Babushka (Matryoshka) Nesting Dolls in 3D Quilling

Who doesn't love Babushka Nesting Dolls??

This project was a challenge set by my awesomely supportive sister, who has quite the collection of nesting dolls. So what better then to make them as a special present for her 40th Birthday! 

Babushka Nesting Dolls 3D Quilling

The sizes range from a tiny 1.5 cm up to the big mumma at around 8cm tall. They all nest beautifully inside each other- which I kinda see it as them all gobbling each other up. 

Getting the detail of the faces to be progressively smaller was the real challenge. Once I got the size I liked for the smallest one, it was simply a case of doubling all the dimensions. 

Happy 40th Birthday Soni! (and thanks for sending in the photo!) Pin It
