How to Make a Crazy Checkerboard

  • Two pieces of differently colored paper (1 piece 8 x 8 inches, 1 piece 8 x 10 inches)
  • Transparent tape
  • 8 x 10-inch cardboard
  • Cardboard scraps

1. Fold the 8 x 10-inch sheet of paper in half, bringing the 8-inch sides together. Cut 7 slits, 1 inch apart, from the folded edge to within 1 inch of the other edge. Cut out eight 1-inch-wide strips from the 8 x 8-inch piece of paper. Unfold the first sheet of paper.

2. Weave the paper strips through the slits from left to right. Weave over and under the slits. If you started by weaving the first strip over the first slit, weave the second strip under the first slit, the third strip over the first slit, and so on. This will create a checkerboard.

3. When you have woven all 8 strips through the paper, make the ends of the strips even and straight. Carefully turn the checkerboard over. Place transparent tape along the left and right sides of the checkerboard to hold the strips in place. Turn the checkerboard right side up, and glue it to the cardboard.

1. Look closely at the pattern in the picture below. Use your ruler and pencil to draw an 8 x 8-inch square on the cardboard.

2. The heavy black lines are the cutting lines. Cut along the cutting lines.

3. If you'd like, you can decorate your tangram -- color each piece a different color, create different patterns on each one, or whatever you like. (NOTE: It is easier to color or decorate your tangram puzzle before you cut it apart.)

3. Try to re-create the design shown here. Then invent new shapes of your own. Trace the outside shape of your new designs, and challenge friends and family members to arrange the tangram pieces to match your designs.

Here, we show you how to make a puzzle game using paper that can keep your kids busy for a few hours.

It’s a simple game that can be made using paper and a few basic supplies at home. So let’s see how you can make it at home.

Before getting into the tutorial I would appreciate it very much if you will check out our Youtube channel and subscribe to it. We add easy craft tutorials every week.

Some of the links in this post are affiliate links, which simply means that if you happen to purchase something, I get a small commission at NO extra cost to you.  

Materials Required:

To make this paper puzzle, you need

– Origami sheet OR any square paper of size 15 cm

– White paper

– Pencil, Ruler, Scissors and Glue

– Black Marker Pen

– Oil pastels or Color markers

How to make a Picture Puzzle Game step-by-step

Step 1: folding the puzzle.

How to make a paper puzzle game at home

1a. Take a square sheet of size 15 cm. Here we are using an Origami sheet. You can use color papers used for crafts or even white paper.

1b. Fold the paper diagonally (from right to left) to join the opposite corners and make a crease. If you are using an Origami sheet, make sure the coloured part of the paper is inside while folding.

1c. Unfold.

1d. Now, fold the paper diagonally again (from left to right), this time to join the other two corners. Make a crease.

How to make a paper puzzle game at home

1e. After making the crease, unfold the paper. Now what we need to do is to fold each corner into the centre of the paper, make a crease and unfold .

1f-1h. Here we have not shown the folding of all 4 corners as it is rinse and repeat. But I hope you get the idea. Again, what you need to do is:

Fold each corner into the center and, make a crease and then unfold. Do it with all 4 corners and then proceed to the next step.

How to make a puzzle out of paper

1i. In this step, we fold the paper to the center horizontally. Keep in mind that the paper is to be folded to the exact center. You can use the creases you made earlier as the reference.

1j. Fold the other edge to the center too.

How to make a puzzle out pf paper

1k. Unfold the paper.

1l. Now, repeat the same steps (1i and 1j) on the other side.

1m. Fold the parallel edges towards the centre and make a crease. Now, hold the paper puzzle vertically as shown in the picture and move onto step 1n.

How to make a puzzle out of paper

1n. After folding the edges horizontally, what we need to do next to make the paper puzzle is to fold the paper by making the creases we made earlier as reference.

1o. Start by keeping the paper in place with one hand and fold using the other hand.

Slowly fold the top portion of the paper towards the centre.

Use one finger to poke from the middle of the backside directing it towards the center . When you do this, you can see the paper moving along the creases we made earlier.

