Introduction: Papercraft Nº1 - Flexo
Hi! Today I'm going to show you how to make a papercraft. For the ones who don't know waht a papercraft is I will explain.
A papercraft is a 3 dimensional sculpture made out of paper. It has some similarities with origami, but is more funny, complex and you can create beatifull and amazing things. You can print it in paper sheets at home and you cut the pieces and then you glue them all to create a wonderfull creation. There are simple ones and more dificult ones. There are cars, monuments, objects, characters from yours favourite videos games or movies and much more.
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
This first papercraft is very easy and it's from a collection called cubeecraft.
I'm going to give you the link so that you can print the templates.
- Paper ( to print)
- X acto knife or scissors
- Some kinf of surface that you can scratch ( to cut over it)
- Ruler ( if you need)
Step 2: Printing and Cutting
Start by printing the templates that are in the link that I gave to you.
Next you will want to cut them. I prefer to use an x acto knife.
If you feel necessity, use a ruller inorder to cut straighter lines
You should end up with something like what you can see above.
Step 3: Glue the Pieces
Now we are going to glue the pieces individually.
To facilitate the process yo can fold the edges, where you can usually se a thiny line.
This will ready up the areas tah will need glue, so that it's realy easy to do.
You start by gluing each peace separated and then you will join them all.
After you have each piece ready , go to the next step
Step 4: Finish It
Now that you have all the pieces, you can start joining them and create you papercraft.
It is very easy to understand where you have to glue each other piece and after that your piece of art will be ready
The pictures will help you in the process, but if you have any doubts, please send me a message and I will be very happy to help you.
I hope you like it and above all you have fun! This one is pretty easy, but with time you will get better and you will be able of doing really hard papercrafts.
