This is a papercraft project where you can make a small gift box or greeting card. I recommend card stock paper, both are designed for regular 8.5″ x 11″ paper. Find the template for the gift box here, and the greeting card here. The greeting card can be used as a certificate too.
As you know Baby Yoda toys are nowhere to be found this holiday season, which reminds me of what happened when the original Star Wars film came out in 1977. During the holidays of that year, toy company Kenner issued Early Bird Gift Certificates (seen here on the left), because the toys wouldn’t be ready until the spring of 1978. This stop-gap measure was a huge success, and is fondly remembered by toy collectors to this day.
So I made this gift box/greeting card for fans who find themselves in a similar predicament here in 2019. I hope you enjoy! Happy Holidays.
Note: I will probably delete this in a few months when Baby Yoda toys are everywhere, much like Baby Groot was in the summer of 2014. The look of this design matches a recent 40th anniversary reissue, not the original (sorry).
Six years ago a very cool Star Wars-themed Xbox 360 was released. It featured a C3PO controller and R2D2 console that made beeping sounds just like the astromech droid. The release of this special edition console was due to the pack-in game: Kinect Star Wars.

I had a bunch of Tiny House designs ready to go when I posted that Ghostbusters one a few years back, I just simply forgot about them until now. Here is the second Tiny Home design: the Sandcrawler from Star Wars.

Actually this is more like a Braava, which is the mop version of the Roomba, but everyone calls them Roombas so bear with me. Went with a Braava because they are taller (due to the water reservoir), also the Mouse Droid looks more at home on smooth floors than on shaggy carpets.
Removed the spiky things on the roof to make the reservoir friendlier to access. Also cats like to ride these things so may as well make it flat on top.
Originally I designed this to be a Roomba but those vacuums are designed to sneak under couches and chairs, and the Mouse Droid is simply too tall.
Here is a Han Solo USB Desk Grommet that plugs into a desk grommet, obviously. This design could also come in a “car charger” variant that could plug into a cup holder. The base has LEDs that illuminate when a device is plugged in.

Jabba the Hutt’s throne room struck me as an ideal bed design, because the gangster and all his henchmen/guards also sleep in that room, so why not make a bunk bed out of it? Jabba’s Throne is the top bed, the Rancor Pit is the bottom bed.
Here is another bed design that I discarded a few months ago, because several others beat me to the punch. I’m posting it now because I felt there needed to be a design that was more functional and aimed at grown-ups.
The side engines are drawers, the top engine is a foldaway lamp. The sides of the mattress could be enclosed into the Landspeeder, but my preference is for an unobstructed mattress.
The bed would float from a small box frame underneath, or clear acrylic feet shown here. LED running lights could be placed underneath, which is all the rage with floating beds nowadays.
