Mini Warhol Brillo Box Paper Toys

I don't know what came over me when I decided to create a mini papercraft version of Warhol's Brillo Boxes. It took quite a bit of work to accurately recreate the graphics on the boxes. Then there was the question of size. For lack of a better size, I decided to make them Barbie Doll scale (1:6). That way Barbie can be a... er... art museum curator or something. ;) The PDF template for the boxes is available here. Andy Warhol created his Brillo artwork in 1964 as a "deadpan replication of American commercial culture" (or so says the Allen Memorial Art Museum).
