Papercraft refers to the art of printing a design upon paper and then cutting and gluing it into a 3D fanwork model. Papercraft can be differentiated from origami, which is strictly folding, by allowing for other manipulations of paper such as allowing the use of cutting and gluing as appropriate. Often the use of a program such as Pepakura is used to help place the design into a 2D template that can be build upon.

It is very popular in a number of anime fandoms such as Pokemon and Gundam, as well as a number of science fiction fandoms such as Star Wars.
