Cubeecraft of Olaf From Disney’s 53 Animated Film ‘Frozen’

From the moment I heard about Disney’s new movie Frozen, I was extremely excited. This film is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Snow Queen. Of course Disney will take several liberties, making it their own story, but from what I have seen in their ads and trailers, it is sure to be a great film.

Story Summery:
“Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind “Tangled” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” presents “Frozen,” a stunning big-screen comedy adventure. Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.

Olaf looks to be the Plucky Comic relief. A happy go Lucky little guy that gets created in a winter wonderland. According the the Character Summery on the Frozen official website he likes Warm Hugs, which may be a problem for such a cold frozen guy.

Character Summery:
He’s Olaf (voice of Josh Gad) and he likes warm hugs. Sprung from Elsa’s magical powers, Olaf is by far the friendliest snowman to walk the mountains above Arendelle. His innocence, outgoing personality and uncanny ability to disassemble himself at good and not-so-good times lead to some awkward, albeit laughable moments. He may also have the world’s most impossible dream, but what he doesn’t know won’t melt him—or will it? (Frozen)

After seeing the trailer of Olaf, I had to make him into a cubeecraft. Now turning a round snowman into a square is weird and strange but I think I succeeded.

His hair needs to be cut very carefully and then slid into the slot on the top of his head. The arms, unlike cubeecraft arms are the twigs/sticks. Cut along the red lines on either side of the cubeecraft and slide the arms in. Be sure that the arms and the hair stay connected at their tips so that they can fold in half and become double sided.

To Build the Cubeecraft:
Materials needed:
Card stock
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 including in either side of the face
  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 you created with an x-acto knife to form a cube of the head, body, arms, and feet
  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!
