My stepson is a big Minecraft fan. He saw a cardboard "Steve head" that could be purchased online. I thought I could make one instead and decided to make a diamond pick-axe to go with it Cheesy

What do you think?

That's so fabulous, it totally looks like someone 'shopped some pixel-y images onto a photo!  Grin

The head was pretty easy. I just covered the box with paper, drew on a grid and started painting. I didn't have that many shades of paint so I mixed colours together to get a bunch of them.
I put a couple pieces of really thick corrugated cardboard inside the head so it would sit correctly on his head and his eyes would actually line up with the eye-holes.

The pick-axe I drew onto the same thick corrugated cardboard so that the pixels would be the same size as the ones on the head. Then I cut it out with an X-acto. I had to glue a strip of paper around the the edges so they would have straight sides (otherwise you'd see the corrugated part of the cardboard).

It was fun. I wonder what else I can make this way:)
