papercruiser_pdf_trucks

Most origami kits teach you how to make a paper flower or grasshopper, which is about as interesting as, well, origami. How about a paper-folding project with balls instead? These paper models are downloadable PDFs that you just print out and build: all your favorite late-model and classic trucks are available. No grasshoppers.

ESSEY ILLUSION SIDE TABLE

Dudes don’t normal get stoked about side tables, this one’s an exception. All Illusion tables are handmade, individual and unique. The design gives the impression of a table cloth on a round table. However, the object uses the structural strength of the folded material to create a magical and surprising experience.

INSTAGRAM FRIG MAGNETS

We know, we know… this is a blog for dudes, but we all secretly dig sweet swag on our frig. However, some dudes need to badly upgrade their magnetic offerings. Replace the ceramic windmills, horrible puns and other tacky magnets on your fridge with your own Instagram masterpieces, thanks to StickyGram. For a low fee, the company will take your Instagram photos and turn them into magnets.

The magnets are almost as big as how they appear on the iPhone – 2″ x 2″ – so you can fill your fridge with dozens of your heavily filtered pics.

Sign in with your Instagram account on Stickygram’s website to get started, then pay $15 (USD) for every 9 photos that you want to convert into fridge magnets. If you want to be a smart-ass, take Instagram photos of your current magnets and then StickyGram them.

You’re welcome.
