This is a pretty old project, actually I started to work inspired by this post on blendernation. If they can make models of wax, why can't I make models of paper? That was a challenge for me :)
The process was much the same like I describe in the tutorial.
I downloaded the Petunia model by macouno from here (Thank you very much for releasing this model! I hope you don't mind me using it.) Turning the mesh into low-poly was a bit more difficult than before, but I think the result was pretty good. I had to divide the mesh in 19 parts in order to unfold it correctly. Then I ran the bake render, result is below:
It's a complex model, so it wasn't easy to stick together. It took me, as far as I remember, a whole weekend. But I'm happy with the result:
The right hand is black for some reason unknown to me. The lighting is generally a bit off, it's a shame :/
I'm going to post more paper models soon, because I began to like them :)
Critics are welcome.
Here is the image prepared for printing (one A4 sheet, the result is about 14cm high):
