Mitsubishi Endeavor Origami Commercial

I just saw a unique thing on TV today, it's the commercial of the 2006 Mitsubishi Endeavor that features origami, with trees, a dragon, and deers. It's similar to the United Airlines "Dragon" commercial during Super Bowl 2006 which also had paper as the star. This video is hosted and brought to you by the Mitsubishi Motors company, it is available thru their website:

Harvest Moon Papercraft - Dog

This is the second part from, it is a basic paper model of a farm dog. Again this is from the Harvest Moon Series of video games and was created by Keicraft. You can look here for the first part of this paper model series (which was a cow). The paper model layout is in PDF format and comes with instructions.

Harvest Moon Papercraft - Cow

We've got a new cute paper model of an "ushi" (Japanese for cow) from, this is the site of a very popular "farming" video game in Japan known here in the US as Harvest Moon. For those not familiar with this game, it is a simulation of how to run a farm, from breeding cows to planting crops and everything in between. For more information about the game check out the links below. This paper model is in PDF format and is pretty basic so beginners would have an easy time building it, once again this was created by the very skilled people at Keicraft.

Howl's Moving Castle Papercraft

One of my favorite movies from Hayao Miyazaki is finally on DVD, Howl's Moving Castle ( Hauru no ugoku shiro) was an Oscar nominee for Best Animated Feature Film for 2005. This is probably one of the best free papercraft models in my collection and it took me four days to complete it. The model is highly detailed and has moving parts, particularly the wings, this is considered a paper craft model and at the same time a paper automata because it's got the mechanisms for movement. If you haven't seen the movie, I highly recommend you see it, buy or rent it on DVD. This Howl's Moving Castle papercraft is hosted by Epson Japan and is available for both Windows and Mac users. The files come in two parts, a guide and the pattern itself and is really huge, the pattern is 54MB and the guide is 15MB for Windows users, it's even bigger for the MacOS crowd.
This Howl's Moving Castle papercraft was printed on A4 paper by a Canon Pixma iP3000, If your having a hard time understanding the instruction guide(Japanese), you can download an English translation for it below, courtesy of rose-rote. Check out some detailed photos I took of my model at my Flickr page.

Giraffe Paper Model has a cute giraffe paper model, the giraffe is holding a blank placard which you can sign with whatever you like as long as it fits within. It comes with a circular shaped based which it needs to stand on. This is good for displaying messages on your desktop at work or home. Once again, this beautiful model was designed and developed by KeiCraft.
