    Lol that's awsome but 9hrs work it must be SOME FRIEND! [​IMG]

    Let me guess you promised to get your friend a PS3 for Christmas?! lol

    You may need to insert a couple of HOUSE BRICKS taped together in there to give the WEIGHT of a PS3 if your going to give it as though it was real wrapped up etc [​IMG]

    Pretty awesome. Would've been cool if you made the Playstation Sign on the PS3 raised and moveable, the controller buttons/analog raised, and printed colour photos for the game cases.. and maybe even be able to open them and write them your own little something disguised as an instruction manual.. LOL. But then that might take another few hours. But still, awesome nonetheless. Good job. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the compliments everyone!
    But to make things clear for you all:

    In The Netherlands (where i live) we have "pakjesavond" (presentevening) on 5 dec.
    And therefor you 'have' to make a suprise (a fake present with something in it)
    So i have made this ps3 out of cardboard and his present are socks [​IMG] (inside the ps3)
    So it's kinda funny. [​IMG]

    But he will buy a ps3 in a month anyway [​IMG]
    So it's not that hard to get a fake one.

    Btw i have made it out of very thin but powerfull cardboard, and using my ps3 as example,
    i have measured a lot, draw it out, and cut it out of the cardboard [​IMG]

    hehe cool!

    My friend once made a box of Majora's Mask out of a N64 box (you know, where the N64 is in when you buy it).
    Because he knew I wanted that game very bad. (I never got it though [​IMG] )

    Amazing!

    That sounds like a very interesting (and FUN) tradition! Around here we just make pretty boxes/bags and put the gifts inside of those [​IMG]

    Looks if it, is it paper craft, I done one of them in the past

    Paper craft is a pain in the ass overall.
