I really wanted to make a homemade birthday card for O, and when I saw this I knew what I had to do :) I printed the doll on cardstock, cut her out, and painted her with watercolor paint. After I painted her, I laminated her. I traced around the doll to create an identical back, so the card could open. I taped them together using white labels.
I cut dresses out of scrapbook paper, and then I laminated the dresses. I put a small sticky magnetic square on the back of the doll and on the back of each dress. Then I put magnetic squares in the file folder, so O would have a place to keep her doll and all of the dresses.
She's going to love the dot file folder!
This was an easy, fun, and quick project, and I hope O likes it. I'd really like to make shoes for the doll, but all of the shoes that I made looked ridiculous. I may work on them again later if she asks for shoes (and I'm sure she will!).
Perfect thoughtful gift to make with your daughter or for her.ReplyDelete
Laminating is a good idea. My heads spinning with all these great ideas.
That is such a cute idea! I love the colors and patterns you used. Very fun and fresh!ReplyDelete
This is such a cute idea, I think I might just have to try it. I am not very crafty but I think I can pull this off. How old is your daughter? I am new to your blog and wondered if O likes it will my daughter like it as well.ReplyDelete
