Cardboard views by MaboroshiTira Cardboard views by MaboroshiTira
Ok. so here is the whole thing. All of the buttons are pushable. The on and off switch moves, and the volume dial turns.
I also made a removable game cartridge.

Yup. that's that. Done with cardboard for a long time.

EDIT: Oh my gosh guys...I am literally in tears. I never thought this would get so many views and favorites. And even end up on the front page! Thank you all so much. I can't even. This is really something i never thought would happen. ;A;

EDIT AGAIN: Aww, thanks for the DD!

The suggester says: It's a HUGE cardboard gameboy! It looks like it took forever to make and it is detailed down to the smallest feature. It even has a giant cardboard game pack. Cardboard views by ~MaboroshiTira ( Suggested by Know-Kname and Featured by maytel )

I wanna do a cardboard thing now. no idea where to start though. what made you want to do the giant cardboard game boy?

It started out as a class project. We had to take an object, scale it up, then build it out of cardboard. I chose a game boy for the nostalgia factor. It's an object that is well recognized by most people and also means something to me on a personal level.

Reply
:iconmaboroshitira:
MaboroshiTira Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2013  Student
Yup! I almost ran out of time to make it too. 
I literally made it the day before the project was due. Only because i had promised my teacher i would have one. 

And unfortunately my teachers don't always tell us what our grades are on projects. And since it was the last one of the semester, i didn't have time to ask. But i assume i got an A, my teacher loved it. So yeah. c:

Thank you!
And personally, i think adding paint would take away from it. 
It would completely lose the cardboard feeling...which was the whole point of this project. c:

O_O share your cardboard crafting magic....please. lol...but really, do you think you could write up a guide on how you did this? I have a ton of cardboard boxes laying around taking up space and I think making something as awesome as this out of them would be kickass and very green. Otherwise they'll just be tossed in the recycling bin again...which is good but I would love to use them for something.

This was my first time working with cardboard and also working at such a large scale. I wish i could tell you how i did it, but it was mainly trial, error, and A LOT of measurements. I measured every part of my gameboy than just scaled it up. Sorry i can't be of more help. I have process pictures on my tumblr in my art tag. They are a few pages back if you are interested in seen them. [link]
