With the recent craze of people queueing up at 12 midnight waiting at McDonald’s outlets to get hold of the latest Despicable Me Minion toys from the Happy Meal set, I definitely couldn’t be bothered to join in the minion craze. But my 2 kiddos love em’ so what has a mum gotta do? Talked about the things I had to do for my children!

I actually ended up making these minions from toilet paper rolls. Tried googling loads of sites for template that I can just download and print out but nope.. no such luck… so I hand draw them myself. To be honest, I have phobia of drawing things as I’m not good in drawing but because I love my kiddos and mummy promised to give them minion toys… sigh…

What you need:

  • 2 piece of A4 colored paper (yellow and blue)

  • Empty toilet paper rolls (I used 3 rolls)

  • Scissors

  • Double-sided tape

  • A black marker pen

What to do:

  1. Cut the yellow colored A4 paper according to the length of a toilet paper roll (enough to cover the entire roll)

  2. Put double sided tape across each corners of the yellow paper cut-out.

  3. Tape the yellow paper cut-out to cover the toilet paper roll.

  4. Cut the blue colored A4 paper about 1/3 of the height of a toilet paper roll to make the overalls jeans for the minion.

  5. Repeat step 2 for the blue colored paper and tape it around the toilet paper roll from the base.

  6. Use your creative hand drawing skills and start drawing the minion face and everything else using the black colored marker pen (I printed a sample of the actual minions faces so I can refer to them when I draw mine)

  7. Repeat the above steps for the next minion(s).

The expressions on my kiddos face… priceless… and worth embarrassing my hand drawing skills…

The end results in close-up shot!

I hope you enjoy reading my tutorial and do give it a try! :)
