Ok, I didn't manage to add it as a "download" here [link] , so I'm uploading the Paopu fruit template as a new deviation.

Tips for assembling the leaves: I've first glued the two stalks crossed, then glued them to the first star tab, then cut away the stalk parts that sticked out of the model. This way the leaves are glued inside the fruit,and not outside (uglier! :D) You can also use only one leaf, if you like it better!

IMPORTANT: Dunno if anyone would want to build it but, just in case, here it is! Click DOWNLOAD for the bigger/high res one!

You are a life saver!! Thank you so much for this!! :) My family and I are celebrating today (Happy 813!!) because Axel and Roxas are the family favorites out of the members in Organization XIII. Axel is number 8 and Roxas is 13. I'm planning on making paper palm trees in the living room and putting Paopu fruit on the trees. This will be very helpful!! :)

'k!
I usually score the lines that need to be folded with a pointy object first. That way the paper will bend more easily and with a better look. I use a cutter and a ruler to cut straight lines, and scissors for curved ones. And the paper! You'll need 120 or 160gsm paper if you think about doing more serious papercraft projects, so they won't collapse and will be sturdier and more resistant!

I'll cut/paste a comment I already did, if you don't mind!
Ok, you've got this line on the template that needs to be folded. Take a ruler, put it on the line, and pass a dried up ballpen on it, pressing a bit while doing it. Now the paper has a little dent on that line, so when you fold it, it will be really simple to do so.
That's how I score/fold! If you need more tips, go there [link] and take a look at the beginner/advanced tutorials! Look at the advanced too, since there are explanations useful for beginners too!
