Naruto Uzumaki Papercaft

This Naruto paper model is a nice change of pace in that it was created from scratch rather than being based on a 3D model ripped from a video game like most papercraft figures are these days. I especially like the ornery look on Naruto's face. ^^ The papercraft template for this model may be downloaded here. Also available are the Naruto characters Sakura and Sasuke.

DIY Papercraft Mockingjay Pin

This papercraft mockingjay pin uses a construction technique I had never seen before. Layers of cardstock are glued flat on top of one another to create a sculptural effect. The end result, to my eye at least, is very close to the prop pins used in the Hunger Games movies. A free printable template for the pin may be downloaded from Steve's Paper. The pin in the photo was coated with super glue to strengthen the paper.  According to Steve this final step makes the pin "surprisingly tough".

Doctor Who Dalek Paper Dolls

On the one hand, the idea of Dalek paper dolls seems a little absurd, but on the other hand there is something about them I find a little amusing. These well executed Dalek paper dolls are the creation of DeviantART member, MadunTwo-Swords. The dolls may be downloaded here. Madun also offers many other Doctor Who cutouts to amaze and delight.
