Snow Maiden of Color Paper

Funny and simple crafts based on a paper cone are familiar to everyone. We will tell you how you can make this craft more interesting, using the simplest elements of the quilling technique. As the New Year approaches, we will make the Snow Maiden. First a cone is made. We made it big enough to have room for decorative elements. The base of the cone is about a third of a circle with a radius of 14 cm (just fit on an A4 sheet). Hands are cut from the same paper.
First a cone is made
A white paper is needed for the face, so we make the head separately. The shape of the cylinder fits it more than a cone, and then we close the top with a cap. The height of this cylinder was about 3 cm. We drew a face with felt-tip pens, because the pencil drawing next to the saturated color of the paper looks too pale.To make the face turn red, we used red watercolor.

The first decorative element is fur, which will decorate hem, sleeves and cap. To make it, you need to cut a strip of white paper about 29.5 by 3.5 cm, fold it in half along the long side and make cuts on the fold side with an interval of 0.5 cm, leaving the edge 1 cm wide untouched. Next, the strip is smoothed out, the uncut edges are glued together overlap, it turns out the tube.
The hem is decorated with snowflakes made using the simplest elements of the quilling technique. First, a tight spiral is made of a narrow strip of paper (you can buy it or cut it yourself). The paper can be wound, for example, on a knitting needle, and then carefully removed from it. Then you need to ease the pressure on the edges, the spiral unwinds a little, turning into a free spiral. The edge is fixed with glue. When the glue dries, you will need to put your fingers into a diamond shape. Finally, the diamonds are glued together, it turns out a snowflake.All described elements are shown in the figure in order from left to right.

The edge of the sleeve is decorated with fur on both sides to make the sleeve look more voluminous. And one more decoration is based on the quilling technique. The strip of paper on both sides is twisted into identical free spirals, which are fixed with glue, and the remaining unused paper is bent transversely at an equal distance from them. In the place of contact of the spiral is also fixed with glue. The finished structure is glued to the sleeve.

The basis for the cap is a tight spiral. To save time and paper, we twirled it on a felt-tip pen, and then the remaining hole was decorated with a pompon, made just like fur. To give the helix the shape of a cap, you need to gently push the layers to shift. Having achieved the desired result, we fixed the position of the turns, gluing a strip of paper from inside. The bottom of the cap is bordered with fur.

Now that almost everything is ready,You can glue the head, hands and decorations for the hem. The bottom of the hem is decorated with fur, the collar and the vertical edge are also made of fur. With the help of the latter, you can hide the place of gluing cone. Snowflakes are arranged symmetrically at the bottom of the hem. The last detail is the hair. Strands are spirals with 1-2 turns with long ends. These loose ends are glued to the top of the head. To make the Snow Maiden's hairstyle look beautiful, it is better if the length of the strands gradually increases from the temples to the back of the head. It remains to glue the cap, and the Snow Maiden is ready.
