DIY Papercraft Thor Hammer for Kids

I have featured several different paper models of the war hammer of Marvel Comics' Thor, but this is the first one that is specifically scaled for children. Offered by the Disney Family website, the template for this model may be downloaded here. In both Norse mythology and also in comic books published by Marvel, Thor's hammer is named "Mjolnir". Looking for the Thor helmet in the photo? It is located here.

Marvel Papercraft: Black Cat Bust

Here's a bust of Marvel Comics' Black Cat (no pun intended!). The Black Cat, whose real identity is Felicia Hardy, has a long romantic history with Spider-Man. At one point in their relationship she gained his trust enough for him to reveal his secret identity to her. The template for the bust may be downloaded here. The download includes both Pepakura PDO and PDF files. Model design by Paper-Rock. Build photo by Hugo-Drax.

Chibi Breath of the Wild Link Papercraft

Out of the papercraft that has been released for the new Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild video game, this Link model has to be my favorite.  Given the style of this papercraft, it might look like a model from the 2002 Wind Waker game, but it is actually a chibi version of how an adult Link appears in the newest game. A download of the template may be found here. Breath of the Wild was released in 2017.

Disney Bambi Papercraft

I am not sure, but I believe this papercraft of Disney's Bambi was based on a 3D model from one of the Kingdom Hearts video games. The paper model does a good job of capturing the lovable deer's likeness in 3D form. Pepakura PDO, PDF and also JPG templates for Bambi may be downloaded here. Model design by Corbak. Build photo by Wolfose.

Papercraft Samurai Helmets

This collection of life size papercraft samurai helmets was based on historic helmets held in museums in Japan. The artist who designed the helmets is Kimura Yoshitaka. PDF templates for the helmets may be found here. If you don't know Japanese, it may take you a while to figure out which links to click. ^^ The era of the samurai lasted from the 12th century until the 1860's.

Overwatch Papercraft: Tracer

The 2016 video game Overwatch features a female character named Tracer. Through a freak accident, Tracer gained teleportation and time travel capabilities. A device strapped to her torso allows her to control her powers. This paper model of tracer was created by DeviantART member Avrin-ART. A 74 Mb papercraft template download (available here) includes Pepakura PDO files as well as photo instructions. One of the more difficult parts of the model is the transparent goggles. Avrin gives the model difficulty level a 9 out of 10.

Printable Sailor Moon Finger Puppets

This is a sampling of a collection of nineteen Sailor Moon finger puppets that were once offered by the now defunct website, Kinmoku.net. I am no Sailor Moon expert, but the collection appears to include a puppet for every major character in the anime series. The printable PDF templates for the puppets may be downloaded here. The templates are large format and should be printed "fit to page" on either Letter or A4 size paper in order for the puppets to be at a usable size.