1p. The middle of the top edge is now folded towards the center. You can see it touching the centre.

1q. You can see two flaps pointing up in the picture 1q. In the next step we are going to flatten them down.

How to make a puzzle out of paper

1r. Bring both the flaps down as shown in the above picture.

How to make easy paper puzzles for kids step-by-step

1s. Rotate the paper puzzle by 180 degrees and repeat the same steps (1n- 1r) on the other side.

Step 2: Draw the pictures

How to make easy paper puzzles for kids step-by-step

In the second step of making the paper puzzle game, we are going to draw 3 pictures that are to be stuck on the paper puzzle.

Pictures can be anything – cartoon figures, animals, nature, etc. Here we drew three kawaii figures.

2a. Take a sheet of white paper. And keep the paper puzzle square figure we made just now, on top of the paper.

Trace the outline of the puzzle onto the white sheet. This is to draw the pictures inside the square shape and make sure they fit inside the puzzle.

How to make easy paper puzzles for kids step-by-step

2b. Draw the figures inside the square measurement we took just now. Draw two more figures of the same size and color them. Cut the figures out.

Step 3: Making the paper puzzle game

How to make a picture puzzle game

3a. In this step, we proceed to putting the puzzle together.

Take the cutout pictures. Take the first picture and paste it on the paper puzzle.

When you paste the picture, make sure the opening of the paper passes vertically beneath it.

Now we are going to cut along the opening. Make sure you don’t cut too much. Cut only upto the point where you can open the flaps fully.

How to make a picture puzzle game

3b. Open the flaps and and you can see the section with four openings.

Now take the second picture and stick it on this section. Like we did with the last picture, cut along the openings.

How to make a picture puzzle game

3c. Remember, there are four openings, so cut along on all four of them. After cutting, open all the flaps, and you get to the third section.

How to make a picture puzzle game

3d. Stick the third and final picture onto the next section and make two cuts along the openings.

This is it and the paper puzzle is ready.

Open the flaps different ways and make a game out of it.

How to Make a Paper Finger Game

The origami fortune teller, also known as an origami oracle game, is a classic game of childhood. With a few folds, you can turn a square of paper into a versatile paper game that has four hinged segments or "pockets" and four flaps that can fold up to reveal hidden messages. Kids can use the thumb and forefinger of each hand to play a rhyming game, by alternately opening the toy vertically and horizontally.

Things You'll Need

Square Sheet Of Paper

Fold the paper diagonally so that one pair of opposite corners meet. Unfold and repeat with the other pair of opposite corners. Unfold to reveal two folds forming an X shape that crosses in the center of the paper.

Video of the Day

Fold each corner of the paper to the center point.

Turn the paper over, leaving it folded. Fold each of the corners of the smaller square to the center point again, creating four flaps. Unfold the flaps and write one word in each of the eight small triangles that form the central square beneath the flaps. Close the flaps again.

Label the eight segments on top of the paper with letters. Fold the toy gently in half and stick your thumbs and forefingers into the four flaps on the underside of the paper, allowing four pockets to pop up around your fingers. Use different colors to color the outsides of the four pockets. (The pockets were the flaps on the underside of the paper.)

Choose a number and a color. Alternate between opening the toy horizontally and vertically, counting until you reach your number. Find the letter on the inside that lines up with your chosen color on the inside. Repeat with a new number and a new color, then lift the corresponding flap to reveal a word. Think of as many words as you can that start with the letter and rhyme with the word.

A paper fortune teller is a simple yet fun craft that creates infinite entertainment for you and your friends. All you need is a piece of paper, something to write with, and your imagination to come up with some fun and unique fortunes. Keep reading for step-by-step instructions to make your very own fortune teller and get ready to amaze your friends with your predictions!

Image titled Fold a Fortune Teller Step 1

  • If you're using a piece of rectangular paper, you can cut it into a square .
  • Use colored paper to make your fortune teller stand out.
  • Use construction paper to make your fortune teller more sturdy and less flimsy.
  • Make sure you’re folding so that the creases all remain on the same side. The raised edges should all be on one side of the paper, while the indents should all remain on the other.
  • If the paper doesn’t stay in place when you press it with your fingernail, then use the edge of a spoon or knife to run along the fold.

