    Even in Papercraft Animation, Mario Still Can’t Hit the Top of the Flagpole [Video]

    A project for YouTube user ConnorRWilson's high school computer class, this papercraft, stop motion Mario animation depicts the iconic World 1-1. It looks like the "player" is going for a speedrun more than anything, but still manages to nab the 1-Up mushroom. Like all good Mario depictions, even this papercraft Mario messes up the flagpole jump.

    This Giant Papercraft Hulk Sculpture Was Awesome And Then Got Lit On Fire

    There's awesome New Years Eve tradition in Ecuador where a whole bunch of talented artists built big paper and wooden sculptures called "años viejos," or "old years" in English. The sculptures depict all kinds of things, like the Hulk above, as well as Smurfs, dinosaurs, Shadow the Hedgehog, whatever your heart desires, really. Then, they all get lit on fire to bid farewall to the past year. Fortunately, before everything was torched, Photographer Ricardo Bohorquez got a bunch of pictures from the celebration in Guayaquil and the sculptures are stunning.

    Enormous 7-Foot Papercraft Gundam Looks Awesome, Would Not Withstand the Rigors of Space Combat

    There are some people that are destined for greatness, and then there are people like Taras Lesko who are apparently destined to build progressively larger Gundam models out of paper. In 2010, he constructed a rather impressive four-foot model of the Freedom Gundam. With nowhere to go but upward, he tackled a model nearly twice as big. Standing at seven feet, his Gundam Mk-2 weighs 10 pounds, has 1,250 individual parts, and is comprised of 720 pages of paper. While impressive in its own right, watching Lesko print, fold, and assemble the behemoth is truly jaw dropping. Read on after the break to see it all come together.

    Papercraft Glasses Have Manually Operated Papercraft Irises

    Back in the 3rd grade, I was given a pair of glasses to wear. My eye doctor was a mad scientist so he gave me some nice bifocals. That's right, bifocals, in third grade. Of course, I can't blame him for the double bridged frames that I picked out. Needless to say, I never actually wore them after the first day. If he had given me these awesome papercraft glasses though, it might have been a different story. Made by art.makes over at Instructables, these glasses --made entirely out of paper-- not only make you look like Arthur, but also have papercraft irises that you an open and shut for, well, for fun.

    With just a little paper, a mailing tube, some string, a hole punch, a little bit of glue, an xacto knife, paper and cardstock, and about 3-6 hours of spare time, you can build your very own pair by following the step-by-step guide on Instructables, if you're into that sort of thing. Then, when you're done, maybe you can try to sell them to Lady Gaga or something. Seems like an accessory she might be into. Maybe if you made them out of meat...

    Intricate Soda Can Art Made From Paper

    Artist Hasegawa Yoshio created a series of sculptural pieces using wireframe models of soda cans, bent beyond recognition or configured into strange shapes. But these soda cans (pop cans, anyone?) are not what they seem: Each is hand-crafted out of paper and acrylic, giving the cans a surprisingly natural origin. Not to mention being inherently cooler since it's made out of paper. See more after the break.

    Papercraft Camera Actually Works

    Created by designer Matthew Nicholson, the camera is a papercraft recreation of a Leica M3, a classic camera -- produced by German camera company Leica Camera -- dating back to 1954 that sold over 220,000 units from 1954 to 1966 when it stopped being produced. Nicholson opted to go the cheaper and more papery route, creating a papercraft version of the Leica M3 that actually snaps pictures.
