They're all so boxy. A fearful quadrilateral symmetry.

Also, Paper Putin, previously

Wow, strangely enough, the Paper Putin post has been deleted from englishrussia.com Conspiracy?! No wonder I couldn't find it with Google. Might be tough to find another copy unless you speak Russian. I can testify that "russian doll" (due to matrioskiy) is futile, as well as "Putin paper folds" (putin closes moscow newspaper).

Not exactly a double, but that's only 4 posts down. Is "Papercraft" the Next Big Thing on the Internetz?

MetaPaper

Wow, I never noticed that... I'd have probably just shoved the links in there otherwise.

What good is a "limited edition" of something given away for free on the Internet?

You'll see, rlk, as soon as you make one out of "a standard piece of A4 letter paper".

Awesome--perfect rainy day afternoon stuff to get 2 little boys off the Wii. They're now totally absorbed in assembling Kirby, Mario and Sonic and all their pals.

Thanks!!

I came across this page a few weeks ago. Ever since then, I've been waiting to be invited to a potluck where it would be appropriate for me to bring a whole bunch of these, each containing a single stuffed mushroom.

If someone could point me to a printable papercraft Soma cube, I'll be most happy.

For paper Soma cubes, try soma-en.pdf

The model is based on this book: Steve and Megumi Biddle, The New Origami, St. Martin's Press, New York, 1993, ISBN 0-312-08037-9.

A note: the person who developed this method used seven 1.1m long strips of ticker tape, so try to find a good ticker tape source before starting.

puzzler: Thank you... however, I'd already stumbled upon that same PDF, and those aren't cut-out figures; rather, it's a paper-strip folding method. I realize that it shouldn't be too hard to design my own... but I'm just too darn lazy, not to mention tridimensionally challenged as well.
