Step 1: Making a "Simple Face"
Let's make one of the most basic element of our MindCraft world, a "simple face".
A simple face", is a simply a flat square made from 2 cards. It is sturdy enough to make most objects but may be too flimsy if you wish to make taller structures or you want to make something that can support weight.
You can connect more faces to a simple face with "connectors".
A "connector" is simply a straight or bent card (at a desired angle) which connects 2 cards together.
Step 2: Making a "Support Face"
A "support face" is made of 3 cards which makes it much stronger than a "simple face"
You can use the "support face" to make taller, or sturdier structures to support weight.
Step 3: The Cube
Now that you have made a face, we will use 6 faces and 8 connectors to make a simple cube and from there on, you can build anything your heart's desire.
You can stack a bunch of cubes to make a pyramid as the ancient Mayan or Egyptian.
You can make Steve or Alex from MIneCraft.
You can make a ginger bread house with a little chimney, with a functional door and windows.
The possibilities are really endless.
