I know!---why?


It was a fun day Sheila, even though my granddaughter had a cough and was running a low fever--she's better today!

I'm a bit late but I had to share this with you! I was looking at your post with my daughter and she said...that's what I want my birthday to look like when it's my birthday. So I must ask - how do you make the dress up doll?

Susan Beauchemin said...

Hi Melissa! I'm glad she liked the doll--you do mean the paper doll don't you? You can draw the doll, base included (the half circle behind the feet) on some heavy paper, I used 100lb Bristol paper. After cutting the doll out, trace it and cut a second one on the same heavy paper--glue together to make it double thick--I use Yes Paste. The stand is a long thin double thick strip, folded in half. Cut notches at the bottom of the doll's base and the top of the stand--to fit together. The clothes are made with regular copy paper. I taped cut pieces of twisty ties for the tabs that hold the clothes on at the shoulders, waist and other spots where needed. Let me know if you need more help and have fun!

Susan Beauchemin said...

Hi Dean, yes that's a pizza! My husband made it--it was delicious, although I'm afraid the picture didn't do it justice.
