Alternating (zipper style) glue tabs tutorial

I guess my Ganondorf is on hold until I finish moving my main website (where you can download all of my papercraft models).

Don't worry though, because that shouldn't be very long. All I have left to do for now is the hall of fame and the links section. The downloads are already be up.

In the meantime, I made this simple tutorial about alternating ("zipper style") glue tabs (where the glue tabs are on opposite sides instead of all on one side).

I'm not saying you should always use this method, or that you should never use it. But knowing the pros and cons of a method helps you decide whether or not it's a good idea to use it if you're making your own papercraft models.

As always with my video tutorials featuring a computer voice, you can download the script for the spoken text.

Have fun watching!


  1. NIce demonstration :)

    I personally like the first method (red box) the most though, but I guess that's just preference.

  2. They're all useful in different situations I think.

    Congrats on your Happy Mask Salesman btw! ;o)

  3. Yeah, I guess so :) I'll experiment with this on my next craft ^^

    Oh, and...

  4. I prefer the first method too... When it comes to a box, the zipper style is better, but when you need to close a model and don't have possibilities to apply pressure on the tabs, leaving out a piece that doesn't have tabs and apply it is much more simplier.

  5. great demonstration! Also, thanks for commenting on my blog, I absolutely LOVE your papercrafts!

  6. I just had to when I saw that awesome Raph coloring! ;o)
