Papertoys Gremlins by Sercho. Mignons, attachants, espiègles, et… dangereux… ce sont les Gremlins !

Papertoys Gremlins by Sercho

Créatures poilues allergiques à la lumière, ces petits Mogwaïs sont désormais disponibles en papertoy ! C’est l’artiste Sercho qui s’est amusé à créer ces deux modèles très réussis. Même en papier, il est déconseillé de les exposer à la lumière, de les mouiller et de les nourrir après minuit. A vos risques et périls… Gremlins est un film culte réalisé par Joe Dante, sorti en 1984 et mettant en scène de petites créatures imaginaires nommées Gremlins. Un film en avance sur son temps avec une histoire simple mais bien ficelée. Pour capturer ces deux petits Mogwaïs, il ne vous reste qu’à cliquer sur le modèle de votre choix et télécharger le template associé. Si jamais votre climatiseur ou votre machine à laver sautent, si votre magnétoscope tombe en panne, avant d’appeler le réparateur, allumez toutes les lumières, ouvrez les placards et regardez sous tous les lits.

Partager. Papercraft. Tunnel Vision. I know you are invited to at least one wedding this summer.

Tunnel Vision

Bring your camera. This is a neat way to present a special wedding picture. It's an old paper trick call a tunnel card. I like to frame it in a shadow box and give it to the married couple. You might even get away with not having to buy one of those expensive items on their gift registry. Corbis Readymech Cameras. Paper Toys. The Art and Musings of Jack Hankins. Jet Plastic and Fonotune Last year I was invited by German designer Fabian Huebner of Fint design to provide work for 2 very exciting projects.

The Art and Musings of Jack Hankins

The first was to create a cover illustration and some logos for a new comic anthology that he is working on called Jet Plastic. I have included my logo and a sneak preview of the illustration here, but please head over to the site for more details on the project as well as a look at the other fantastic artists involved. The second project was to provide some paper toys to promote Fabian’s feature film Fonotune. Though it is taking me a long time, eventually there will be a toy for each of the 3 main characters in the film.

Chris actually runs a business called 701 Industries that makes parts for jet skis, which will hopefully help make sense of my illustration.

How To Make Bubble Paper/Art

It’s not the paper that does it. It’s the paintbrush. This means I’ll try just about anything to create original paper/art images using just about anything BUT a paintbrush. This latest experiment involved a bottle of bubbles and black ink. Easy origami. How-to make a character pinata. As promised, some time ago, here is the Pokemon pinata tutorial.

How-to make a character pinata

Yeah! I hear you all cry. At last! These instructions could work just as well for any character. It is the same technique I used for the Hello Kitty pinata. Apologies at the start for any 'moody' cardboard pictures, I got a little carried away! I hope this all makes sense, as I am a visual person and sometimes find it hard to write instructions.

Find a simplified picture of the character you want to make (in this case, Glaceon, one of the evolutions of an Evee, if you were wondering.) I drew the outline free-hand but you could photocopy the picture up to the size needed. (warning - gratuitous shots of cardboard ahead!) (mmm, arty.) Then cut out strips of cardboard roughly 10cm in width, enough to follow the outline of the shape. Using a glue gun, glue one side of the strip to the character shape. Fill the pinata with the goodies, make two holes at the top and thread some ribbon through. Stand back and admire your handiwork... Tutorial: Easy Tiny Envelopes. Guest tutorial by Ruth Bleakley I discovered this envelope making method completely by accident when pulling soggy rain-soaked mail out of my leaky mailbox - I had a total *eureka* moment when the envelope I gingerly opened up completely unfolded at the seams revealing an envelope "template" perfectly.

Tutorial: Easy Tiny Envelopes

I've seen many envelope tutorials online, some offer downloadable templates, some show fancy paper folding techniques and some suggest specific measurements to create your own D.I.Y. envelopes. I'm going to show you how to replicate any interesting envelope that you might already have, no measuring involved! Click below for the how-to: 1. Bruce Lee Paper Doll. Abigail Halpin: Mark Your Place. Because everyone and their brother makes a New Year's resolution to read more (yours truly included), here's something to help you out: a bookmark tutorial.

Abigail Halpin: Mark Your Place

You'll need cardboard (I used a leftover mailer), paint, a paintbrush, a pen and scissors. Trace the template onto your cardboard (full size = about 1 3/4 by 4 inches). Cut out, then carefully make a slit for both arms, slightly rounding out the hands once free. After you've cut out the figure, fill in features with a pen and add accents with paint. Let dry. To use, place arms over the page you want to mark, slipping the body a few pages behind. Cubeecraft - Free Papercraft Toys. Paper Foldables™ Papercraft Toys by Bryan.
