How to Make a Minions Cardboard Cut Out at Home
The Minions Cardboard Cut-Out was one of the Coolest Pieces I have made. It was a Fabulous Photo Prop at Donte’s Minions Themed Birthday Party. The Kids loved getting their photo taken in the Minion. I wish I had take photos while I was creating this Master Piece but alas I will do my best to explain below.
What You’ll Need:
- Large Removalist Box
- Stanley Knife
- Acrylic Paint – Blue, Black & Yellow
- Thin Paint Brush
- Packing Tape
Cut off the Top & Bottom folded parts of the Large Removalist Box using a Stanley Knife. Save these Off cuts of Cardboard as they will be used later.
Cut down one side/length of the box, so that it could be folded it out in it’s largest form.
Trace the Minion shape in Pencil onto the Cardboard. Do not include the Hands these can be created with the off cuts later. At the top of the feet you want to extend your trace line to the edge of the Cardboard. This is so that a Base can be created to Stand the Minion upright.
Once you have drawn your Minion shape, cut around the edges carefully with a Stanley Knife. I used a Breadboard underneath as to not mark the Surface below.
Using Packing tape secure some cardboard offcuts to the folds in the cardboard so that your Minion does not Bend.
Using a Pencil draw the Minion’s Overalls, Feet and Eye Piece.
Draw an Oval for where Faces will be inserted and cut with a Stanley Knife.
Using a Stanley Knife Cut 2 Slits in the Base. Slide some Carboard Offcuts into those slits to secure the base so the Minion can stand. You may also need another piece of Cardboard at the Back with slits to secure the Minion some more.
Cut some Minion Hands from the Cardboard offcuts and attach with Packing tape to the Minion’s Arms.
Last but not least Paint your Minion with Acrylic Paint.
Doesn’t he look Fabulous?!
