Picture of Zombie Hand Guest Book
Hey guys i know this is right after Halloween, but I still wanted to share this very simple paper craft that will hold a candle to guide the lost souls to your party to write there names for being there or used it in other places such as being next to a bowl to light up just a small area and even out side in the yard or as a hand torch.
I will also include both a blank and colored versions for free here though if you like you can donate here  at paypal.

Step 1: Brain Storming

When coming up with a paper craft you will have to sketch up a pre plan idea. I though of a torch in the shape of a flame with eyes and a mouth, but thought of the zombie hand and liked it better. Afterwards, i began to sketch my idea in a small not book i picked up from hobby lobby for next to nothing.

Step 2: Modeling

using Google sketch i began to make the model piece by piece making each piece a component then exporting piece by piece as a .dea and importing into pepakura and setting the scale to 25.4mm to keep the scale right. 1:1. 

Step 3: Exporting and Texturing

i export the finished piese and .esp in the vector and take them to photoshop and began to color then texture with different wall textures for a grungy effect then after the pieces are down i arrange them on an 8.5"X11" letter size document then i print them out.

Step 4: Cutting

Basically cut out all the shapes and try to follow the line. I recommend an exacto knife, but Scissors are okay if you can get a better cut. 

Step 5: Creasing

either using a bone creaser or any other type of creaser and a ruler will help make perfect folds. DO all the creasing first then fold each one.
