Arcade Machine Papercrafts

Neat arcade machine papercrafts that you can do!

Ever wanted to have your own arcade shop? Of course you did. Now you have the chance! These cutouts may be made of paper and not from actual circuit boards but at least they’re more fun to look at than the images we can only see on our computer screens or magazines.

Papercrafts aren’t just about making the basic scrapbooking stuff like flower cutouts. They’ve come a long way in providing amusement to people who appreciate them, and these intricately-designed arcade machines are living proof.

Below are papercraft designs that computer, video game, and sci-fi enthusiasts will truly love. Are you a big Street Fighter Fan? You can make your own machine that looks exactly like the one from the early 90’s. If you love Pac-Man (which you do), you can also find a design for that! There’s even a template for making an arcade-like slot machine. Arcade-inspired slots are getting pretty popular, so it’s a good idea to make papercraft versions as gifts for people who appreciate them!

The papercraft templates look complicated but they’re really not. All you have to do is use a very sharp cutter or pair of scissors, and follow the fold patterns. Make sure that your printer can print the littlest of details, though, and your printouts are scaled to fit the paper size.

Like them? They’d make any room colorful and happy! And they’re really fun gift ideas. I think we can all agree personalized gifts are better to give and receive than something generic and store-bought.

Now get to cutting and folding!
