Papercraft Bulbasaur by Alecat Papercraft Bulbasaur by Alecat
Last weekend I caught a bit of crazy and decided to make a life-size papercraft Bulbasaur. Luckily, we hadn't taken out our recycling for weeks so there were lots of cereal boxes around for me to use.

Model from PaperPokes: [link]

Actually, a real Bulbasaur is supposed to be around 70cm tall, and this one's a bit under 50cm and looks quite reasonably sized. Bulbasaurs are huge, man.

For Bulbasaur I just did it in Excel, since it lets you have images go over multiple pages and it splits them up for printing. I also did some photoshop edits to try and get the lines only to print, since I wasn't using the colours anyway I didn't want to waste ink.

I did it outside of Pepakura - converted the files into images and scaled them up 300%. Then I printed them onto regular paper and pasted that paper to the cereal boxes. Had to take subdivide some of the pieces to make them fit onto the cardboard I had!

Thankyou :)
In a way, working at a larger scale makes a lot of the tricky folds much easier.
