10 Star Wars Paper Projects to Celebrate Rogue One Movie Release - Paper Darth Vader by Lobulo Design

You have already probably guessed that I'm a big Star Wars fan, so in lieu of the new movie "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" coming into the box office, I have decided to do a post highlighting some amazing paper craft works that I have stumbled across in the past months. Oh say for instance this Paper Darth featured above that showcases some pretty stellar quilling skills by Lobulo, showing bad old Darth in all his glory, quite literally. Also included in this post is a mixed media cardboard AT-AT Walker, a papercraft Millennium Falcon, an origami TIE Fighter, paper portraits of the Star Wars characters and so much more!

To all of you Star Wars fans, myself included, I love seeing all of the wonderful paper art that has been created around the classic George Lucas movie. Oupas Design, based in the heart of the city of Porto, Portugal, has done just that for the company Blip, that has a team that goes by the name “Millennium Falcon”.

The graphic design studio and team of four: Cidália, Joana, Sofia and Tobias (the cat), whose work is centered on illustration and set design, with their ultimate medium of choice being paper and cardboard and they build on a varied scaled of tiny pieces for stage and event designs, to a larger than life sized cardboard cities. Blip had a desire to transform their work station by adding a replica of the spaceship from Star Wars, but with their team color: green. Oupas ultimately made their dream come true by constructing a paper craft spaceship measuring 1,20 meter wide.
