1. Create a template
Use the 3DCG software create the template of cardboard art. I am using MODO. Great 3DCG software, I love it. I know this is the most difficult part. Paper art templates are available for purchase at Nothing But Polys (free templates are also available).
If you use the paper art template to make cardboard art using the method described on this page, please cut the glue edges.
