Cute little wall decoration I made Thursday. Thursday was a good day, a day full of things that are expected. Friday was not one of those days. Thursday I helped a friend, made this doll and had a nice easy time with the kids. I even went and played floor hockey with some friends. I like days like that. Friday held many more nasty surprises. Like finding Puke (yes that needs a capital letter as it morphed into something alive and that was it's name) all over the 18 months old bed, sheets, pillow, hair, and poo all over her PJ's. (How does a child make no noise, and then fall asleep in their puke again?) Of course I was loving the fact that she was sleeping in, so I waited to go get her until the last minute before I had to take the oldest to the bus at the local school to take her to her class 45 minutes away. I got in there and smelled the nasty before seeing it. UGGG. Of course all I had time for was a quick rub down with wipes, a change of the diaper and new PJ's. Then off to drop the other kids on their different buses. I came home, fed the littlest one and she ate just fine, no signs of being sick. After I fed her she and the 4 year old were watching a movie so I went upstairs to clean up the nasty. I came down after pulling the sheets off to find the 18 month old EATING OUT OF THE GARBAGE!
So I quickly pulled her out, scrubbed out the sheets and threw them in the wash and proceeded to take the littlest one up to the bathtub. While I was filling up the tub, I turned to check on her and she was playing in the toilet... That one of her older sisters DIDN'T FLUSH. I just about puked at this point, there really is only so much nasty a person can take in less than an hour.
The weekend came and with it came more yuckiness.
The four year old was sick on Sunday.
The seven year old was sick on Monday.
All right on to the project. Here is a pic of the supplies I used. An old box, two pieces of cardstock, corker ribbon, satin type fabric, tulle, some pink ribbon and spray adhesive. I plan on using this technique on some of the other cuts from twinkle toes, as I think it turned out REALLY cute!
I used the little dancer from the cricut cartridge twinkle toes, but you can use this with any of the cuts, or any you come up with as well. I cut one doll at 11.25 out of the pizza box, and one out of brown cardstock. Then I did the skin layer out of flesh colored cardstock.
I then cut out the skirt layer at 11.25 and used spray adhesive on the front and a glue gun on the back. I just cut small slits in the fabric to bend it around the cardboard. I have the letters side down because you could see through the fabric. Keep this in mind as you cut things out, because sometimes you can't just flip a layer over, because it won't match up.
Here is the front side after.
I then cut a strip of tulle twice as long as the skirt and folded it and glued it down. I just folded both ends over to the back.
I did the same thing to the shirt, and then added a piece of pink ribbon over the top of the skirt to hide the top of the folds.
for the slippers I used the same technique as above. I cut the cardboard so the ribbon could be added. Then I took the ribbon and made it look to be wrapped around her legs.
This is a close up of the shoes. So cute!
I took the corker bow apart and used three on each side. Then I put a little bling inside. I then used my colorbox catseye brown to color the hair. I just used the side of it. I inked around all the edges and the buns darker, with a part and some strands.
I then drew a face with a pencil and then when I liked it I traced around my drawing with a sharpie. After I took the picture I noticed one of her shoes was coming apart so I fixed that, just ignore that part. K?
