Ah, Christmas is almost upon us and it’s time to bring out some crazy DIY papercraft Christmas decorations to set your tree apart from all of the rest. You can create this papercraft Steve Jobs Christmas tree ornament all by yourself and hang it on your Christmas tree to make it Apple approved!
We’ve featured a few Cubeecraft creations before, but if you’re a high-level Crafter and can do more than just cut and fold, the folks at Laboratory 424 have quite the project for you – a Super Mario papercraft magnet board:
If you don’t remember the Commodore SX-64, it was the retro computer maker’s first attempt at a portable computer. The beastly box weighed in at a backbreaking 23 pounds. Thankfully, this papercraft version is a little lighter.
I am not a card person. I rarely read them if you send them to me and if you don’t send them to me I won’t think twice about it. There are some people who are card people though and if you are the sort of card person that likes to send them, you need to get some of these awesome Mechanicards to give out.
Fans of Minecraft – perhaps the only video game that justifies a purchase despite being in alpha – love to build, so they’ll undoubtedly be ecstatic about this:
This lovely diorama of country scenery – slightly marred by the presence of the most disturbing likeness of a pig that I have ever seen – was made by Tumblr blogger Jumbso.
This amazing papercraft reconstruction of Star Wars was made for Jeremy Messersmith‘s song called Tatooine. It was directed and animated by Eric Power. It’s definitely a good way to end the week!
It’s actually a music video for Jeremy’s song, which is also pretty good.
While I think it’s really cool that someone made a duct tape/sharpie AT-AT, I find it a bit ridiculous that it’s currently being sold on eBay with a starting bid of $400. Still, it’s an AT-AT made out of duct tape, so I can’t complain too much.
While it’s certainly not as tall as the 59 foot Gundam in Japan, this 4 foot-tall version is still pretty impressive. Taras Lesko built this amazing statue of Freedom Gundam out of paper.
This is his latest papercraft project which took him over 2 months to construct.
This little instructional illustration says it all.
If you’re into little papercraft characters, you must head on over to Cubeecraft and grab these two cut-out kits of Half-Life’s Gordon Freeman, and his perfectly fitted headcrab accessory.
Just like everything else these days, the MS Windows trashcan has been re-born in 3D. But you don’t need special glasses to see this one. The guys at Codeco basically took the classic trash can icon from MS Windows and transformed it into a papercraft 3D model.
Artist Dan McPharlin makes incredibly detailed miniature synths and other electronic instruments out of cardboard:
Wow. There are so many neat touches in that picture alone: the tiny monitor and the wires on the lower left synth, the wood-like paint on the upper right synth… Maybe someone can embed a chip or something and make these things actually play tiny bleeps and bloops!
Remember that scene in Star Wars where that ugly, trash-talking green slimeball Greedo gets in an argument with Han Solo, whips out his gun and ends up getting shot? Now you can recreate that scene (with your friend playing the part of Greedo, that of course) with this awesome papercraft DL-44 gun – the same weapon donned by Solo in that fateful scene.
I knew that there were people who were very good at using paper to create things, but did you know that these papercraft creations could be this realistic? What’s even more fantastic is that you can download the plans of these papercraft ships and vehicles, and try to make them yourselves!
DeviantARTist Misty (aka ~gozita2003) must have just a little bit of time on her hands. At least that’s what I figure from the looks of this intricate giant Master Chief papercraft sculpture she put together.