  • Each of the smaller triangles will be on half of a larger triangle. If you want to make their separation more obvious, draw a line along the crease between them using a marker or colored pencil.
  • You’ll meet the love of your life soon
  • You’re going to get a lot of money
  • You’re going to be happy
  • You’re about to get some bad news
  • You’re going to misplace something
  • If you don’t have colored markers, just write the name of the color on the squares instead.
  • Be careful when you’re folding the corners inwards since the paper could potentially rip if you’re too rough.
  • For example, if you chose the color red, you'd say "R" and open the fortune teller one direction. Then, you'd say "E" and open it the other way. Finally, you'd say "D" and open it in the other direction one more time.
  • If you picked an even number, the fortune teller will end in the same position. If you picked an odd number, you’ll see new numbers to choose from.
  • Keep playing the fortune teller until you reveal all of the fortunes.

About This Article

Ali Garbacz, B.A.

To fold a fortune teller, take a square piece of paper and fold it in half diagonally so it makes a triangle, then crease the fold. Unfold the paper, then fold it again diagonally the other way and crease that fold. Unfold the paper again and crease it vertically and horizontally as well. Lay the paper out flat, then fold in each corner of the paper so they meet at the middle of the previous creases. Flip the paper over. Fold all 4 corners into the center of the paper again. Now, fold in the flaps of your fortune teller. Your fortune teller is ready! Did this summary help you? Yes No

How to Make Paper Craft From a Game or 3d Model

license

Introduction: How to Make Paper Craft From a Game or 3d Model

How to Make Paper Craft From a Game or 3d Model

first sorry about my english it´s not my languaje The software needed A game using Direct X or a 3d model (in the web there’s a lot free)

3D RIPPER DX

Autodesk 3D Studio Max

or something similar like sketch up for work with files *.3dr and save as *.OBJ

Photoshop with Nvidia dds Plug in

or a software like DDS converter whit the ability to change dds textures to jpg or bmp files

Pepakura Designer and viewer this process need time but makes the paper craft you want and no one design If you chose to use a 3D model jump to step 2

If you chose to use a 3D model and don’t want any change jump to step 4

Step 1: Using 3D RIPPER DX

Using  3D RIPPER DX

Select the game you want to run, the game doesn´t start until you hit the launch button in 3D RIPPER DX in the options yo can change the capture key, the folder where all the files go when captured Note: try to find an environment with low amount of grafics

Green Arrow: search for the game (you can use Shortcut/Icon ) purple arrow: Folder were the files go when you ripp a game in the options you can change the key F12 for start the capture and enable the also capture the wavefront .Obj option (this option capture a *.Obj file but it´s better to work with *.3ds file

Image 2 I use the game Lineage II from NC Soft an old version for this tutorial

in the left corner show the words " ready to capture" in yellow that tell us the 3D RIPPER DX works correctly. when yo got in the screen what you want to ripp just hit the F12 key and the process start, it takes a few seconds or minutes (the time change because the environment you chose)

Step 2: Autodesk 3Ds Max

Autodesk 3Ds Max

i use Autodesk 3Ds Max 2011 but it work whit a lot of version

or you can use other software for work whit *.3ds files and export to *.Obj files but need some in game camera align or work whit the model for the correct size

when you import to Autodesk 3Ds Max pop up a menu, select the option whit numbers in the recommended value line this is a plug in from 3D RIPPER DX. Image 1

You need to remove all the environment you don’t want to work whit Sometimes the model you choose need some easy to learn work in Autodesk 3Ds Max like make two or three mesh only one mesh (helps a lot when you need to glue the parts) in this model the legs, hands, shoes and head isn´t part of the same mesh (image 1 show diferent colors), you can make a single mesh with this and make work whit Pepakura Designer a lot easy or move part of the model for a better view Image 2 show same color yellow in all the body (cuerpo) and use diferent textures Now need to be export like *.Obj file and its all the work whit Autodesk 3Ds Max Image 3 show the model with some parts inverted arround the correct model, this inverted parts can be used for the interior view and not see the white paper

