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

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. <br><br>Very nice work. You might try using collars on the inside to define the spaces it bit more.
Everyone can agree on the benefits <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ultra-tall/" rel="nofollow"><strong>UGG Ultra Tall</strong></a> of music lessons for kids. In particular, piano lessons <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ultra-tall/" rel="nofollow"><strong>Ultra Tall Boots</strong></a> have the most advantages. But, for the young student, music lessons can be a long, difficult undertaking. Parents thus need to do whatever they can to <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ultra-tall/" rel="nofollow"><strong>Ultra Tall uggs</strong></a> encourage the student and make the experience pleasant. There are a <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ultra-tall/" rel="nofollow"><strong>ugg 5245</strong></a> variety of things you can do, but one good strategy to start with is to make the student feel important. Create a mental picture <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ultra-tall/" rel="nofollow"><strong>ugg 5245</strong></a> of their potential musicianship.
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.
That's pretty damned good!
this is an amazing project!
Very nice and pretty ! I like your work *
Whoa! Why isn't this hanging in some place of honor at HQ?? This is cray-cray!
its my gift for the gift exchange, my first go at paper art
Nice! Robot looks good.
