If you have never experience making paper crafts, this is the place for you! First, I'd advise everyone to download this program: Pepakura Designer
OS : Windows2000/XP/Vista
CPU : PentiumII 200MHz
RAM : 64MB
Monitor : 16bit/High Color, or greater
After you have this program, it enables you to view 3D material like paper figurines and also gives you easy instructions on how to glue it together. This program ONLY works with .pdo files which is a bummer because a LOT of paper crafts use .pdf files.
The place to get these .pdo and .pdf files is at this awesome website:
If you are a Nintendo fan, download .pdo and .pdf files from this neighbor website:
And here is a website with all .pdo files to view on Pepakura Designer:
If it doesn't have a Data section on the table then try going to the URL instead. But every Data section has the download which makes papercrafting much easier!
The Easiest Way to put together Paper Crafts
After you have fully printed out the sheets needed to make your paper craft (best to use thicker paper), cut it all out and follow the instructions on where to fold the paper (by looking at the dotted lines). After that's finished, start on one section of the figure and follow the instructions on what part is glued to the other... and to get the best quality and easy to work with glue, use Elmers and put the glue on using a toothpick (this leaves less of a mess and doesn't leave the paper soaked with glue). And that's all you really need to know about making papercrafts!
P.S. You need Adobe Reader to view .pdf files.

Also with the thicker paper it helps a lot to take an xacto knife and score the bending lines. Also using an xacto knife to cut it out is a lot easier too. You can cut it out with scissors roughly first to make it easier to manage though.
