Yeah, this is what I’ve been up to for a few months now. It started off with the Storm Trooper and escalated to a full scale paper craft addiction. Hahaha!
I gave about 8 paper crafts away to my sister, cousin, niece and nephew, and friends. And some I made for myself, as you can see in the photo above. (There’s an additional two, but it’s not in the photo because I just finished it after taking the photo.)
The person who made the mini Avengers made new designs for X-Men and I’m so excited. I want to make those too. X-Men is my favorite Marvel comic. :D
The La (green smile-y) is from deviantArt. The hands bounces up and down when you flick it. It’s so cute. It’s like my real life emoticon for excitement. Haha!
The Tiki changes expressions when you move the tube inside.
As I was taking photos, my dog, Zara, came by and started sniffing around. She caused wreckage to my paper craft by poking her nose here and there. Iron Man and Loki fell. The Avengers 2: The Attack of the White Akita. LOL. She’s just so curious. Her expression on her third photo is like, “Mwahaha! Fear me little objects!”
Anyway, the last photo is the materials I used. (The paper craft on the mat is already done.)
- Cutting mat
- X-Acto knife
- Box Cutter (I didn’t cut off the old tip because I dulled it on a tile then I now use it for putting creases/scores on paper to make it easier to fold without actually cutting it.)
- Scrap cardstock from past paper crafts remains, I cut the paper to make squares. I use it to put glue on when I need to glue my paper crafts. It’s more of a glue placemat than anything else. And I didn’t want to was the cardstock just because I already got what I needed. Haha!
- Metal ruler. Because plastic can be cut by the knife, that’s why I use metal.
- Scissors are optional. I rarely use it.
- Glue. Some paper crafts need glue and some don’t. Any glue would be fine, I think. I only found mine in my sister’s room. :))
- Tweezers depends if there are slots to put other items to assemble the whole thing. Sometimes the space is too small to use your fingers, so tweezers are good.