Step 3: Photoshop

Photoshop

For this part yo need to instal the Nvidia DDS plug-in for photoshop. Autodesk 3Ds Max work whit *.Jpg, Bmp or *.DDS files but Pepakura Designer needs *.Jpg or *.Bmp files, can’t work whit DDS Files you need to open dds files and save in Jpg format or if you want to make some change in the texture for the paper craft model you can make it on Adobe Photoshop or just change the texture format from *. dds to *.Jpg with the ddsconverter software (free) Image 1 1 only open the *.dds format with the texture and save as *.Jpg Note: all the dds textures ara saved in (if you don´t change in 3D RIPPER DX) my documents/3D reaperDX/textures (C:\Users\Oficina\ Documents \3D reaperDX/textures)

Step 4: Pepakura

Pepakura

Pepakura Designer

Whit this software you can convert the 3d model to a plain paper.

First we need to open the *.Obj file, Pepakura Designer start working whit a Green bar and pop up this menu Image 1 , sometimes the design needs to be flip, the black part is the correct position without textures. the gray parts it’s the paper, in this case for a more detailed job we need this way because we don’t want double side view parts whit white paper Here i add the textures (setting /texture settings) in *.Jpg format and remove the edge lines (3D menu/ Show Edges) this give us an idea how´s the model seen wen finished Image 2 The next step is putt he cut lines the way we want to work the model (highly recomended) or click in the unfold button and set the size for the paper model but if you let the software cut alone the model, the software makes all the cuts the way of “less time” and make the model really hard to be assembled, you can always return from the unfold process with the same button and cancel the changes the software makes (try to work almost all the model)

If the model was worked in Autodesk 3Ds Max looking to errease the future troubles you can work really easy, you can turn off the parts you don´t need to see and get a relly good view of the parts you need to work

for start the cut progress you need to select the yellow cutter in the icon menu and touch the lines in the model (always think if the cut can be made, you can test unfolding the model)

the line colors can be change in setting /other setting / color

in this model the colors work this way

Orange for cut

Red for open edge (some times need to put flaps wen working the 2D design)

Dark Blue for edges with soft curve

Light blue for edges with a hard curve (need atention here)

Yellow for the texture body part Image 3

Image 4 Here all the cuts are finish Now use unfold and select the size you want the model (if you want to make more than one model of the same game check the scale) this model use scale 9 and the size is 420 mm (I make other lineage models and want the same size )

after using the unfold model all the model moves to plain paper 2D in the right side, the software avoid contact with other pieces but use a lot of paper sheets, you can check for additional flaps or move flaps for an easy work and can move the pieces for save some paper Image 5 Model after using unfold button, the model use 64 paper Sheets In the right side of the screen (the 2D design) you can move, rotate the parts or you can cut and paste for a better use of space or assemble options, and whit the flaps yo can change the side the flap is (to this part or the other part) or if you want to join together 2 parts (like the original 3D model the legs and the body isn´t the same mesh) yo can add flaps without conexion if needed Image 6 the same model after adjust the position in the 2D design now using only 9 paper sheets now you can export to a protected *.Pdo file or just save the file, i recommend to use Pepakura Viewer or Pepakura Viewer for Silhouette CAMEO (if you got one) for print and assemble because make really easy to identify the parts in the paper sheets and the 3D model. and for printing gives option like add numbers in all the flaps (only the flaps with conexion not the custom) print flaps whit the neighbor color (this help whit the errors) Image 7

Step 5: Pepakura Files

i let the files from the model (scale 9, 420mm of height) choose the better option for you and be patient this model dificult is hard because have a lot of small pieces and hard fold lines but i think all the people can do something if he likes with fold lines (L2FDE linea.pdo) without fold lines L2FDE (makes the finished work more clean) ready to unfold L2FDE exportar.pdo for make your custom size work Good Luck

