This adorable little printer papercraft comes from the spanish web blog Papel Continuo. For those of you who don't know, Papel Continou is advertised as a "Design, art, music, popular culture and freakismos retroactive." (translated as per Google Translate) Indeed, the site is a truly fascinating read, not only do they report on new art styles and fashion and music but they also apparently love retro and geek culture too. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who enjoys Thinkgeek or Anthropologie and even though it's in Spanish, it will make you want to learn it.
The model for this comes from Papel Continuou's extensive Flickr feed: http://www.flickr.com/photos/papelcontinuo/44633014/ It's an amazingly cute yet simple model and should take any skilled papercrafter only 5-10 minutes. It's pretty much all geometric cubes (Rhombus!) and is fairly simple squares. The only semi-difficult part is the mouth, since you have to use an Xacto knife to cute at mouth and top of the body to feed the paper through. I suggest cutting this section and feeding the paper through BEFORE you glue the body- it will make your work that much more easy.
