What is paper quilling? It’s the art of getting strips of paper, rolling, shaping and gluing together to create designs. There’s a whole reddit community for it. There’s also the work of Aimie Holdorf (aka wholedwarf – great self-nickname) and these paper Pokemon! There’s no doubt that the clever rolls of paper give these Pokemon […]

Papercraft frost dragon
This Skyrim dragon is impressive. It’s hard to believe it’s made out of paper. It is, though, and deviant artist DaiShiHUN is at least kind enough to say it very hard to make!
