Chikorita papercraft by Carnilmo Chikorita papercraft by Carnilmo
So here she is!
The stem: I added a tooth pick into it, so it wouldn't colapse. The toothpick must reach the first horizontal fold of the leaf to prevent it from colapsing. Then I made a small hole for the toothpick in the head, and instead of glueing the 4 stem tabs on top of the head I made two cuts and glued the front tabs inside the head and the back ones on top of it. Then I reinforced the tabs from inside the head (cause actually I did the cuts wrong and ended up wit ha huge whole on her head - which I managed to fix, thank God!).
But for me the hardest part was attaching the rear legs on the body - something just went wrong there. But in teh end it all worked out amazingly!!

Thanks to paperpokes for the model, yeah!

lol!
I think the size is amazing, though almost life size. A cute baby Chikorita maybe! The model is actually around 20cm/7.9in tall.

Try to begin with Chiko! She's easy, but for the leaf!

Idk if you'd be able to make it work if you already closed the model.
As I say up there, I used a toothpick, but I think scrap paper would work aswell. And scrap is easier to glue inside the head. So, if you haven't glued the stem, or if you're still building the head, insert some scrap paper inside the leaf, so it acts as an actual "bone" to the leaf. then glue it well inside Chikorita's head. That way, if the paper is strong enough, it'll support the weight of the leaf and it will not collapse.
Hope this helps ^^!
