Hello! I've been bored the last few days, so I started creating my own Minecraft Papercraft. When I looked around to see if anyone else was doing it, I was happy to see that there were a few threads about it. However, I was saddened to find absolutely no standardization to size, and very little work on it at all really. So i spent some time making a bunch of printable Minecraft Papercrafts!
Also, I will be adding more to this thread, assuming you guys actually like this. If not, I'll let it die.
Printer(paper & ink)(Cardstock is great, but I use regular standard printer paper)
Scissors(Kitchen Shears work best for me)
Some kind of glue
Exacto Knife/Razor(Optional for some papercrafts)
A cool place to put your finished creations
Step 1: Find the papercraft you would like to make from the list or another site/thread
Step 2: Print! Make sure your papercraft doesn't get cut in half on two seperate pages.
Step 3: Carefully cut out the image. DO NOT cut off the tabs(surrounded by black) on the sides of the image, they are important!
(If there are things that need to be cut out on the inside, like in the door papercraft, use an exacto knife or razor)
Step 4: Fold your papercraft however you're supposed to, should be made obvious with minecraft papercrafts.
Step 5: Fold the tabs the direction they should be folded. Tabs should almost always be folded inside the papercraft, there are rare exceptions like in the minecraft man's arm.
Step 6: Glue your papercraft together using the tabs! Be sure the glue dries on each tab before continuing.
GLUES THAT WORK:
Best for me: Fast Grab Tacky Glue
Any Tacky Glue
Elmer's(Put it on your finger and rub it onto the tab, do not use too much or you'll wrinkle the paper)
Step 7: If there are multiple parts to your papercraft, e.g. the minecraft player papercraft, glue them together correctly
Step 8: Enjoy, and especially show your friends/family. Papercrafts are awesome.
Please tell me if there are any errors in the papercraft images or problems that you run into. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them!
Also, additions to this thread are very much welcome! PLEASE KEEP IN MIND, this thread is about a Standardized Papercraft, so it would be very much appreciated if any additions to the thread are x800%. If your papercraft is cool and fits the criteria, I'll stick it on the front page of the thread and give you credit!
Furthermore, I have no working digital camera at the moment(girlfriend + toilet + =[). Any pictures of the papercrafts you've made are appreciated, and might make it on the front page!
I'd like to get in on some of this standardized action! give me the scale you used to re-size them and ill re-size my templates. then you don't have to worry about making the skeleton template xP
Hopefully this is still a somewhat active thread :/
If I wasn't busy with gaming, a Roblox project, and getting ready for Fall Quarter of college, I might try some of these. Maybe next week. I'm already pretty good at papercraft; so far, I've got a Goomba, Mario, Companion Cube, Sackboy, Portal security camera, and *FAILED* Portal Turret. Just wondering, what actual size are these? I know you said 800% is the pixel scale, but what print dimensions?
Protip 1: If you want to make a lot of blocks, try using Word to put multiple copies of a block template on one sheet of paper. Assuming the image preview is 1:1 print scale, it looks like maybe 2 or 3 blocks in 8.5x11" if you tweak the print margins. Also, SINGLE SIDED PRINTING. Nothing causes a papercrafter to facepalm faster than realizing you've got two pages of a template on the same paper.
Protip 2: If you're just doing a few of these for the lulz and don't want to wait for glue to dry (especially mass-producing blocks), tape can work in some situations, especially the large tabs. I did the entire Companion Cube (with the corner and edge 3-D details!) with just tape. On a related note, if you're using double-sticky to joint two components (like the Creeper head and body), try connecting them before you finish closing up a segment. Forgetting to do this is probably why I failed the Turret model. For really tiny details like the Pickaxe... you probably don't have enough sticky surface area for tape. Need a glue dispenser here!

Paper Minecraft: Legend of the Music Discs... is on hiatus until I get a new high-end gaming laptop! Episode 2-4: watch?v=Lk4TjTnUJYU
Well, its not ALL of the items, but pretty cool, i had to make things like obsidian or redstone, but overall its really cool.
Quote from A.I. »
It'd be nice to amass enough blocks for a serious construction using these templates. Instead of having fake temples and castles, I could have real fake temples and castles <3
I doing it right now :biggrin.gif: Not a temple or a castle, just a piece of 7x7 grass with 3x height and a tree on it. it'll have all (or nearly, i wont include wool or :DBlock:, lol) of the MC blocks. My printer just ran out of yellow ink cos of the leaves... I think ill make a blank sample and print lots of it and i'll replace the blocks that cannot be seen (like the bottom) and it wont consume that much... probably...
