Printable Christmas Tree Advent Calendar

This printable Christmas tree Advent calendar from Canon Creative Park has an ingenious method for counting the days until Christmas. The tree contains numbered drawers corresponding to the days of December.  After the appropriate drawer is pulled out of the tree (and the treat inside consumed!), the drawer is then replaced in the tree backwards. On the back of each drawer is an ornament for the Advent tree! This papercraft was designed by Masahiro Watanabe.

3D Papercraft Doomguy Mask

Remember the in-game space marine avatar in the original Doom video game? His steely face was the health indicator in the heads-up display at the bottom of the screen. Using the 2D HUD image of the Doomguy's face, Dean Swanton created this printable 3D papercraft mask! Dean has graciously allowed me to offer the template for the mask through Tektonten Papercraft. A download of Dean's files may be found here. Be forewarned, the files are in a somewhat raw form and may require some cleanup to improve the build-ability of the model. The first Doom game was released in 1993.

Crash Bandicoot Aku Aku & Uka Uka
Borderlands 2 Handsome Jack

Marvel Spider-Ham Paper Model

In one corner of the Marvel Comics multiverse is a universe of anthropomorphic animals. In this universe there are super-heroes that are parodies of  heroes in the main Marvel universe. One such hero is Spider-Ham, a spider named Peter who is bitten by a radioactive pig. Peter transforms into a pig himself, but retains his spider abilities. This paper model likeness of Spider-Ham was created by Rock-Paper. PDF and Pepakura PDO templates may be downloaded here.

Star Wars BB-9E Paper Model

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to be released on December 15th.  Not surprisingly, papercraft related to the movie is already being released. This paper model is of BB-9E, a New Order astromech droid of the same class as BB-8, the lovable droid who appeared in the previous movie, The Force Awakens. A download of the papercraft template for this model, along with video instructions, may be found here. The model may be modified into a fun desktop toy by adding a coin inside during construction. The weight of the coin then allows the droid to wobble back and forth without falling over.

Sith Holocron
Captain Phasma Helmet
Life-size R2-D2
