A lion, a penguin, a bull, a walrus and a mammoth, oh my! Resident Designs offers kits that allow you to create a paper sculpture of your favorite creatures. Puzzles and gingerbread house kits have become a holiday thing in my family. It Thanks to Trader Joe’s we’ve already made a gingerbread turkey on Thanksgiving Day. I think this is the perfect gift for some holiday family bonding time. (I am counting on the eggnog to numb the pain of any paper-cuts this may induce and hopefully following a complicated set of instructions should provide hours of distraction so we don’t end up discussing politics.)
Resident Designs is a Pittsburgh company that makes the paper sculpture kits right here in Pittsburgh. Kits come with pre-cut paper, glue and instructions for assembling your paper sculpture. The penguin is available in the requisite Pittsburgh black and gold color scheme.
There is also a video offering assembly instructions:

There was a vendor at the Handmade Arcade who had a Scherenschnitte-style lampshade of a city skyline that had a Godzilla shadow appear when the light is turned on. Any idea who the vendor was?
Might it have been Go Carr Go? http://gocarrgo.com/
I looked and didn’t see a lampshade but sounds similar.
