What can i make with these paper strips?
13 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
Hexaflexagons. Look it up.
Quilling, I guess. Put it on drinking cups, straws, decorate your room etc
You don't need such a long strip for that. I like to make tiny flexagons out of any leftover bits of paper I have, but they have to be cut down to 2:1 ratio.
I think paper stars, weaving, or modular-to-strip conversions if you are daring are a better idea for strips like that.
Why did you put your paper in a bowl of vermicelli?

Feel free to post your collections, your works in progress, or your star hordes! You can find lots of inspiration in the old thread (http://boards.4chan.org/po/thread/515222) Remember /PO/ is a slow board so please don't bump the thread. I created the last thread over two years ago. Here's to two more.

>I have a paper shredder that cuts about the right length
What brand? I've been looking for a paper shredder that cuts in a workable width but all of the ones I've found were too thin.

Yep! It saves on printer ink to only have a half-design on it, since you won't see the inner white parts.
Typically it's easiest to use something like a wide-spaced paper shredder or a guillotine style cutter. Failing that, X-acto knives are pretty cheap and accurate. If you still have troubles with wonky edges after using those, try measuring the strips out on both sides with a ruler, and connecting the line between them to make an easier to follow guide.

Very beautiful collection you have there. The ones on the right are my favorites.

Here's my jar of glow-in-the-darks. I tried to get a picture of them really in action, but my camera couldn't pick up their light properly.
That same image inspired me to start folding as well, OP.

What should I use to solidify a papercraft? I was thinking about using a brush and white glue, or maybe a brush and clear polyester casting resin, or even just a clearcoat of spray paint. Anyone have any recommendations? Pic unrelated

Hello, I'm a first year architecture student,and I need to make a design that only folds. I've got the concept for what I want to do, but I don't know if it's possible to make it using folds only.

Thanks beforehand, and sorry for being a newfag.
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
Thanks. I asked a teacher if the design could be made and he said that nothing was impossible and showed me another design based on pentagons, and if that could be made, why mine could be not.
I really don't want to change the whole design, since I really thought a lot about the concept behind it, and it needs a frame, slopes, and a bottom to keep it all together.

Alternatively, the entire lower "bowl" section could be its own piece of paper and the outer square rim could be its own piece of paper as well
You might want to look at the techniques used for the following models:

(or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmHPt1XEK4Q )


Fold only one level, and try to make slopes instead of the straight, "vertical" walls.
Paper is flexible (though not stretchable), and given the proper variables, it can be forced into that shape. Think about dry seals. You may need to implement some proper tools for the work, like a jig and some kind of press. And probably moisten the paper a bit. Or maybe not, depending on the kind of paper you use. But it can be done. That is, as long as the paper's inherent properties allow it.
That looks great. I'll try to make it, to understand it the most I can.

Thanks for your response. The only hard part is that I'm working with lined board, so to make the folds, I need to use a xacto knife and use the part of the knife that isn't sharp, in order to don't get a messy and ugly fold.

Has anyone have a .pdo for a medieval armor?

No, it's not necessary, sorry.
Practically none of those download links work though.
Believe it or not, most people prefer to make these out of metal.


It's a Linothorax.

Since linen is technically the basic material for certain types of papers, it's paper. Kinda.
Those European knights from middle ages had awesome costumes,that looks just pure awesome!

Nice dubs.
where are the instructions/template for this?
I think /toy/ is a better option, they use to have a thread for plamo (plastic models), which is the weaboo word they use for this hobby.
