Doctor Who Papercraft Printables
Crafts for Geeks
There's a nifty little craft craze for Doctor Who fans that is growing online. The artists over at Cubeecraft have created dozens of printables so people can build their own cubey geek models using paper craft. Now, thanks to Peter aka ~gfoyles and Chris aka ~CyberDrone over at Deviantart.com, you can now construct your own TARDIS from Doctor Who. Other artists have created templates for all kinds of characters, including aliens, villains, and beloved companions.
This photo depicts the 10th doctor in papercraft form by ~Rabenstolz at DeviantArt.com Click on the link below to view and dowload the template. ~Rabenstolz also posts some basic papercrafting instructions to geet you started.
So, if your desk is in need of some geeky accessories, gather scissors, craft knife and glue, fire up your printer, and get ready to get your crafty geek on!
Artist gfoyle over at DeviantArt.com posted this free TARDIS template, complete with serialized Doctor Who comic images from the '70s. Print it out on cardstock or heavy weight paper, if you can. Scissors and a craft knife are necessary, but you won't need any glue. To view or download the complete image, click on the photo to head over to the Deviant Art website.
Bad Wolf TARDIS
Check out the boxy Cubeecraft fan art templates of items and characters from Doctor Who and Torchwood. Chris has posted seven pages of Whovian papercraft, including seven versions of the TARDIS. Click on the photo to view or download any of CyberDrone's TARDIS templates.
Not satisfied with just making a TARDIS? Add a Dalek to your collection. Click on the photo to view or download this classic Dalek pattern by ~CyberDrone.
Your growing collection of models will need some characters to complete the diorama. Make all 11 doctors, or just your favorites. The photo shows you how the cubecraft doctors look when they are put together. Click on the photo to view and download the individual doctor patterns by ~CyberDrone.
For these projects, you will need a very sharp pair of non-stick scissors, a craft knife and a self-healing craft board. Amazon carries these items at great prices, and qualified orders of $25 or more ship for FREE with Super Saver shipping.
Thinking of gift ideas for the Doctor Who fan? Why not print off some of the templates in this lens, and put together a package of papercraft patterns and supplies?
DWFUN at Huxter.com has posted a collection of Doctor Who crafts and entertainment. Click on the photo to go to the DWFUN webpage. Scroll to the middle of the page to view instructions and template download for the cute and competent K-9 robot dog. Scroll down a little further for a Cassandra template, too!
Package your gift in a unique Doctor Who bag or box.
Another talented artist at Deviant Art, *The-Traveling-Itch, created this darling Rose Tyler template. Click on the photo to download the template.
The artists at Deviant Art have done it again! This time ~Browne posts a papercraft Amelia Pond template. Thought the artist admits that the template is untested and may contain mistakes, it looks like a fun experiment. Click the photo to download.
Need a quick Doctor Who costume? During the 2008 Christmas season, the BBC posted a free Cybershade mask papercraft template. Cybershades are a variation of Doctor Who's perennial enemies, the Cybermen. The only flaw in the 3-page template is a lack of gluing flaps, so you will need to create your own when you cut it out.
