The Fairy Girls

Move over Spice Girls, the 3D paper quilled Fairy Girls are in town!!

Fairy girls

These sweet little girls were a bit of an experiment to see if making 5 of essentially the same shaped character- each with a touch of its own uniqueness was faster than making them individually. Nope, still took about the same amount of time, but it was cool watching them come together bit by bit. 

Very simple 3D quilling shapes were used with these girls. A simple dome for the body, and 2 discs make up the head. Seeing that I hand cut all my strips, it was no problem cutting larger strips to make the arms and legs.

It was fun coming up with new and fun hairstyles for these girls. If only hair in real life could be cut and styled so easily and with all the fun colours. 

Each of the girls bodies are made exactly the same and stand at 6cm (2.4in). Aside from their limbs, they are made from 3mm strips.

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

I've always had a soft spot for little Goldilocks. I mean who doesn't want a comfy chair, yummy warm porridge or a comfy bed to sleep in? I know I do!!

Goldilocks and the three bears

So here is the Kurlikin's 3D paper quilling version of the our girl Goldilocks and the Three Bears. 

All four characters have been made in the same style, all using only 3mm sized strips. The only real difference is the eyes I used for Goldilocks were inspired by the Powerpuff girls I made a while back. 

Papa bear is the tallest of the four, standing at 4.5cms (1.7in) all the way down to Goldilocks and baby bear who are around 3.5 cm (1.4in) tall.

Cookie Monster and Elmo

Cookies! Cookies! Cookies! Me love Cookies!  nom nom nom nom....

An introduction probably isn't necessary, but here are two of the greats (not to mention cutest) of the Sesame Street monsters: Elmo and Cookie Monster!

Cookie monster and Elmo

Cookie monster was a commissioned piece from a fan who knew it would make the perfect gift for a friend who was leaving the country. I'm super pleased with how he turned out, and I must admit, it was a little hard to wrap him up and send him off! I'm not sure if he can be any cuter!

Once cookie was made, Elmo was the next logical choice of monster to make. Following the same basic design as the cookie monster, he came together quite quickly. His mouth is slightly moveable to let him have a laugh when being tickled!

Both the monsters are around 4cm (1.5 in) tall. Cookie monster is a little bit taller. Both are made using 10mm strips, all fringed by hand- so loads of snipping!

Teeny Tiny Paper Devil

Let me introduce you to my teeny tiny paper devil. He looks way too cute to be getting up to any mischief!

Little devil

After a few weeks of huge projects with tons of snipping, I wanted to do something that was both quick and easy for anyone to do. So, using only the most basic techniques, it was surprising how straight forward this little guys was to put together. The most difficult part was getting his horns to play nice and curve the way I wanted. 

His ears are circles that have been squished into triangles, and his arms are simple little peg rolls. I made his feet using little teardrop shapes, and the teeniest little bit of fringing for his tail. I was going to leave the natural hole of the circle for his little belly button, but his little 'outtie' is just way too cute!

This little guy is 3cm (almost 1.5in) tall. He is made with only 3mm strips.
