first.
- The Templates: Attempts to rebuild the templates using the reference pictures failed. I still recommend downloading them from kamibox.de.
