Bayleef Papercraft by Carnilmo Bayleef Papercraft by Carnilmo
It's been a big while since Bay's been ready. So it was about time I got its picture here ^^.

Bayleef is one of my favorite pokémon, and this build was great. It's a straight forward build, but the leaf can be a problem, if there's nothing to prevent it from collapsing (just like Chiko's leaf). The solution was to insert a paperclip inside it, making a "bone structure" for it. It's been 6 months and the leaf is exactly where I glued it, so it works :D

Thanks a lot to :iconz8-0: for editing this beautiful model. Look for it at Paperpokés [link] in a couple months ^^ !

Amazing! She's so cute! Are the leaves around her necks glued on separately or do they connect inside?

Thanks!

The neck piece has holes so each leaf can go into. I left the tip of each leaf open, so I could fold it and glue that inside the neck, so it stays strong. After all eight are glued, you insert the second neck piece inside the first, and the leaves hold perfectly :P

Yay ^^ It's easier to do that than to have to glue the leaves on separately and have to put scaffolding =(

Awesome! I'm guessing you have to glue each and every leaf around its neck to it?

Sorta... Actually you cut each leaf hole, glue them inside and insert a second neck piece into its neck, so it stays strong.

É sério, eles ficam tão perfeitos que parecem que são de verdade :D O seu Torterra principalmente XD Também gosto muito do Bayleef, mesmo eu não tendo uma relação boa com evoluções do meio. Você tem uma queda por pokemons tipo grass não é?
