Paper Minion made a Hello Kitty papercraft toy, with two different outfits to choose from and even a blank one to make your own! ;o)
(if you do make your own design using the blank pieces, don't forget to show Paper Minion your work on Facebook or Twitter! ;o)
Three-wheeled "auto rickshaws" like these are also called "Tuk Tuks" because of the sound they make. ;o)

One Monk made lots of cool papercraft fantasy and science-fiction "Forum Hoards" that you can try for free before deciding to buy the tons of other papercraft tabletop gaming models in his webshop!
(if you were wondering where the name "Forum Hoards" comes from, it's because they are contributions from the members of One Monk's "Cardboard Warriors Forums"; anyone can participate, and every month a new Forum Hoard will become available! ;o)

The papercraft Royal Netherlands Navy Walrus-class submarine I've been showing the past few weeks was actually a project I've been planning to do for a *looong* time already, so I haven't shown you the process from the very start;
The "Alien" story begins when the crew of the USCSS Nostromo (a converted Lockmart CM-88B Bison M-Class starfreighter) on their long way to Earth is woken from hypersleep after the computer receives a mysterious distress signal and they are ordered to investigate...

The Auricon EF-7 is a Phased Plasma Gun used by the Earth Alliance / Intertellar Allicance military in the 1990's science-fiction series "Babylon 5".
Mozzarella and Bulletto from Tokidoki's "Moofia" series are a sort of schoolyard "Robin Hoods", extorting milk from the lunchboxes of bullies and giving it back to the kids they took it from!

This is basically how the hull of my papercraft Royal Netherlands Navy Walrus-class submarine will come together, with the separate "butt-joint" tabs and the ribs to give the hull its shape cut from thick carton/cardboard.
