FOLDed and Argyle Fine Art present this special postcard edition Hollow Face Robot!
If you have one of these postcards, here is a video with detailed assembly instructions:
Just in time for Christmas, it’s the newest FOLDed: Robot Reindeer. Robot Reindeer is available now from Argyle Fine Art in Halifax.
Before you begin you might want to view the “Getting Started” page for tips and suggestions.
1) Cut out the body, head, and tail sections carefully along the solid black outlines. DO NOT cut along the dashed fold line.
NOTE: There is a short cut just under the jaw on the left side of the head that is easy to miss. This cut allows for the front of the neck to be folded over.
2) Cut slits along the five solid white lines. This step is easier if you use an x-acto or other craft knife.
3) Pre-fold along all the dashed lines. Accurate folding will make assembly much easier.
4) Let’s start with the body section. Insert tab A into slot A and then tab B into slot B.
5) Fold the tail along the dashed line if you haven’t already and insert tab Z into the unmarked slot at the back-end off the body. After inserting the tail, you can spread the two Z tabs apart inside the body to help prevent the tail from falling out.
7) Now you are ready to attach the head to the body by inserting the X and Y tabs into the X and Y slots on the top of the body.
And that’s it! You now have a fully assembled Robot Reindeer. Enjoy!
After much trial and error I have finally designed a FOLDed rocket that I like. The trick was making a shape that was interesting but not too difficult to fold. I think this design is a nice balance. There are two versions of the rocket, Rocket Red 5 and Rocket Blue 2. These instructions apply to both versions.
Before you begin yo might want to view the “Getting Started” page for tips and suggestions.1)
Carefully cut out the rocket. Cut along the solid black outlines, DO NOT cut the dashed fold lines.
2) Carefully cut slits indicated by the white lines.
3) Fold along all the dashed fold lines.
4) Now the for the fiddly part. Carefully, and with patience, close the shape by inserting the tabs into their corresponding slots. A into A, B into B, and so on.
I found it easier to do the sides first and the bottom last.
This is the shape you are going for. Essentially it is two three-sided pyramids with fins.
And that’s it! Let me know how it went for you.
What’s making all that noise in the alley? It’s Rusty, the trash eating robot! Rusty loves nothing more than crunching up all the metal trash he can find. Paint cans, old bicycles, and rusty nails are just a few of his favorite snacks. Rusty is a little rough around the edges, but he’s very loyal and makes a great pal.
