Last Minute Gifts

This is another entry in the Hero Arts weekly challenge for last minute gifts. The idea came from my daughter Kaeli. She liked when I was paper piecing the Snowman's hat a couple of weeks ago and she said you should make some other outfits. This idea has been percolating and when the challenge was last minute gifts I decided to make a stamped version of paper dolls.

This is the front of the little gift. What you can't see is the Cats are in a little acetate pouch on the front. So they have a storage compartment. They don't have any clothes on right now.

The inside is where all the clothes, accessories, hats and scarves are stored. I attached 2 sheets of acetate.

Here are the young ladies with two of the frocks on...

A couple of fun things...

  • There are extra eyes so they can switch the eye color.
  • The gems, pearls are for necklaces and bracelets.
  • Use repositionable tape from Kokuyo to attach the paper products to the acetate.
  • The cats are made from glossy cardstock.
  • The cats need a dab of repositionable tape on them to assist in sticking the outfits.
  • Included is the white version of each piece to allow them to use as a template/color in their own version.
  • There is extra space on the dresses area to add more items.
