Papercraft decorations

I love papercraft - it's the perfect marriage of DIY-ism, economy, miniatures, and scissors and glue. This is the sort of fun kindergarden prepared you for. I haven't done nearly enough papercraft (not having access to a color printer at the moment will do that) but I love it. Imagine how at home these would be in a nice craftsman style display case.

Model of the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Car - instructions are in Japanese so maybe not for your first papercraft?

The Black Pearl!  A zillion pieces and also in Japanese so quite the challenge.

Time machine!  From the only Time Machine movie that I'll acknowledge.

The Nautilus, from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.  
Plans for a display stand included.  Wouldn't this be great on a display shelf?

Also of interest:

  • Halloween themed papercraft including various model houses, monsters, coffins, and a few games to print out and make.  And a pocket skeleton!

  • Disney themed papercraft.  Everything from Disneyland buildings and signs to movie bits and bobbles. Totally worth spending some time checking out.
