Paper doll extravaganza!

As I sat down to play with my new cartridges and Cricut Expression I pulled out my paper doll cartridge. I wanted to make a set of dolls for my neice for her birthday. My original intent was just to make a few dolls and hair/clothing then laminating and velcroing them so that the outfits and hair could be swapped out without them tearing. Then my mind just went on and on and I ended up with a whole set up! I can't believe this all came out of my head and I created it in less than 12 hours. The castle scene is made from four 12x12 sheets hinged together with cardstock. The grass folds up towards the castle. When you fold in the dragon side the back has a pocket for the dolls and all their accessories. When you fold the tree side in there are ribbons to tie the two sides shut so nothing falls out. :-) This was entered in the Cricutters Anonymous Challenge #32 All in the Family Challenge. Make something for a family member.


The sun came from Create a Critter

The tree from Serenade (the leaves were stamped)

The wooden planks on the castle door came from Pooh Font.

Everything else is from paper dolls cartridge.

The doors on the castle open and close.

The pillars on the castle have 3D foam behind them.