All the hot news from Gamescom 2023

Supermassive are making Little Nightmares 3, but are sticking close to the series' DNA

Producer Coralie Feniello spills some extra beans on the cute horror sequel

Revealed last night at Gamescom 2023's Opening Night Live, we now know that Little Nightmares 3 is indeed a thing, coming in 2024. It's being made by Supermassive Games, who specialise in horror games (although not quite the same as the nitty-gritty childhood terrors style of Little Nightmares). Following the trajectory of the previous two games, Little Nightmares the third has two controllable protagonists, so you can play in co-op. It also has a tie-in podcast, to build out some of the Little Nightmares lore, a thing you might not have known existed.

I saw a little hands off demo, and spoke to producer Coralie Feniello, who told me that co-op was the most demanded feature from their community of players (though you can also play Little Nightmares 3 in single player, with an AI). "We already asked ourselves the question for Little Nightmares II, but it wasn't the right time for it," she said. "And now, working with Supermassive Games who had an extended knowledge of multiplayer, it really was the right moment to do it."

2021 saw original devs Tarsier moving on to new projects , perhaps with a gentle shove in the small of the back from new owners Embracer Group. Bandai Namco retained Little Nightmares, though, and have regurgitated it like a big mummy bird right into the open mouth of Supermassive, what do all those slasher-movie style games like The Dark Pictures Anthology and The Quarry . The Little Nightmares 3 co-op is online only with your friends, so only players on your friends list, but you also get a friend's pass, so you can still play with a pal if they don't have their own copy of Little Nightmares 3.

The characters you play as, Low and Alone, are once again a couple of little children, and the co-opery comes from Low having a bow and Alone carrying a wrench. Puzzles will require them to use their different tools - Alone might have to smash a wall, for example - as well as operating levers or giving each other a leg up. Feniello says balancing this required a lot of iteration, testing whether you should be able to run if Low has the bow readied, and that kind of thing. The footage shared showed a mixture of using these new items, but also some puzzles fans will recognise, like sneaking past a giant eye looking for you by hiding in shadows, or synchronised jumping on a stuck trap door to get through it.

It also just kinda looks like Little Nightmares, right? Which is a good thing. I don't think Supermassive are trying to reinvent the wheel here, and Feniello said that Supermassive are "checking each detail from the previous ones to make sure that we have the same kind of vibe." It does look, like most sequels, a bit expanded. Little Nightmares 3 is set in a place called The Spiral, a "cluster of dystopian lands built upon disturbed delusions". The segment of gameplay shown took place in the Necropolis, a dusty stone ruin stalked by a giant infant called Monster Baby. "For us, the important thing is to find what are people's internal childhood fears," said Feniello, and explained that because everyone, even on the team, has their own fears, there's still things left to explore.

The Monster Baby looks down an alley and tries to catch Low and Alone in Little Nightmares 3

The playtime is not, Feniello told me, actually fixed right now, but she said that she feels this time they're pushing more into showing exteriors and wider locations. "Each place is very different in the game. We have several locations which have several enemies, several stories, several secrets," she said.

Finiello mentioned the lore of the world of Little Nightmares. In game nothing gets much exposition, and you can go the whole way just thinking "welp, this is all a bit odd, isn't it?" - but the concepts and locations are concrete, the characters have clearly been designed with a purpose. For Little Nightmares 3 things are going multi-media - something Bamco have experimented with before with Unknown 9, a game that was announced in 2021 with a comic, a book trilogy and a podcast, and which I've not heard hide nor hair of since.

Little Nightmares' podcast, The Sounds Of Nightmares, is a six parter fictional series telling the story of a girl named Noone, living in a psychiatric unit in the real world of Little Nightmares (the games take place in the nightmarish Nowhere). Each episode will feature a discussion of a childhood fear framed as a session with a counsellor, written by a different writer. One idea was even contributed by a member of the community.

