    Hey guys check it out. I was looking online to find a Paper Model iPhone to put together and only found the ones on Gizmodo and SneakMove.com. Neither of them satisfied me cause they didn't have rounded corners or images of the top and bottom of the phone, so I put this one together from scratch. What do you think?

    You must have tiny hands

    Wow, not only was that incredibly difficult to cut out and assemble, I think the actual iPhone would be very hard to use if it was this small. Are you sure you got the scale right?

    Actually my WIFE already knows :) This is what I do for fun at night when I can't sleep, which after having a new daughter, is almost every night.

    I'm actually selling this pdf file on ebay for $3 since no one is donating to my BuyMeAniPhone fund. For $8 I'm actually putting it together and mailing it to them. Its funny what people will buy these days.:eek:

    • Mugged
    • Offered money
    • Propositioned
    • Photo'd and made a front page story on MacRumors.com

    Excellent! I see those all around eBay. Here's mine. I didn't bother to print it at full quality. I need my ink!

    That's cool :) I used to love making up paper models as a kid.

    No better way to judge the portability of an iPhone than to hold one in your hand.

    Now, put about half a cup of water in a ziplock bag and stuff that inside to approximate the weight :) (Assuming bag+paper+tape = .8 ounces.)

    I saw that as well and thought it was a little odd myself.
