Remember popples? Those cute plush toys from the 1980’s that were brightly colored and folded in on themselves to form a weird ball of animal parts? Yeah those things. So that’s why I’ve dubbed this model the popple because well, it looks like one.
I used the Wausau Astrobrights series for the entire design. It’s good strong paper and produces a sturdy but lightweight model. Since the paper was letter sized, I used the die-cut machine to fashion 120 custom rectangles from four different colors. From there, it was relatively easy to burn through all 120 units in a short amount of time since they are all identical. My process involves forming an assembly line where a single fold is performed back-to-back on all 120 units before advancing to the next. It works, try it!
