SHAYMIN (LAND FORM)



492 / SHAYMIN - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Shaymin Land Form
Type: Grass
Species: Gratitude Pokémon
Height: 0.2 m (0′08″)
Weight: 5.2 kg (11.5 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Shaymin have a habitual trait called "Flower Bearing." Each season, Shaymin gather in a flower field somewhere and migrate from there. This behavior is called Flower Carrying because a new field of flowers grow where they land. Shaymin are also attracted to areas where there is a lot of gratitude. Their personalities are almost opposite with each form — Land Forme is shy and easily scared, while Sky Forme is courageous and playful.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 10.2 cm/ 6.3 in
Width: 11.9 cm/ 8.7 in
Depth: 12.1 cm/5.2 in
Pages: 4
Pieces: 34
Level: Easy
Designer: Brandon
Photo: PMF
NOTES: Shaymin is quite easy. Start by building the face and the legs. Then build the body starting at the face and closing at the top back of the model. After that, you build the 4 layers of leaves, the biggest one is glued on the body, then the 3 others are glued from the biggest to the smallest with a little square between each. Finally, cut the flowers and the leaves and glue them at the sides.

Download: A4 / Letter

okay. i know there's no way i could do better than that and i know you guys have probably spent ages on this, but the layers make shaymin look kind of funky. couldn't you make it with sticking up kind of leaves like a porcupine's spikes as oposed to layering the leaves?

Working on this now. So cute! Can't wait till its done!

Ruby said...

It looks amazing :D

The leaves are a tad bit akward, and fluffed up, but either way, it looks very fun and amazing! :)

What Is The Difference Between The A4 Download And The Letter Dowwnload? And How Do I Make It.. It's Somewhat Difficult For Me...

Brandon said...

Each is scaled to a different kind of paper. Letter is mostly used in the USA, and A4 is used pretty much everywhere else. Just cut out the pieces, match up the tabs with where they glue, and glue it together.

Google searching 'papercraft tutorials' may help, some of them get considerably more in depth than my simple explanation.

I really wish i could download this and make it because shaymin is just so cute but i cant download any of the ones on 4 and 5):

Kelly said...

Thank you! This is going to be my first one made! I think it's simple and great for beginners! :D

Hey, my leaves that go on top don't hug the body like on the body like in the picture, but instead hang over the edge like a goofy hat... :( but I think I can glue it to the body a little different...

PAPERPOKES said...

yeah, moving it just a little might help.

it a good idea with models like that one to pose the pieces first to see how it would look and then glue them to the body.

I don't understand how to put the "body" pieces together. Can someone please help please?

PLEASE make more gen 4 legendaries. Especially Dialga and Arceus. 2 of my favorites!!!

JohnR said...

Hate to be "that guy" but couldn't it have been full sized? the real Shaymin is only 8 inches tall, and this one is 6.3 inches. I know it would be kind of hard to scale with the exact calculations and stuff, but could you please do it for those of us without pepakura designer?

PAPERPOKES said...

we wont make a bigger one, sorry. i know its a bummer, just think that it is still a baby shaymin :P

Im not really skilled at glue, but could I still tape shaymin together? :)

Brandon said...

You could certainly try it, yeah. It might look a little different though, since tape tends to stand out.

Blu Jai said...

OMG Love it!!!!

I'm soooooo sorry to bug you guys, but could you possibly make the sky form for him? Please?
