Between visits to Stephen Colbert, graffiti tagging, recording secret mini concerts, hanging out on Saturday Night Live wearing giant papier maché heads, leaking their record and the upcoming live concert Oct. 28, Arcade Fire have been pretty busy lately.

Since the Montreal-based band can't be everywhere at once, CBC Music designer Samantha Smith has come up with the perfect substitute: build your own Arcade Fire!

Below you'll find templates and instructions on how to cut, fold and create your very own Arcade Fire. In the gallery above, follow Win Butler, Régine Chassagne, Richard Reed Parry, William Butler, Tim Kingsbury, Sarah Neufeld and Jeremy Gara on a variety of awesome adventures around Vancouver, including hanging out with the hyper-popular sister trio Haim.
