Intro: Tiny Dancer
How to make a ballerina.
Step 1: The Tutu
Make 15-20 tight marquis. I like to fit them together as I make them, so I can see the shape and try not to waste paper.
After you get your desired look, glue them together.
Step 2: The Body
Make a loose triangle.
Then glue another strip in a tight triangle around the loose triangle.
Step 3: Neck, Head and Hair
For the neck: Make a tight circle, then squeeze to elongate and flatten into a tight oval.
For the head: Use two strips to make a larger tight circle.
For the bangs: Cut a small piece and shape it to fit the shape of the head.
For the bun: Make a tight circle, then squeeze to elongate and flatten into a tight oval.
Step 4: Arms and Legs
Wrap paper around the edges of a quilling comb, then bend to desired shape.
