DIY: Mini Kokeshi Dolls (from papers)

It’s been a while since I wrote my last free tutorial. This simple model is inspired by “kokeshi doll” (japanese wooden doll). So I called them “mini kokeshi dolls”.

To make this doll, you will need:

– white paper (for the head)

– black paper (for the hair)

– 2 strips of 1 cm X 4 cm paper (for the kimono)

– 1 strip of 1 cm X 2 cm paper (for the obi)

– black and red pen (to draw a face)

– scissor

– glue

– cardstock. mine is  19 x 6 cm (then I folded in half)

Step-by-step:

1.  Make a round shape of 7/8” from white paper. It will be easier to use a puncher.

2.  Make another round shape at a same size, this time use black paper.

3.  Fold in half.

4.  Cut (create a hair shape).

5.  Unfold, now you have the hair.

6.  Mount the hair onto the head.

7. Draw a face.

8. Prepare the kimono strips.

9. Prepare the obi strip.

10. Place (& glue) the right obi onto the left one (see illustration).

11. now you have the kimono.

12. place the obi.

13. mount the kimono onto the cardstock.

14. mount the head.

done! very simple & easy to make :)

till next time..
