After loads of tiny 3D animals dominating the Kurlikins blog, I thought it was time to take 3D Paper Quilling in a totally new direction. Even if you're not a fan of, or familiar with the South Park TV show- the characters of Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny have shapes that lend themselves perfectly to 3D Quilling.

Email Self-reliance is a vital key to living a healthy, productive life. To be self-reliant one must master a basic set of skills, more or less making them a jack of all trades.

I’m going to look at building a frame out of 1"x1" on the back of the board to stiffen it up. Update: Welcome, Makers!
During a dinner party last night I had a realization, don’t become to attached to things.
