Chibi Princess Bubblegum Papercraft

This chibi-style Princess Bubblegum papercraft was created by DeviantART member, ELJOEYDESIGNS. Of all the Adventure Time princesses, PB is Finn the Human's strongest love interest. Having been formed from a mass of mutated bubblegum just after the Mushroom War, Princess Bubblegum is nearly a thousand years old. Doesn't look it, does she? The papercraft template (found here) also includes a tiny Peppermint Butler model. Build photo by NikitaOwO.

Origami Crown

I thought this origami crown was a great idea. It is a simple, glue-less way to make royal headgear for those play times when your child wants to play-act being a prince or princess. The size of the finished crown depends on the size of the square of paper used. A 26" x 26" (67 cm x 67 cm) square of paper produces a crown with a diameter of 7.87" (20 cm). Step by step instructions for folding the crown are located here.

Disney Princess Leia Papercraft

After Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012, there was a lot of jokes about whether Princess Leia would become an official Disney Princess or not.  As it turns out, Leia was designated a "Disney Heroine" instead. Be that as it may, those who have built the official papercraft Disney princesses can now add Leia to their collection. This unofficial papercraft Princess Leia was designed by Kelly Delanty who also created several of the official papercraft princesses for Disney, so the model is pretty much guaranteed to match the official collection. The PDF template for Delanty's model may be downloaded here.

Trojan Horse Paper Toy

In 2010 this cute Trojan horse paper toy was released as a promotional item to advertise the Nintendo DS video game, Glory of Heracles.  The cool thing about the toy is it has an actual secret compartment built into the side. Brian Castleforte, founder of Nice Paper Toys, is the designer of the piece. A PDF template for the horse is still available for download at Nintendo Papercraft.
