Picture of The Ultimate Guide to Minecraft Papercrafts!
After quite the search for a Minecraft Papercraft instructable, I was a little shocked to see there were almost none- so i went on a quest to bring justice to the inkjet printing, paper folding, and pickaxe picking communities. With that said, onto the instructable!

I think at one point or another, we're all wanted to have a bit of Minecraft in our everyday lives, and with Papercrafts, now we can! Weather you want a creeper to sit peacefully on your desk, or a pig riding Steve above your computer, with this instructable, you'll learn how!

(oh, and if you not into minecraft, there's thousands of other Papercraft templates out there, if you can't find one, i'm sure you'll have no trouble following along in this tutorial,)

Step 1: Finding Your 'Prints'

Picture of Finding Your 'Prints'
Before we can start 'crafting' our miniature blocks and mobs, we need to find a template for what we want to build, to help you out, i've compiled a multitude of templates, ready to print, for you to use. Just pick what you want to create from down below, and save it. When your set, check out step two. Oh, and in the parenthesis is the difficulty of the craft, for the most part these are easy, but some can be a bit more challenging!

Thank you for posting this! It's very helpful. A lot of these are really hard to find anywhere else on the internet so it's quite convenient.

can u explain how to make the piston (working)
BenBurge (author)  swayam201 month ago

The piston's easy!

Just build it in two parts. The main block, should have a hole from the top- once you finish the part with the shaft, you fold the tabs the hang off if it up, and slide it into that hole!

The little tabs that are on the end of the shaft help keep it from overextending, and falling out.

You can do it!

I have almost finished the EnderDragon.. Its wasn't too hard for me but maybe for others.. -_- I just got that annoying tail to do..

Uploading images take too long.. anyone know a faster way to show them? (Otherwise no images shown)

Try printing on thicker craft papers for a sturdier papercraft. I found mine at Micheal's in the scrapbooking isle.
BenBurge (author)  dlindstrom3 months ago
Very true! Thicker papers also make some glues easier to work with!
FluroFire3 months ago
^_^ I am going to attempt the Ender Dragon.. I will let you guys know how it turns out... If i don't go insane. XD

Ima print 2 copies of all 4 sheets in case i bum it up :3..

Wish me luck.!
I will also post pictures... I don't think i will take them as i go.. maybe, if your all luck ;D
BenBurge (author)  FluroFire3 months ago
:D Hope all is going well! Ender dragons can be quite the challenge- i'm sure you'll get it though!

Keep us updated! :p

How will you stick the parts of the piston that is moving?
BenBurge (author)  lsomcio3 months ago
The moving piece gets folded in such away that it's free moving inside the base- as long as you don't pull to hard! At least i believe so, i haven't made on in a while!

I would add a light, so when you trigger it in some way (punching it?) it lights up, like I did before with a mario coin block.
BenBurge (author)  jduffy5410 months ago
Sweet! Post some pics if you get something working- i'd love to see it!

Please help! I am having trouble with the "Your skin!" construction! How do you attach the arms and legs to the body?!? Please reply! ~The Mdawg
BenBurge (author)  mdawg8140010 months ago
Sorry this comes a bit late, but simply attach the legs and arms as they would be the character in game! Arms on the side, and legs on the bottom of the torso!
I can help you there. You see the tabs on the edges of the arms? Well, attatch them under the top body flap.
oh btw can you add accessories like pickaxes the actual steve figure can hold? i think thats a really cool idea
BenBurge (author)  MACHOMINECRAFT10 months ago
The pickaxe is up there, but because of image hosting sites constantly changing i don't think i'll be updating the hyperlink-list much more...
Check out- -they have a whole section just for items!
do you need a certain photoshop? i have 2 and im not sure if you need a certain one.
