Everyone, it's now time to have fun folding some paper toys after you have prepared a pair of scissors, a glue, and your favorite "paper toy template" (展開図)♪ On pixiv, the tags "paper toy template" (展開図) and "papercraft" (ペーパークラフト) are used by artists who like handicraft when they publicize their illustrations. The cute graphics of characters with head/body ratio of 1:1 make us want to fold many paper toys and decorate our desk with them. It's hard to resist immersing ourselves into these detailed handicrafts and we might soon find ourselves furring our brows in concentration, trying to fold a difficult template.
Today, we have gathered some illustrations which will make you want to create your own original paper toys. Enjoy!
