Our Xmas Tree 2011 by Skele-kitty Our Xmas Tree 2011 by Skele-kitty
Some very kind anon provided this large Invincibility Star for Christmas on a papercraft image board, and it inspired me to make some Nintendo-related baubles for our tree. This is by no means an original idea, but it is one that I've been wanting to do for about three years now. So now that I have a bit of free time, I thought that I would indulge my children, who had a blast decorating our tree.

All of the blocks are scavenged from the internet - from the Cubeecraft website and also from here at DeviantART - with the exception of some of the mushrooms (which I quickly recoloured in Photoshop). I think there are about 30 cubees hanging here, and all of them are Nintendo (mostly Mario-related) except the two companion cubees.

Just too amazing! I put two Eevee papercrafts in my tree last year, but this takes it to a whole new level xD Totally doing this next year! What did you use (and how did you attach it) as a hanger for the crafts?

Thank you :D
- I cut thin strips (4mm x 30mm)
- I folded the strips in half and placed an elastic rubber band in the fold, then glued the strip together.
I constructed the cubees (omiting the insert tabs and edited the fold tabs), gluing it together except for the top-side.
- I then cut a single 5mm vertical slit in the center of top of the cubees.
- I slid the end-side of the folded strip (containing the band) into the printed side of the slit and pulled it through, until the rubber band meets the surface of the cubee, then glued the ends to the inside of the surface before I closed the cubee up.
Does that make sense?
