Free Life Sized Minecraft Diamond Pickaxe Cut Out Papercraft Template

Being a big Minecraft fan myself I really wanted  my own life sized diamond pickaxe, and I'm sure I'm not the only one!
You could buy a foam life sized pickaxe over at Jinx, but if you haven't got $32 spare then a free papercraft pickaxe printable template is the next best thing.
Why spend out and wait for it to be delivered when you can create your own life sized Minecraft diamond pickaxe using papercraft and have it the same day.

The Minecraft life sized pickaxe template had to be spread over four sheets of A4, 297x210mm/ 11.7x8.3" printing paper because the template cut out just would not fit on 1 sheet of standard printing card.

What to do...

Click template image to bring up new window then Right click and save all templates.  Print out all four life sized diamond pickaxe papercraft templates.  Its a good idea to use card when printing, I used A4 160 gsm card for the wood stick to give it a matt finish and inkjet photo paper for the diamond pick head for a glossy finish.

Carefully cut around the life sized pickaxe.  TAKE YOUR TIME and  DO NOT cut off the tabs on the sides of the Minecraft pickaxe, they are important!

Fold all corners of your papercraft pickaxe cut-out template.  Tabs should always be folded inwards.
Glue or tape your Minecraft life sized pickaxe together using the tabs!

Special thanks to my wife for cutting, folding, gluing and hand modelling.

Enjoy and have fun.
