Make something with your breakfast before you eat it.
By the time I read today’s inspiration, I had already eaten breakfast (a couple of pieces of toast and a nectarine).
Rather than miss a day, I figured that it was time to bend the rules again. I initially thought that I would recreate my entire breakfast in papercraft, but then decided to just focus on one element of it: a nectarine.
I’ve previously use multiple scans to produce papercraft versions of real objects, but I’ve noted that cutting an object before scanning it might yield better results. Bearing that in mind, I peeled a nectarine so that the surface would lay flat on the scanner:
I then scanned it (covering sections with white paper to improve the colour reproduction – hopefully) and cut it out with some improvised tabs:
Then it was a matter of using double-sided adhesive tape (an a handy applicator) to roll up the side and hold it in a 3D shape:
Finally, it was ready to join the fruit basket. 🙂
Here are all the process shots:
I did eat the nectarine at the end. The real one, not the papercraft version.
