40 Amazing Papercraft Templates for the Geek Inside You

When considering papercraft, your first thought will most likely be of all that boring stuff you made in school, like paper flowers, printable seasonal cards or even scrap-booking. It doesn’t exactly sound like a hobby that stimulates much excitement, for the most of us anyway. How wrong you are.

In actual fact, papercraft can be really cool and loads of fun, especially when you build one of the geeky printable templates we have for you in this post. Can’t afford a Mac? Build your own paper version. Into vintage gaming? Build your own pinball machine or classic arcade cabinet. Huge Star Wars fan? Build your own TIE fighter, AT-AT or even the Millenium Falcon. Into Angry Birds? Why not create your own table-top version. In awe of the Taj Mahal? Build your own. The list goes on and on… You’ll love them.

All of the papercraft templates below, which may at first appear to be quite elaborate, are very easy to build. All you will need is a printer, a craft knife (I used scissors and a steak knife for my R2-D2, worked great) and maybe some glue (to reinforce the interlocking tabs), and you are good to go. Have fun :)
