DIY Project: Kokoru Paper - Minion

I attended a Kokoru Craft party by Crafty Singapore, I don't know anything about Kokoru papers so after attending the workshop I did some Google search.

There's not so much in the web but what I found out is that Paper Kokoru stands for COlored-CO-RRU-gated paper, which is corrugated colored paper, and it's a product from Indonesia.

Before you could start making we should learn some basic shapes.

You could find a booklet in 7 Unique Creation with Kokoru here and or watch this video tutorial.

Let's start doing the basic shapes :-)

After you have practice doing the basic steps now it's time to have some fun!

Kokoru Minion

Saw a video tutorial here it's in Bahasa Indonesia so am going to try to give you a step by step instruction below.

What do we need
  • Glue gun
  • plastic eyes
  • Yellow Kokoru paper (2 strips, 1A4 )
  • Blue Kokoru Paper (2 strips)
  • Black Kokoru Paper (1 strip)

1. Start by making 1 blue and yellow round shape, I used 2 strips for each color.

2. Push out to form a dome shape.

3. Apply some glue to close the shape.

4. Now with the A4 Yellow Kokoru cut out 5 X 13

5. Now let's make the body. Roll the yellow paper into the blue and yellow round shape.

6. Take a strip of blue Kokoru and cover the bottom part of the yellow body.

7. Now let's do the legs.

Cut 3cm of the yellow Kokoru paper and 1.5 cm of black Kokoru paper.

Roll the Yellow Kokoru, then roll the Black Kokoru over the yellow.

Attach the legs into the body

8. Let's do the straps.

Take a 3 cm blue strip and cut into half

Glue the 2 strips into a L shape.

Glue the straps into the body

9. Now the eyes
Glue into the black Kokoru paper the plastic eyes.

Attach it to the body and there you have it... 

I know I know my minion looks like R2D2 but then I had fun doing it. It's still cute.

I was using a glue gun to assemble my minion (I did burn myself a couple of times), I think I would ask my students to use a double adhesive tape and craft glue (transparent of course!)

Enjoy! Share with me your pictures if you decide to make this. :-)

And the lucky person that got this is.... VS Lin!!
