*Present me slaps past me on the back of her big, fat head*
I’ve spent the last week browsing the internet for paper models and I just can’t believe the amazing work that is out there. It all started when I read a post on geekcrafts.com about Gus Santome, a talented paper model designer who shares his works on his blog minipapercraft.blogspot.com. When I saw his super cute Disney and Star Wars dolls, I couldn’t resist. I fired up the printer, found my craft blade and got down to work.
Unfortunately this is what happened. Poor Ursula. Using a dried up glue stick, in hindsight, was not a great idea.
My next two attempts held up a little better.
Darth Vader and the Evil Queen from Snow White. Anybody else thinking Villain Wedding?
I’ve also started on a TARDIS by MikeHungerford. (Is my geek showing?)
And plan to make a WALL-E one day …
And maybe a Ghostbusters Headquarters. (How awesome is this?!)
But I think making this paper model of Howl’s Moving Castle is only something I can dream about – hmm, maybe I could have a go at crocheting it ;)
It’s not a forgiving craft – precision is everything – and it does test your patience but seeing what can come from it … well, it’s pretty exciting.
Till next time …
