Corrugated Doll Making (Quilling) - Part II

Today, let us see how to make hands and body:)



For Body/Dress:
- For Body/Dress, we need to use 2 0r 3 strips of paper, depending on the size of the doll.
- Stick one end of the strip with anther. Roll it, having the flat side inside, as you did for face.
- Glue it at the end and finish the circle.
- Put the circle in between the plastic clips for 10 minutes, so that it will get hold properly.
- Gently push from centre of the circle, so that it forms a cone. Do it slowly so that it wont come off. Check the above picture.
- Apply glue inside the cone, so that it fixes firmly.
- Allow it to dry completely.

Note:
I use 3 strips for girl doll and 2 strips for a boy and attach, legs and shoes as shown in the below pictures.


For hands/Sleeve:
- For hands/sleeve, roll the strip, having the flat side inside, as you did for face.
- Glue it at the end and finish the circle.
- Put the circle in between the plastic clips for 10 minutes, so that it will get hold properly.
- Gently push from centre of the circle, so that it forms a cone. Do it slowly so that it wont come off.
- Similarly do one more. Glue inside the cone, so that it fixes firmly.
- Allow it to dry completely.
- Once they are completely dry, join them as shown in the pictures above.

There are few other types of hands too, see patterns below. Design on your own imagination:)




For Legs & Shoes:
- Choose the colour matching to the dress and take 1 strip. Use 1/2 of it for each foot.
- Roll it as a oval and glue it at the end. Two colours can also be used.
- For the legs, you can cut one strip into 4, and use 2 strips for 1 leg. Roll them as circles and paste one above another. Check the pictures below for patterns.





For Eyes, Lips, Fingers:
- For fingers, use a small bit of strip, fold it into 3 and attach at the end of the sleeve. Use the same colour as the face. See above picture.

- Start making eyes, lips either using sketch pens or you can cut small strips of paper and attach them. Or use beads or bindies for the eyes. Check the below pictures.





- You can attach plaits for a girl doll. Take small piece of strip and cut into 3 pieces lengthwise, don't cut it completely, allow 1cm of strip at the end, so that you can attach it to the head. See the pictures below.



- Decorate dress and sleeves with beads, shiny glue, paper strips, ribbons, etc.
- Allow each part to dry completely and join together.


Let's see the finished dolls next week ..... ;)

HAPPY WEEKEND!!!!
