Despicable Me Minions

Who wouldn't want thousands of these little guys wondering around your house, helping you hatch your next nefarious deed? These little minions from the awesome animated movie Despicable Me are the latest minikins to join the Kurlikin's bunch!

Seeing that all these guys are the same shape and size, making them was a breeze. Once I worked out the best way of creating their bodies, it was simply a matter of making 3 of everything. 

This is the first time I have tried quilling with a super wide strips that I cut myself- 3cm in this case, to make their bodies. It was much the same as normal quilling, but took loads more paper! So in doing this, their bodies are solid paper, making these little guys super sturdy!

Each of these adorable minions stand at 5cm (2 in) tall. Their bodies were made with an assortment of strip sizes. For their heads and bottoms, 6mm strips were used. To make their body, 3cm wide strips were cut. All the detail ie. eyes, feet and hands were made from 3mm strips.
