Step 4: Folding!

After you've cut out your Papercraft, your going to do a few folds before we start to glue. 

If you hadn't noticed already, Papercrafts are the 'net' of the shape they will soon be. To get them to their shape we need to fold down every side, for example, above, in the picture every line highlighted in red should be folded in. If you folded it right, you should be able to hold the box together, like i am in the second picture,

After you fold a few folds, it'll be a lot easier to see how the rest fit in, and soon you'll end up with a box ready to glue!
this was great fun making is
<p>this is amazing.I made it too</p>
I think all of those look cool.
<p>this is very cool and fun thank you</p>
<p>when i try all the blocks the wool is 403 forbidden plz fix:)</p>
<p>I love making these things all the time but usually never know where to go to find templates. Thanks so much for this, it was so helpful! </p>
<p>could you please get me the minecart and rail please!</p>

<p>could you please get me the minecart and rail please!</p>
<p>Wow! This is amazing. We've had a last minute change to a Minecraft party and my son is stoked. Thank you!</p>
<p>this is great i am loving it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!</p>
<p>This is awesome! I printed a bunch for my six year old for Christmas! You Rock! Thank you for sharing! Saved me $85.00 - of course used a bit of ink but well worth it and I could print what I wanted!</p>
Awesome!! Enjoy!<br>
<p>What I really love is how you put the difficulty level next to each item. I have seven kids and my teens cracked up about the ender dragon &quot;not for the faint of heart&quot;. After I saw all the pieces I decided I'm too old for those reindeer games and just printed off the picture and gonna hang it from the dining room chandelier above the other stuff! LOL - Merry Christmas!</p>
<p>Lol!! So glad they're a hit!</p><p>Happy Holidays!</p>
Thanks! I enjoyed this very much and I'm currently working on L for Lee!
<p>Can you explain me how to make the door? i dont understand it</p>
<p>Can you give pictures about how to make the piston?</p>
<p>These are wonderful but one question...Should these be printed out on regular paper or special paper (if so why type)? Thanks!</p>
Regular printer paper works just fine! But get creative!<br><br>Just watch out, any glossy stuff might smudge while folding,
<p>I need a thank you card.</p><p>anyone&hellip;???</p>
I've seen a paper furnace that is off on one side, and lit with fire on the other. Do you think you might add that?
I cant find sheep part two why??????????
<p>a little bit late but maybe we all need this link Sheep page 2 </p><p>http://pixelpapercraft.com/files/1334907037970.png</p>
<p>Hello. I need a reply as soon as possible. I don't know what kind of &quot;thick&quot; paper you're talking about? I want to know what kind of paper is thick enough and can fit in a printer? I would like to buy it, and I don't really have a lot of paper in the printer at the time, so I would like to get that paper and my printer paper.</p>
<p>I saw it on pinterest so I tried it!<br><br>I brought 1 inch blocks from a craft shop. Using normal printer paper I printer them out to that scale and mod podged it on to the blocks. They hold up really well and the mod podge gives it a protective coating as my son beats them about abit. Also you don't have to worry about cutting all the tags around the edge :)</p>
<p>Probably cardstock</p>
<p>It still works?</p>
<p>THANK YOU!!!! This was Very helpful and thank you once again for the guide to a Epic PaperCraft Creation! The Layout below is my head on the 10th Doctor's body from DoctorWho! #Allonsy #GeeksRule #Whovian4Life</p>
<p>My son and I test printed the Creeper and the pixels are a bit blurry. We printed this out full page (no border). Before we were doing border and it was too big and still pixeled and looked blurry. Is there a way to fix this? Maybe change to 300dpi (Ive been told an image this small wont make a print difference in 72dpi to 300dpi). Are we doing something wrong? Your images look clear and some others Ive seen look clear. Thank you!</p>
I think whatever software you're using to print the image is simply stretching it to full page! actual size is near a quarter of that.<br><br>I'd find a way to print the file unchanged- MS Paint will work for that! Otherwise, see if there's an option to print a 4&quot;x6&quot; maybe, that should look much more clear!
<p>I amaze myself sometimes :D</p>
This is awsome I made the first pig head
<p>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. </p>
can u explain how to make the piston (working)
<p>The piston's easy!</p><p>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!</p><p>The little tabs that are on the end of the shaft help keep it from overextending, and falling out.</p><p>You can do it!</p>
<p>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..<br><br>Uploading images take too long.. anyone know a faster way to show them? (Otherwise no images shown)</p>
Try printing on thicker craft papers for a sturdier papercraft. I found mine at Micheal's in the scrapbooking isle.
Very true! Thicker papers also make some glues easier to work with!
^_^ 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 <br> <br>Ima print 2 copies of all 4 sheets in case i bum it up :3.. <br> <br>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
:D Hope all is going well! Ender dragons can be quite the challenge- i'm sure you'll get it though! <br> <br>Keep us updated! :p
How will you stick the parts of the piston that is moving?
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!
Can you make a instructions for Gimp?
Having a lot of trouble with the creeper and my cake came out wrong twice...please help me
Oh gosh! Sorry i didn't reply sooner- what happened?!
this is awesome! :)
