Cubeecraft: Paper Characters

Project Published 5/14/15 Last updated on 5/16/18

I first used cubeecraft for downloading and printing characters from their website and to display around my teacher desk. I quickly realized just how fascinated my students were by them. I started by implementing these little guys into my classroom/print shop safety lesson. After we went over guidelines for using exacto knives and print settings, I allowed my students to print, cut and fold their cubeecrafts. Then one day, I had a student ask if he could create his own character! Lucky for us, cubeecraft had a standard template to use. This would become one of the most popular projects in my class and it teaches students on many different design levels.

Check out the website to get an idea of what they have, and try it out for yourself first.

Then use the template attached to let your students design their own character!
