Free Maleficent Paper Dolls by Cory

Paper dolls by Cory has done it again. This time around Cory has made a paper doll for the up coming movie Maleficent. The movie will explore the Sleeping Beauty story through the eyes of one of Disney’s greatest villains.

The Paper doll features several different costumes that appeal to Maleficent’s not so better nature. All were drawn by Cory with his signature closed eyes and style. There are several other Paper dolls on the Paper Dolls by Cory Facebook Page. Check out his albums to see the Disney Princess Paper Dolls and other characters. His Frozen Paper dolls can also be found on my blog here.

These paper dolls are free to download, print and create. They are for your personal use only.

Maleficent will reach theaters on May 30, 2014 featuring Angelina Jolie as Maleficent and Elle Fanning as Aurora.

    “Maleficent: explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic “Sleeping Beauty” and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever. (Maleficent)

    Disney Snow White Printables, Coloring Pages and Activities

    Snow white is Disney’s first animated feature film and the first Disney Princess. The character Snow White is a kind and gentle person who sees no evil in the world. Her beauty shines and she is known as “the most fairest of all.” Her Evil Queen Stepmother is jealous of her beauty and orders her killed. However, the hunter left in charge of this task, tells Snow White to run because he couldn’t kill her.
    With the help of her forest friends, Snow White finds the cottage of the Seven Dwarfs. She decides to remain there until her prince comes to take her away.

    Amazon has an Exclusive X-Men: Days of Future Past Blu-Ray Set

    The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past – to save our future. (X-Men)

    After watching the epic battle of past and future, I knew I wanted this movie to complete my collection. I have to admit, anything with Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart will always be on my top need/want list.

    While the movie is still in theaters and has yet to be released on Blu-Ray or DVD, Amazon has listed a pre-order for their Amazon Exclusive set, which comes with a prop/memorabilia (see image below).

    To pre-order a copy of this epic movie or get more information on this Amazon exclusive, click the link below.


    X-Men: Days of Future Past (Amazon Exclusive) [Blu-ray]

    I personally can’t wait for this exclusive to join my collection. Time just can’t move fast enough. I suppose, to help alleviate the excitement, I will have to see the movie in theaters a couple more times.

    Disney Pinocchio Cubeecraft Papercraft

    In 1940 Disney released it’s second animated film Pinocchio. This little puppet was brought to life by the Blue Fairy after Geppetto wished on a star. However, before Pinocchio can be changed to a real boy, he must be brave, loyal, and honest. With the help of Jiminy Cricket, Pinocchio begins his adventures.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    After I received a request to make a Pinocchio Cubeecraft, my adventure began. With such an iconic character, I had to be sure that even at a glance, fans would be able to recognize this character in cubeecraft form. There were two things that needed to be considered.

    1. Pinocchio has a long nose even before he lies. I had to decide it I wanted the nose to actually protrude from the face or be drawn on the face.
    2. This character has a weird shaped hat that needed to be attached to Pinocchio’s head.

    After making several templates of the face, I chose to draw the nose on the cubeecraft. This decision not only makes it look a little cleaner but also makes the formation of the cubeecraft a little easier.

    The hat, however, was slightly more difficult. I wanted the hat to be attached to the cubeecraft and not a separate piece. To do so, I had to recreate the cubeecraft head with a hat template connected. I think that took the longest because I had to pull in my mathematics background to figure out the lengths and widths of the sides of each triangle. Who knew I would actually use Sin, Cos, and Tan while drawing a Disney character? Sometimes I am so glad I took Trigonometry in school. 😀

    After both choices were completed, I was able to finish this request and create a quick look.

    CUBEECRAFT:
    Materials needed:
    Printer
    Card stock
    scissors
    x-acto knife

    To make:

    1. Cut out each item along the outer black lines.
    2. Cut along the white on each tab using the x-acto knife and along the white above his bangs
    3. Cut along each red line using the x-acto knife
    4. Fold along each inner solid black line and slide each tab into the slots created with an x-acto knife to form a cube of the head, body, arms, and feet. (the head will have a cone on top for the hat)
    5. Slide the arms through the red slots on either side of the body.
    6. Slide the feet through the red slots at the base of the body.
    7. Slide the now completed body through the red lots of the head.

    He is done. To download this cubeecraft click the links below and save them to your computer. Then print and create!

    Disney Movies Anywhere premiere of Radiator Springs 500 1/2

    Race into summer with the Disney Movies Anywhere premiere of Radiator Springs 500 1/2. The all-new Disney-Pixar short is available for free, and is an exciting first installment in the “Tales from Radiator Springs” series. Just download Disney Movies Anywhere app for iPhone or iPad to watch Radiator Springs 500 1/2 now!

