gettin' crafty: fabric scraps paper dolls

christmas times a comin' and that means gettin' crafty with some gifts.
one of my most favorite crafty bloggers makes these really cute
fabric scraps paper dolls for birthdays and special occasions
and they would be perfect for two little girls i know.
what you need:
a container of some sort
(i found these wooden boxes with latches and handles at hobby lobby)
fabric scraps
ribbon, rickrack, or other notions
good children's scissors
i also used paint, scrap booking paper, and good old mod podge to decorate my boxes

draw your "dolls" and make copies on card stock.
you can find outlines online if drawing isn't your thing.
i drew mine to look like the girls.
i painted the sides of my boxes pink and mod podged
coordinating paper on the front and back.
you can sand the edges of the paper once dried if you don't get it cut exact.

fill ziplock bags with scraps and such to decorate the dolls with.

add in the scissors and glue so the little designer has everything she needs.

i can't wait to give these away!
