Make a paper Raspberry Pi case

Raspberry Pi board is shipped board only. Nothing else. It is a barebon IC board.

So first I think it is good to give it a case.

  • Score card firmly on fold lines before folding.


It is easy to use. I found the printout pdf from the official site here.

  • For best results cut with fine pointed knife andmetal safety ruler. Please be careful, and supervise children. I’m not responsible for cut
