Remember that Mario head on the opening screen of Super Mario 64, the one that you can pinch and pull? Now, you can have a papercraft version, courtesy of Pixel-Kakashi.
I think I lol-ed the whole time I was making this one. You might have seen a sneak peek of this model when I let Hello Kitty borrow his hat for a moment [link] . Now it's on the head of it's rightful owner.
It's about 15 cm tall. Get it now from Nintendo Papercraft. [link]
I know I swore off working with glossy photo paper. It's too stiff and hard to glue and the tiniest glue left on you fingers gets stuck on it.
BUT, Pixel Kakashi designed this awesome hat and it's Mario's and it's wearable. And I had to do it, hello, glossy paper, and I remembered all the reasons I swore it off and it took twice as long to make it. But then, I discovered that I can wipe off the glue spots with a damp paper towel and it doesn't hurt the paper! In the end, It was really worth it.
The Mario figure is not papercraft, but wouldn't it be awesome if someone can design a papercraft version of him?

In four days I designed and built everything but the hands and keyblade but then I hit a bad art block and it took me about a month to finish the rest. But here he is! Templates will be released on the upcoming Kingdom Hearts Papercraft blog. Angles can be seen here: [link]
This one is an old model that I had a play around with almost a year ago, now. But I never finished it because I always had problems with the jar and the visibility of the clear plastic tabs.
There were many discussions re: "the problem of tabs on clear media" on Nintendo Papercraft forum, but nothing that I found satisfactory.
I used overhead projector plastic film, which I found inherently difficult to glue together because it was made of Polypropylene (PP). It was only after purchasing 20 sheets in a pack that I discovered PP doesn't like with superglue - it's possibly the only material in the world that repels Cyanoacrylate !
So I finally got off my proctastinating bottom and finshed this model "old school" style - an idea here, a tweek there, a snip here, and a try-again there. What you are seeing is the 2nd fairy (the first got smoshed by my 3y/o) and the 3rd jar (not the failed prototypes) that I have built from the model/ emplate we released December last year.
It's not perfect, or like we envisioned, but it'll do for now. Or until they make a glue for PP plastic. I could always try glass and silicone ... phft, that's foolish talk!
If you want to have a go at it, you can find the template here [link] , half way down the page.
I don't know why I didn't upload this earlier ... oh yeah, because I was procrastinating! I made this earlier in the year (April, I think) and since I uploaded the photo of the pot, I figured you can't have one without the other!
You'd find them all over the floors of the dungeons in the game The Legend Of Zelda - Wind Waker. I would spend WAY too much time searching for these skulls, just so I could lob them at the wall! Haha! *sigh* great fun!
Even though this one didn't come out perfectly, I'm still really proud of myself. Took me about a month to finish, but it was worth it, though I could've finished it in less than a week if I hadn't procrastinated it so much (is that even the right word to use?)... I did like 6 other papercrafts in the middle of making this one. I couldn't get myelf to work on it again. xP
One thing kept bothering me.. The hands look really weird. They look like they should be attatched to the other wrists, but the templates made it that way. I would've switched them if I could, but I already made the holes for the sword and was too lazy to start over. -.- Also, I know I messed up the shield's handle, so don't bother telling me. Bleh.
Thanks to for decoding this! It would be impossible for anyone to make it without her awesomeness! <3
Thought I'd upload a papercraft this time. Here's the SSBB Bowser that was designed by . I'm really proud of this one! I think it's my best build yet This is also one of the crafts that were displayed at my school's art show. Probably got the most attention too.
So there you have it, thank you Brandon for designing this awesome model! The build went incredibly smooth too. I actually made the teeth!
Yay! Chartodileon finally designed his first REAL papercraft! It's Whomp, from the Super Mario series! I got this idea when I was playing mario party 8 and saw a Whomp. I thought it would be a pretty easy papercraft to design without using a 3-D modelling program, because those things are REALLY confusing.. O.o
Anyway, I made the textures and everything with GIMP. The templates might not be perfect, so you might have to do some editing or trimming, but I think it's a pretty good papercraft, since it's my first. The lines are pretty thick.. try to cut through the very center of it.
Oh, and BTW, the arms aren't really that color, my printer was being dumb... Please, try it!! It'd make me really happy to see other people make this.
After Four Swords Link [link] I've built Wind Waker Link too! This is more difficult to build compared to the other one, but I really like the model! Guess I'll change the photo with a better one in the future...
If you want to build it too, download the template here [link]
... and after finishing the Maplestory diorama I said to myself: "the next project will be something nice but simple and really easy, just to relax". Then Chamoo232 released the Jack Skellington template. LOL! Coherence people, I'm such a coherent person! I'm really fond of this model btw, I love it so!!! (It's a whopping almost-40cm tall model, so if you want to build it too, keep that in mind!)
Template by Chamoo232 can be found at her website here [link]
Here it is! Finally, I've finished Ninjatoes's Kingdom Hearts Cloud! I must tell ya, hands were more challenging than the hair! I've also edge-coloured every single piece of this guy, so the white lines of the paper are now hidden. Now I can finally get my revenge on Cloud, since he whipped my butt more than once in the KH Arena! I can menace him with my cutter every time I want! If you want to give this model a try, go to [link] and, either under Final Fantasy or Kingdom Hearts, you'll find the templates for Cloud! But beware, this guy isn't simple, especially the hands and hair, and connecting the hair to the head.
IMPRESIONANTE!!! Me encantó este modelo, estuve esperando mucho tiempo para obtener sus plantillas, asi que gracias primero que todo a ITCHUS7 por diseñar este papercraft (y no gracias por compartir sus modelos con contraseña) y muchas gracias tambien a Skelekitty por desencriptar la clave del PDF y asi por fin poder armarlo.
Este es el modelo MAS DIFICIL que he armado (he hecho otros mas dificiles, pero no los he terminado de armar XD), algunos pequeños errores de diseño, y por ahi hace falta el modelo 3D para ir mirando como van las piezas, por lo mismo, el modelo no me quedo perfecto, pero aun asi me encantó.
Armé la versión Sin líneas, y me guíe con la version con líneas para doblar el papel.
Impressive! I loved this model, I was waiting a long time to get their templates, so first of all thanks to ITCHUS7 by designing this papercraft (and not thanks for sharing your models with password) and also very thanks to Skelekitty to decrypt PDF and so finally able assemble.
This model is the most difficult I have assemble (I made some more difficult, but I have not finished arming XD), some small errors in design, and there is needed for the 3D model will be watching as the pieces, so Similarly, the model I am not perfect, but even so I loved it.
I Assemble the version Without lines, and guide me with the version with lines to fold the paper.
Esta es la Máscara de Majora de el maravilloso juego de Nintendo 64 "La leyenda de Zelda: La máscara de Majora".
Si bien el diseño original es pequeño, encontre por casualidad hace mucho tiempo esta version en grande como para poder usarla. Quizas tiene algunas fallas de diseño debido al "Agrandamiento" , pero en general encuentro que esta super bien.
Las geniales plantillas para hacerla (junto a decenas mas de modelos tanto de zelda como de otras cosas) pueden encontrarlas en el genial sitio de Ninjatoes en [link]
La plantilla en tamaño real la pueden bajar aquí [link]
This is the mask of Majora's, from the wonderful Nintendo 64 game "The Legend of Zelda: Majora's mask."
While the original design is small, i found by chance a long time ago in this version as big as you will use it. Maybe it has some design flaws due to "enlarge", but in general I this is super.
The great templates to make it (along with dozens more models of both zelda as other things) can be found at the site of great Ninjatoes in [link]
