How to Create a Mini-city Invasion Scene From Cardboard and Tape!

Introduction: How to Create a Mini-city Invasion Scene From Cardboard and Tape!

Hi, this is my very first instructable! In this I will teach you how to make a mini-city invasion from cardboard and tape primarily. It is a very simple tutorial starring Wally, the bearded dragon, he is around a year old and very friendly. (P.S. For those of you who complete this instructable, please post your photo in the comments!)

Hope You Enjoy!!!

Step 1: Getting Started

For this project you will net the following materials:

2 large cardboard boxes

Black electrical tape or black duct tape

2 large pieces of thin cardboard paper

5-15 plastic toy soldiers

Toy cars (optional)

Camera (Optional)

Lizard, small dog, toy dragon or toy lizard

Step 2: Building the Set

Lay down the cardboard paper on the ground, then put the boxes on either side. Then, on whatever side of the box you want tape the other piece of paper to the boxes. Use the tape to create a road on the paper, after that, position your soldiers any where you want. Place the cars anywhere you want, flip them to the side and upside down and etc. It should look something like the picture on this page.

Step 3: Showtime

Put your pet on the scene and record or take pictures! Try using different filters and settings.

Hope you enjoyed!

    This is hilarious. I would love to do this, but I don't have a bearded dragon or other reptile(well, my brother has a yellow-bellied slider(a kind of turtle), but that wouldn't be as scary)...

    A turtle would be neat. I encourage you to try. If you do, please post a picture of it!

    Wow, those little soldiers look to be in serious trouble. Nice job. I'm not sure how this would work with my rottweiler but, wouldn't that be something.
