These printable Frankenweenie masks for kids were released by the Disney Family website a couple of years ago. Frankenweenie is the fourth stop-motion animated movie by director Tim Burton.

German Windmill Paper Model

This paper model is of a 19th century windmill that once existed near Mondorf, Germany. The windmill was demolished in 1923. This papercraft was released by the Kallboys club, a group of bowling friends from Mondorf who enjoy creating paper models of local landmarks. The PDF template for the model may be downloaded here. The download has very nice instructions with photos, but as to be expected, the text is in German.

Vintage Papercraft Village

In  1934, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle newspaper published a fifteen part series of papercraft buildings for children. Although billed as "fold-up houses", the collection also happens to include some commercial buildings as well. Because the models are monochrome, they somewhat remind me of architecture you might see in the black and white cartoons of the period in which they were produced. Scans of all 15 buildings in the series may be found here.
