…Folding paper can be fun?

Here’s a few projects for you paper folders:

Paper Train Whistle

The first is a working train whistle made entirely out of household materials (printer, paper, thicker paper, white glue, scissors, and a razor edge).

To make the whistle, just print the paper parts, fold, cut, glue, and after 3 hours (drying time) you’ll have your very own playable paper train whistle.

NetFlix Origami

The second is an entire site dedicated to origami that you can make from the tear-off flaps that come on NetFlix wrappers.

Though traditional origami usually requires squares of paper, each of these designs has been adapted so that you can use the rectangular NetFlix flap without alteration.

Using the sturdy and colorful flaps, you can make your very own swan, frog, box, shirt, heart, tray, crab, sack, cube, envelope, bullet plane, glider, and dive-bomber.

Just watch out for the paper cuts.

…Cubeecraft lets you fold your own toys?

Cubeecraft

Cubeecraft is a site that features a new cube based papercraft toy/character each week.

Each toy is designed with interlocking tabs, so there’s no need for tape, glue, or other adhesives, and you simply print, cut, and fold your way to a cute and fun paper toy.

…The Disposable Film Festival will change movie making?

The Disposable Film Festival

The Disposable Film Festival celebrates the artistic potential of disposable video: Short films made on non-professional devices such as one-time use video cameras, cell phones, point and shoot cameras, webcams, computer screen capture software, and other readily available video capture devices.

    Everyone has become a Disposable Filmmaker: directors of Saturday night cell phone videos, actors under the eyes of security cameras, and narrators before their webcams. Let’s face it – we live in an age of disposable film. Now it’s time to do something creative with it.

As new media and the rise of online distribution continue to change the video landscape, the Disposable Film Festival serves to highlight some of the best work currently being made, and hopefully inspire the growth and development of future work as well.
