How To Build your Reptoid Papercraft

You will want the following items prior to starting:

Printer, Cardstock, Scissors, Soft bristle paintbrush, Glue and small cup to put it in, Exacto knife is good to use also if you prefer.

Once you have amassed all of those items, print the sheet and follow the instructions below to papercraft.

Skin Sheet

The sheet containing the skin is a traditional papercraft cutout.

Begin by cutting the pieces out. I recommend that rather than trying to work with the entire sheet at a time that you cut out the individual pieces in crude circles before actually cutting along the lines; it makes it easier to do strange angles on more complex models. Cut along the outside black lines until you have each part individually freed.

On each model, fold the flaps that are sticking out of the side of most faces. After the flaps are folded, fold down the edges of each individual face so that you can connect the piece as a rectangle; note that the helmet requires special maintenance, as will be explained near the end. Once you have everything folded, you can begin to glue the pieces together.

Proceed to apply glue onto the paintbrush and brush the edges of a flap, bringing the flap to the part it should be glued to. Hold the piece to the flap for at least 10 seconds before letting go, else it may drift and get stuck in the wrong spot! On the skin, it is easier to fold the far edges of the "front" face together, so that you can simply press the top & bottom faces down onto the flaps of the front/sides with little effort.

Once you have the pieces all connected, you can begin gluing the separate pieces to each other to form your Minecraft figure. Position them in whichever way you want; I won't go into advanced things, like making the limbs move. Gluing them together is sufficient for this tutorial. If you're printing weapons, be sure to make one of the arms open so you can place items in its hands!
