Papercraft Jiangshi

He's unusually happy for a guy without any legs...

As much as I enjoyed last year’s Jiangshi inspired papercraft project, I wanted to focus on something a little more traditional this year. But it turns out that finding downloadable Chinese hopping vampire papercraft models online is much harder than one might think. I had originally wanted to showcase this cool jiangshi papercraft, but was unable to find the template online (let alone find a way to contact its creator).

Thankfully, papercraft artist Bamboogila saved the day with his take on the classic bouncing bloodsucker. You don’t even have to email him for the template, just download it straight from his website! If you want to customize the little guy, I highly recommend snagging FlightySpirit’s free talisman and attaching it to your jiangshi’s face.
