1) Material & Tools Required (FIG- A) :- It's very simple to make 3d paper craft models and you need very few tools (total cost may be less than Rs 400/=)
i) Small & Medium size scissors (Hobby knife).    & straight knife
ii) Tweezers with smooth edges
iii) White glue
iv) Pen, Pencil, Scale, Compass etc.
v) One sheet each of 10-12 types / color

  3d Paper craft is very simple but it requires a lot of patience and time. You have to move step by step.

Basic tips 3d Paper Craft Models - 3d models :
a) Decide the symbols, which you will be using while making developmental drawings. I suggest

     Mountain folds      with a dashed line (---------)
     Valley folds with a dot line (.......)
     Cut line with solid line (______)
    cut outs (portions to be cut) with hash (//////)
    glue portion with star mark (*****).

b) Divide the model in main section. e.g. for making a Motor Cycle :- Front wheel, Rear wheel, Seat, Handle, Engine, etc.
c) Divide main sections into sub-sections. e.g. Front & Rear wheel :- Tyre, Rim, Spokes, Bolts etc.
d) Cut out individual pieces
e) Use glue in a very low quantity. Please note that joints with excess glue are often week.
f) For making different shapes like Cylinder, Curved piece, Angle, etc. there is a simple and universal style, e.g. for making a curved piece, you require a small cut in the piece and then slightly overlap and glue. (We have tried to cover almost all the basic shape in our next section of 'Step by Step making')