    Featuring Owen Wilson as Lightning McQueen and directed by Rob Gibbs (“Mater’s Tall Tales”), Radiator Springs 500 1/2 tells the story of a “leisurely drive” planned in honor of Radiator Springs’ town founder, Stanley, which turns precarious as Baja pros descend on the town and challenge Lightning McQueen to an off-road race. Meanwhile, the townsfolk, led by a Stanley-costumed Mater, enjoy the planned “leisurely drive” to retrace Stanley’s original frontier route. Thinking they’re on the same course, a wrong turn sends McQueen and the Baja pros on a treacherously wild bid for survival. The misunderstanding leaves the racing professionals in awe of the “legend” of Stanley: the Original Off-Road Racer

    Check out the preview to Radiator Springs 500 1/2

    I have always loved the Cars inspired shorts. Mater does the craziest stuff and at the end it leaves the audience thinking, “did he really do that?” In this new series Radiator Springs, Mater is still up to his old antics. However, in Radiator Springs 500 1/2 it is more of misdirection than UFOs or the Twin Girls.
    To add an extra laugh, several puns are used throughout the short. There are so many in this episode that I couldn’t help but laugh. See if you can catch them all as you watch the film.

    Disney Maleficent Free Printable Activity Pack

    On may 30, 2014 Angelina Jolie will be Maleficent on the big screen. We will get to see another side of the villain who rocked the Disney world and perhaps learn why her heart turned to stone.

      “Maleficent: explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic “Sleeping Beauty” and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever. (Maleficent)

    The film stars Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.

    In anticipation of the theatrical release of Maleficent, Disney has released a Maleficent Activity Pack full of wonderful printables.
    The pages include:
    2 different ‘Spot the Difference’ activities
    Thorn Forest Maze
    Save Aurora Maze
    and 4 coloring pages!

    We know the story, but there is more. From what I have seen in the Trailer, it looks as if all our unanswered questions of who is Maleficent, why she was so angry and how she became an epic Disney villain are about to be answered. With Angelina portraying Maleficent, I would say it looks to be an exciting film full of action as well as the much needed background stories. What do you think? Will you be seeing this movie May 30?

    Cubeecraft of Cheburashka with #CubeeFollowMeEyes

    After watching an Episode of Cheburashka, I fell in love with the little character. He is so cute with his Teddy Bear like Body and really big ears. It isn’t a wonder on how the Cheburashka became so popular. In fact many of my readers fell in love with my Cheburashka cubeecraft.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I figured if everyone liked him sitting there on their desks and tables, why not make one with the new feature I created for the cubeecrafts: the Cubee-Follow-Me-Eyes (#CubeeFollowMeEyes).

    As seen in the video above, as the cubeecraft is rotated the eyes follow the watcher. However, unlike the Achmed Cubeecraft with the Cubee-Follow-Me-Eyes, the Cheburashka keeps his cuteness. Many times I just want to pick him up and hug him. I have to remind myself that it is paper and therefore, crushes easily.

    Warning: These are not simple to create. The eyes of the cubeecraft must be carefully cut out and the insert must be placed in at the right angle for this to work. Follow the instructions and please be very patient when creating the Cubee-Follow-Me-Eyes. When all is done correctly the cubeecraft’s eyes will look like they follow those who look at him. See the nimated Gif below or the Video above.

    CUBEECRAFT:
    Materials needed:
    Printer
    Card stock
    scissors
    x-acto knife

    To make:

    1. Cut out each item along the outer black lines.
    2. Cut along the white on each tab using the x-acto knife
    3. Cut along each red line using the x-acto knife including the long ones on each side of the head. Be careful not to cut to far.
    4. Cut out the eyes where indicated.
    5. Fold along each inner solid line and slide each tab into the slots created with an x-acto knife to form a cube of the body, arms, and feet. Each tab should slide into the corresponding white line holes.
    6. Slide the arms through the red slots on either side of the body.
    7. Slide the feet through the red slots at the base of the body (he should look like he is sitting)
      The Head (see image for help)
    8. (1) Put together the head but leave the top up like a lid.
    9. (2) Fold the insert along the black line with the eyes facing out.
    10. (3) Place the insert in the head. The bottom of the insert should be up against the corner of the cubeecraft. The tab on the end of the insert needs to slide through the back tab of the head so that the insert stays in place.
    11. (4) Close the head.
    12. Fold the ears in half color sides facing out
    13. Slide the ears on either side of the head. The shaded side of the ears should be facing front.
    14. Slide the completed body into the red slots on the base of the head.

    Cheburashka with #CubeeFollowMeEyes is now complete To download this cubeecraft click the links below and save them to your computer. Then print and create!

    After watching the video I had to make my own Boxtroll. Once I went to the site I had to scroll Down, Down, Down to finally get low enough where the Boxtrolls live. There I drew my box and began making my troll. It was fun to check out all the features and make my own label for Fairy Sweet. I clicked on The head, arms, and legs to change the color of the skin, add accessories and change their size by sliding the bar at the top of the screen. I then clicked the box to add a label; I used the already made labels. I then changed the labels color and typed Butterfly Sweets because they are all natural. 😀
