Hi, guys, I've been seeing these Minecraft Ore Lamps, and I thought why I don't make one of my own?

    First, draw a cube design on your piece of paper, and make sure that it has only five sides instead of six, because we won't be needing the sixth
    Also, make sure that there are flaps so you can easily stick the cube together later on.

    Now, I am making a grid on the top of my cube design
    because I want to draw my Minecraft design easily on it. But you don't have to do the grid If you want just free hand the Minecraft design.

    Next, lightly score the edge of your cube design so it will be easy to fold later, but don't press too hard otherwise it will go through

    Start to paint your Minecraft design, I am only using one color for the entire Minecraft
    You can make more pixels like the actual Minecraft if you like, but I thought that it's not necessary because when you turn off the lights and the lamp is on, you can't really see the pixel dot line anyway.