Despite all this, Feniello confirmed that Little Nightmares 3, like the previous two games, is basically standalone in that you don't have to play the others to understand it. I would though, because they're very good, and I hope this one is too. Feniello, who worked on the second game, told me it's important to them to keep the Little Nightmares DNA very present. We will find out if they're right when the game comes out in 2024 - although the first two episodes of the podcast are out right now, if you want an earlier taste.

Trump’s booking photo in the Georgia jail.

From mugshot to mugs and memes: Trump picture fuels internet frenzy

Users had fun after Republican frontrunner became the first former American president to sit for a mugshot

First came the mugshot. Then came the mugs. Then the shot glasses.

Following Donald Trump’s surrender at the Fulton county jail on Thursday evening, the highly anticipated mugshot of the former president spread swiftly across the internet as both ends of the political spectrum raced to commodify and meme-ify the picture.

The Trump 2024 campaign was quick to print the president’s hostile glare on to merchandise including mugs, coolers and premium cotton shirts ranging from small to 2XL. Accompanying all the new mugshot merchandise, which also included a 4in x 4in vinyl bumper sticker, were the words: “NEVER SURRENDER!”

The face of the first former American president to sit for a mugshot also found itself on shot glasses being sold by the Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump Republican group.

For $15, customers can purchase a glass with Trump’s mugshot. On the back is “FAFO”, the acronym for “Fuck Around and Find Out”. The Lincoln Project also offered a combo deal, for those looking to purchase glasses featuring co-conspirators John Eastman, Jenna Ellis, Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell and Mark Meadows, all of whom had their photos taken at the Atlanta jail this week.

Claude Taylor, a former Bill Clinton White House staffer now chair of the liberal political action committee Mad Dog Pac, released his own merchandise: a steel mug featuring Trump’s mugshot and the words, “CRIMINAL DEFENDANT”.

“This lightweight, powder-coated carbon steel, 16oz mug is perfect for camping, tailgating, picnics … oh, wait! Sorry. Perfect for PRISON!” the mug’s description read.

Some of the merchandise springing up after Trump’s surrender.

Independent sellers on Etsy joined in on the commodification, one seller releasing a T-shirt featuring multi-colored mugshots of Trump and other co-conspirators.

“DONALD TRUMP – THE RICO TOUR,” the shirt read , a tongue-in-cheek play on official merchandise from Taylor Swift’s Eras tour.

Another seller released made-to-order 3D-printed mugshot earrings with the option of 14K gold plated or stainless steel hooks.

“Your choice of Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, or Mark Meadows,” a description said.

Those not looking to make a buck from the mugshot chimed in on the internet frenzy.

A meme posted by “@texan_maga” on the platform formerly known as Twitter featured Trump’s mugshot with at least 18 guns pointed at his face, labeled “FBI”, “FAKE NEWS”, “DEMOCRATS”, “INDICTMENT”, “DOJ”, GLOBALISTS”, DEEP STATE”, FASCISTS” and “ANTIFA”.

“WE STAND UNITED WITH TRUMP!” the meme said.

A TikTok account called “@trumpmugshothahaha” posted an edited clip of Nickelback’s 2005 song Photograph, in which lead singer, Chad Kroeger, holds up a photo frame. Trump’s angry glare replaced the original photo as Kroeger sang: “Look at this photograph, every time I do it makes me laugh.”

The video, which by Friday lunchtime had been viewed more than 800,000 times, appeared to clap back at a meme Trump tweeted back in 2019, featuring a photo of Joe Biden, his son Hunter and Devon Archer, a colleague of Hunter who was labeled as a “Ukraine gas exec”. The video was removed from Twitter after a copyright claim from Nickelback.

A meme posted by “@TheWapplehouse” racked up nearly 25,000 likes. It showed Trump’s mugshot with what appeared to be an overlay of a microwave screen.

“What the chicken nuggets in my microwave see at 3am,” the caption read .

Another meme, posted by “@nagy_minaj”, featured an edited photo of Trump and Giuliani’s mugshots.

“My friend and I saw you from across the bar and really dig your vibe,” said the caption. In response, one user wrote : “This just triggered my fight or flight.”
