go back to pepakura and just take a look at the 3D model. If you need it you can also click the button that looks like a zipper and just go over edges in the unfolded view to see where they connect, do not click them though!

Which model are you making?
 
it takes patience man its like a big gig saw puzzle from hell. i would suggest using something thicker than just printer paper b/c wen you start resining its gonna warp.

some things you just gotta figure out by yourself you cant be lazy like this.

Are you saw numbers on each edge? Just connect same numbers together.

each edge has a number, you find the number that matches it on another part and glue the tabs, line them up so the tabs fold line meets the edge perfectly.

If you printed it correctly you should have numbers - match the numbers up (for example, locate flap 1 and edge 1, and then glue them up together). It's really simple, kind of like a large jigsaw puzzle.
 
And DONT forget to fold in the right direction(mountain folds, valley folds)

Mountain Folds:

-----------------

Valley Folds:

That should be how pepakura is set to indicate folds.
