Josh used an original gameboy enclosure to frame some paper pixels –

Unfortunately this one had the “bars of death” on the display and wouldn’t function properly. So I took it apart, stripped the guts out, and assembled a shadow box made from a Game Boy and Reverend Timothy’s papercraft. I scaled the paper model down to 82% so it would fit inside the frame of the Nintendo screen.

Huh, we figured the next Paper Mario would appear on the DS. – Link
