This year, I made eveyrone nametags for their door, featuring Julie Nutting's Paper doll template. I have several of Julie's stamps, but I love the flexibility the template gave me. I had so much fun creating, and dressing these little gals to look like my good friends. I was able to even customize their hair! Check them out! Those fun chalkboard stakes I found at a local store Paper Tales! And I mounted them on tags from Julie's line made by Prima.
Unfortunately I couldn't get anyone to pose with their paper doll 'likeness' so you'll just have to take my word for it that these resemble any of us in any way! :)
I added flowers using Tim Holtz' Tattered Flowers die, and vines and buds that grew up each post.
I used brads to join and 'joint' the arms, and legs, keeping them very mobile. However noone was going anywhere once I attached each of them to the tag front!
They went together pretty quick, however I have to say creating their clothes and dressing them took longer than I thought. I think I was just having too much fun going through all my small 6x6 pads (yes, I have way too many) and finding just the right prints and colors for each of little 'dollies!.
Thanks for stopping by!
