Picture of Quilling Robot
This is my gift for the Instructables Gift Exchange.  It was inspired by Russian artist Yulia Brodskaya paper art creations who I talked about in one of my previous Monday Blog Round Ups.

Follow these easy instructions to make your own awesome ROBOT!!  Or adapt my technique to make a different design.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
There aren't too many materials for this one.  You probably have most of them in your home.

1. Card stock paper - you could probably do this with other paper, I liked using card stock because it is structurally sound
2. Super glue - I went through 5-6 bottles of super glue, just saying that stuff always goes too fast for me
3. Scissors
4. Pencil and Marker
5. Ruler
6. Thin rounded object - i used the metal point on a compass (the kind used for drawing circles)
 
I use Elmer's glue all for my quilling and it works fine. I've been quilling for over 50 years. The trick is to use as little glue as possible when filling in collars (the quilling strips that surround other quilling strips) The technique is also called banding.

Very nice work. You might try using collars on the inside to define the spaces it bit more.

That's what I did wrong with my butterfly, I didn't use hot glue! Stupid, stupid, stupid...!

dont use hot glue, i tried it and it made a mess all over my image (gets stringy). use super glue!
Mine's almost stringless, it's amazing stuff.
