So, I've taken up to paper-crafting. It started with making those box-shaped ones of characters I love a year or two ago, and then it progressed a bit to the point where I picked up the optimal cutting tool (your basic x-acto knife) and some craft glue and really sat down to make some more ambitious ones. So, instead of retreading through some of my trial-and-errors, I figured I'd post my newest (and video-game related) one here. I present Zelda from Spirit Tracks:
So, maybe you think that's pretty cool (and thanks! say so below!) and you'd like to try your hand at it! GO FOR IT! Now, it's reccomended to use thicker card-stock-esque paper to make it hold up better, but, even though it's tougher, I just use plain ole' printer paper (but upgrading is next on my list). I use Elmer's Craft Bond All-Purpose Glue dabbed on some paper and apply it with a very small flat-headed screwdriver (as in one small enough to use on a pair of glasses). I also cut on various pieces of cardboard with the previously mention X-Acto knife. That seems to work for me. Now, this one is a bit tough to assemble and there is barely any kind of instructions rather than numbers, so it's a bit of a 3-d puzzle, as well. But that made it all the more fun for me. ANYWAY. Right. The link. The reason you even began to read this boring (maybe insightful) paragraph:
Big ups to Lyrin for making this awesome model. It was a blast and a pain to assemble.
