How to build Chibi Papercraft by tsunyandere How to build Chibi Papercraft by tsunyandere
These are comprehensive instructions for building a chibi model.
*common sense plays a huge parts in figuring where each part go so please try to make sense of it VISUALLY. ^^

All comments disregarding this will be flagged as spam. Thank you.



This works for all Chibi templates based on the original Chibi Miku by Niseke.

*use liquid glue, I use clear glue (like the asian brand), but school glue should work. It is nearly impossible to glue it together with stick glue. It's not adhesive enough.

How to print:

You can paste the base into a word processing program like Microsoft word and you can fit two papers onto 1 page. The sizing is perfect and easy to manage.

The paper I use is 9x11 normal printer paper. ^^

Thank you! I printed out a few chibi papercraft templates but couldn't figure out what to do with the bangs. This helped a lot!

The only problem I'm having is sometimes with the hair, I find it to be a bit flimsy at times XD

THANK YOU SO MUCH!! This is a life saver. I just printed out a paper craft and I'm sitting there looking at it like "whut? How do I even?".
I wasn't sure if the dotted lines meant folding or cutting. (Sometimes I'm not the brightest crayon in the box.)

Ah... When I made a few chibi papercrafts, I didn't use this tutorial, so the arm and legs ended up falling off and ending up all over the place ^^; This is very helpful, thank you! :D

I seriously don't know how to fold the arms, there's only one flap!!! Its really confusing, perhaps there should be an update blog, plus the dotted lines aren't there! I don't really care if its too visible, you just have to fold it and it won't be seen -_-

I use school glue, and I recommend to use a small stick to pick up some glue and puting it in the tab :3 it gives more accuracy and you get your hands clean

My printer fails, so I am stuck hand drawing them and coloring on a plain white index card. XP But, all that hard work makes them so much more special! <3
