Faux Rolex Watch Papercraft

I am not entirely sure why someone would want to design a paper model of a faux Rolex watch, but then again who am I to talk? ;) The template for this model has no color, so to achieve the effect seen in the photo it must be printed on gold colored card stock. A download of the watch is available here. Photo and papercraft design by Matthew Nicholson.

Papercraft Rhinoceros

Here is another nicely detailed paper model based on a 3D model from the Zoo Tycoon 2 video game. This time we have a white rhinoceros! White Rhinos were once on the brink of extinction. But through conservation efforts their numbers have increased. The species is still, however, in danger from poachers. The template for this papercraft may be downloaded here.

Origami Christmas Advent Calendar

Christmas origami is not all that common, but here is one cute example: an advent calendar! This creative calendar consists of tiny origami bags that can be filled with treats. The bags may be scattered across a table top as is shown in the photo or they may be pinned to a string and hung like a garland. Information on how to construct the calendar may be found on the DIY blog, Look What I Made.

8th Anniversary!

Today marks the eighth anniversary of Tektonten Papercraft! It has been my practice on anniversary day to take a look back at my papercraft designs from bygone years. With the release yesterday of the Doctor Strange movie, the choice of which paper model to feature this year seemed obvious. This model of Doctor Strange's Eye of Agamotto was originally released 7 1/2 years ago. It is one of my first papercraft designs! The original post with a download of the template may be found here. Thank you everyone for your support over the last eight years!
