Wouldn’t it be nice if you Nendoroid would have some sweets and your favorite snacks as well? I sure do! As you noticed most of my posts here involve food or snacks actually. So to make my photos more fun I decided to give my Nendoroid some sweets!
To start off, here is what we’ll need:
1. Print outs to use (of course!)
2. Special Paper used for Flyer (or you can use normal paper that you usually use.
4. Double-sided Tape
5. Strips of Paper from scratch papers or so
6. PATIENCE and TIME XD
*For the paper, I used the paper used for flyers, I’m not really sure what it’s called but the brand I used is Nevia and there’s a list of what this paper can be used to which does include flyers – this is to obtain the “glossy” effect of snack products but you can always opt to use normal bond paper. I got Nevia from National Bookstore by the way.
Now that you’re ready, let’s proceed!
Cut a long piece from your double-sided tape and cut it again into small strips. Our printouts are really small so this is preferred.
Put some of the double-sided tape at the extra edge.
Next we put double sided tape for the edges at the back. Take note of the areas as seen in the image.
Once you’re done, stick the first edge we put double-sided tape on to the other end part. Make sure bottom part covers the one where the sticky part is and not vice versa. Also, make sure there is a hole inside.
Tip: You can use your scissor and place it “inside the hole” to keep the shape while you’re making it stick on to the other side, or maybe a pen if you have one near you.
Press bottom part to close it and to also prepare for next step. Make sure it is tight and secure but leave empty space in the middle and leave top part open. Your nails will do the trick here 🙂
Prepare your pieces/strips of scratch paper, or just pick up those that were used awhile ago with the double-sided tape XD
Put strips of paper inside of your opened hole. This will serve as the filling. You can push it little by little with a toothpick or your scissors. You can also crumple the papers into small pieces that can fit in the snack wrapper we made so it is easier.
If you think your snack wrapper is “filled up” already just enough, you can close the top part now. Make sure you fill it up but won’t fill it too much >w< You might end up messing up the insides and repeating all over again or ripping it apart, so be very careful! Again, use the power of your nails ~
Step 8 – Finishing touches ~
Press the edges carefully to make a shape that the snack would look more “bulgy” or plump like real snacks do.
Well, it isn’t really hard but needs tons of patience >w< Hope this helped you out and as a bonus I’ll leave a link below to some of the patterns I made and also gathered.
The snack print outs here can be made very much the same with the method above.
Note that the brand or products are not mine, I just love them by heart so I thought of giving some treats to my Nendoroid babies and to yours as well. You can probably use it with other scale figures/figma.
I’ve made the size just right for Nendos but you can always edit it to your liking. I do hope you can leave some credit to Nendomeow when you do use them >w< will really appreciate that!
*I couldn’t replicate some of the snacks but I edited them in a way that they would appear much like the real thing, ie. the M&Ms and others don’t have labels on their back as I did them at Photoshop – couldn’t find the real things to print so..
Thanks for keeping up with the tutorial and I hope to see your Nendos with their treats! Link ’em up here if you like 🙂
~~~~ Some things you might ask
Can I use cotton as filling?
– Yes you can, but I just prefer to re-use my scratch paper/double-sided tape cover to recycle them. Also, I get this feeling the paper would have a much more “crunchy” feeling to it while shaping the snack wrapper to look like the real thing.
Can I use glue?
– You sure can! I just liked using double-sided tape because I have a feeling using glue will make it messy and also cause some issues with the ink, unless you’re using the ink that doesn’t get smudged when it gets wet?
Can you make a video instead?
I’d love to but I am very camera-shy and I might keep messing up the work in the process! Haha!
If you have other questions, just leave a comment on this post and I’ll try to answer!
