How do you take an iconic, pixelated dinosaur and transform it into a three-dimensional paper craft activity? I was tasked with this project to design paper models of the dinosaur and cactus, that could be constructed from the heavyweight card stock at the bottom of gift bags. It had to be simple and fast enough for most ages.
I drew inspiration from the paper craft figures that I used to build for fun in my spare time. By creating cross sections at specific locations for structure, they also gave the model a unique, skeletal appearance. The next big challenge was
to arrange the pieces efficiently within a rectangular sheet.
