Make R2-D2 mailboxes out of paper.

Paper R2-D2

When the U.S. Postal Service launched several hundred R2-D2-skinned postal drop boxes around the country last year, it also quietly released a printable paper craft version for Star Wars fans who don't live near one of the limited edition mail receptacles. Being that I don't have good enough quality paper or glue stick skills to accomplish such a feat myself, I let the pros do the work then post their shots to Flickr.

Ron over at has put together a wonderful paper rendition of the lovable droid. While not as intricate as his Howl's Moving Castle or as nerdy as the paper weighted companion cube from Portal, I'm thinking about making one of these for some cubicle kitsch.
