Here is fun and simple papercraft project for GOTG fans: the cassette player from the film. This isn’t the walkman Peter Quill carries, rather the deck that is embedded into the wall of his ship, and is featured as the soundtrack cover.
I designed this to be life-size and to hang anywhere like a clock. Here it is by my desk:
Initially this was more ambitious — the player had extruded buttons and a more detailed cassette, but I decided to keep it simple so kids can take a crack at this (you just need scissors and tape). It does feature a removable cassette if that’s any consolation.
After the jump you’ll find the templates and directions.
Notes: use card paper! Print all the templates as-is (they are sized 8.5″ x 11″) if you want to keep this life-size. If you want the cassette to be 2-sided you’ll have to print 2 cassettes and merge them together. Click to enlarge:
Minor update – I found a higher-res image of the cassette:
