Pokemon's Goodbye by Skele-kitty Pokemon's Goodbye by Skele-kitty
So I disposed (squished) of my Paperpokč collection, as I needed the space for books on my shelves, and the models were becoming a health hazard (dust and more dust).

Only half of them would fit on the table; and it looked so funny, that I took a photo. Now my noes itches and I can't stop sneezing, but at least my office looks much cleaner and neater!

I did keep a handful of them, the ones that have the most sentiment to me, like Lapras, Snorlax and all the Gengars, but the rest are balls of paper in a big black bin liner waiting for the garbage truck to pick them up next recycling day.

Don't cry - they had a good life ;)

Wow - this has opened my world to a whole new paper-folding art! I'm really impressed! (I'm also impressed you squished them as was necessary - I'm sure I would have found some way to... hang them from the ceiling or some other horrible alternative, haha)

Thank you. I think that at some point you can only keep so many paper crafts before you have to bite the bullet and give them up, otherwise it gets out of control!

That's probably because you used regular printer paper. Ideally, you should use at least 150gsm paper for papercraft - it has a better structural integrity. But A+ for effort.

Hahaha! Ok, so paper is measured in weight, but this is not actually true, it's more like thickness/density, but for all intensive purposes, lets call it weight. Standard printer/photocopy paper is 80gsm (grams per square meter) and for printing or copying, it's perfect.

However, for constructing something 3-dimensional, it is too thin and flimsy. So What you need to do is find some thicker paper, of about 150gsm. This is kind of an in between thickness/weight - not regular paper or cardboard. You'll find it will go through a household printer relatively easily, and it will give you the structural strength required to make a papercraft construction not go all floppy.

I hope that makes sense and helps you. Depending on where you live, you should be able to find a reem at your local stationery retailer (Staples in the US, or Officeworks in Australia)

:cries: B-but maybe you could've donated them to, I don't know, a children's hospital as decorations. Or something.

They all look great. :) So sad that you had to get rid of so many.

Donating paper models to children is like donating matches to pyromaniacs - it never ends well. Trust me, I have kids, and all the models I've ever given them are shadows of what they use to be. But I like where you're coming from. Besides, they were all so dusty, I'm sure they'd be more of a health hazard than anything.

Thank you. I know, but in the words of someone wise "just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming ..."

True. Eh, I didn't mean for it to be entirely serious anway. I just had an image of them sitting on a window looking cute and maybe making children smile. :)

You're welcome.
