If you are planning to celebrate Back to the Future day this Wednesday I have compiled some heavy crafts just for you. I have found some great things you can make to give your day an extra BTTF feel. I hope you like the ones I have selected. None of these are by me.
The first section will be some great paper craft. I have always really enjoyed paper craft; the ability to create a model of almost anything (provided you have enough printer ink) is really exciting. I have found some of the best Back to the Future paper crafts that you can make very cheaply.
Marty McFly and Doc Brown Paper Craft
These great paper crafts of Marty and Doc were created by Panko451 on deviantart using the pattern created by Cubeecraft. Click the images to take you to Panko’s page where you can print off these great models. If you don’t know how to make a Cubeecraft watch the video below for a tutorial.
The next paper crafts are the various vehicles featured in the three films.
The most popular probably being the DeLorean. This DeLorean model is a fairly complex one compared to the Cubeecraft, but if you are up for the challenge it is definitely worth making.
You can also build your very own time travel train from the 3rd film. You can find both of these models at www.paperinside.com/delorean. All you have to do is download the parts and the instructions and any extras you would like.
The next paper craft is one created officially by Cubeecraft… the Hoverboard! It is so easy even I managed to make it. Heres mine:
If you like this and you want to build it, you can find the instructions here.
The next paper craft is an invitation you could send to anyone for any occasion, but I would recommend using it if you have a BTTF party.
You will be able to create one of your own by heading over to the Instructables page.
The last piece of paper craft you can print off is the You’re Fired!!! prop from the 2nd movie. This one takes no effort, but can be printed off on any piece of paper and cut out.
The next items are ones you can find on Instructables.
In the 2nd film, the Gray’s Sport Almanac is an important part of the plot; with tutorial you can make one for yourself!
This is a great guide on Intructables by NamedJohnny.
NamedJohnny also shows us all how to make a hoverboard on Intructables! Unfortunately it doesn’t work.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at some of the great projects you do. I am personally planning to do a couple of these. If you are chosing to do the easier projects or challenging yourself with the hard ones I hope you find them fun and encourage you to build your own items.
