For this doll sized Mad Lib book, I printed the image found here. I printed the image on normal printing paper, then took a piece of card stock. I folded the card stock and glued the top edge of the image to the card stock. The front and back cover was finished!
For the inside, I cut some white paper and folded it. I stacked the white paper and covers unfolded and folded in half to be sure the folds all matched up. I stapled it all together near the top ridge.
I made these two bunny ear headbands with felt, fabric paint, a blank doll headband. The blank headbands I purchased at Hairhardware.com here.
I cut bunny ear shapes out of the felt and painted them with a bit of pink fabric paint. For the pair below, I used four ear shapes, two for each ear. I hot glued them together to make them more sturdy.
For this one I used only two ear shapes, which makes the ears more floppy. Modeling them is one of my Bitty Twins!I secured the ears to the headband with hot glue.
Easter eggs! I used white Sculpey Polymer Clay to make these eggs.
First I rolled a some clay into a small ball.
I shaped the ball into an egg shape by rolling the circle in my hand, but doing it more on one half of the circle than on the other.
I made seven of these and baked them. They took about 45 minutes to bake.
After the eggs were baked, I used them to make the holder. I formed the clay into a rectangle, about 3/8 of an inch thick. I placed the egg on the rectangle and squished it down.
I did this eight times. Squishing the clay around with the eggs distorted the original rectangle, so before I baked the holder I smoothed everything out and corrected the edges. The holder took about an hour to bake.
Once everything was baked, I mixed together some acrylic paint and painted the eggs each a different color. I painted the holder brown.
The eggs are hiding in the grass 🙂
Size comparison! Now the Easter baskets have colored eggs in them!
Since Easter is soon, I made some doll sized Easter baskets. This week leading up to Easter I plan on posting cute and fun things I have made to fill the basket with goodies!
In their latest newsletter, Lee & Pearl included a tutorial on how to make a doll sized Easter basket out of card stock. Here is where you can find it. The basic directions require card stock, double sided tape and ribbon. They have examples, however, of other supplies used such as embroidery floss.
For my versions, the first one I made using card stock, hot glue, and gift wrap cord. The second one is without the woven part. The handles are sturdy, as mine have two layers of card stock and two of normal printing paper.
They were fairly easy to assemble.
They are the perfect size for doll hands!
