Recycled Kraft Project …

Hi there, wow the weather sure has changed drastically this week hasn’t it, it was so wild last night, I’m hoping its not setting the scene for as wild a winter.

I’ve been looking forward to sharing this project today. I created it a few weeks back for the autumn edition of Sarah Hurley’s Lookbook (volume 5).

This project came about because I could see the potential of some protective packaging I kept hold of when we had some free standing radiators delivered. These stacks of cardboard that concertina into a four fold mini book were undamaged (despite protecting the corners of the radiators) and a perfect size (each page/panel is 9 x 14 cm) to craft with.

The concept of the project came about after I made a couple of the Doodle Dolls (Dream a Little Dream Stamp Set). I stamped them onto plain paper, then also onto a selection of patterned papers and cut out the hair and dress sections separately to paper piece them onto the plain stamped image.

I made 5 dolls and just couldn’t decide which to include on the project, so adapted my project as I went along (as is usually the case with me anyway  LOL!) so that I was able to use all the dolls. 

You can see that that I have attached a couple of small usable mini pegs to clip two dolls to the project at a time, however three other dolls are stored in the kraft paper pocket. Depending on the day I can swap which dolls I have on show.

There are so many possibilities for this idea, the dolls could have days of the week or numbers on them to act as a calender. Maybe co-ordinate the dolls with your favourite colours / outfits. Could be fun to an entirely different colour range.

Thanks for visiting today, and I look forward to returning your visit and seeing what you have been making lately. x
