Quilled Minifolk

Connecticut's Rebecca Jackson is a college student who first learned to quill the way so many of us do, by making pretty flowers. But when she needed small figures as characters for a video, she tried her hand at rolling strips of paper to create tiny 3-D people. Minifolk

Becca's terrific video, by the way, was one of the top finalists in Etsy's Handmade Moment Contest. Filmmakers and animators competed to make the most creative thirty second Etsy commercial. Go ahead, watch Becca's entry, and then watch it again. It's that good! Notice that not only are the people made of paper, but all of the props are as well.



After the video met with such success, Becca opened a new Etsy shop called Minifolk, from which she sells her little four inch paper cuties. Elpy is her original shop; it features handmade jewelry and accessories.

Becca would be happy to create custom designs that look a lot like you or your family and friends.

I love the Leprechaun's beard! Very cute.

By the way, I tried telling Sadie how much you liked her photos, but she now has an agent and is too busy with photo shoots to take my call!
