Inspired by the December, 2018 of Somerset Studio, let's create a winged paper doll!

I am going to link a video for those that don't have this issue, or that just want to see the process in action. You do not have to do your paper doll exactly as shown. Use this as inspiration and a starting point.

The Basics:

You will select a Tim Holtz paper doll and cut the bottom part of the legs and attach to a skirt as shown in the video. The skirt can be fabric or even pretty paper. Add wings to your doll. When you are finished, you will be attaching it to a large paper tag. ETA: As far as what I consider to be a "large" tag, the #8 size manilla shipping tag works ideally for this (6 1/4" x 3 1/8") but something close in size would be acceptable. You can decorate a manila shipping tag or create your own out of sturdy paper. Get creative! It does not need to be over the top decorated, as we want the focus to be on the paper doll, but something nice to compliment it. When you add your paper doll to the tag, her legs can hang over the bottom edge as shown or not. Either is acceptable!

Add embellishments and finishing touches to your doll and the tag.

Some ideas:

  • book page strip
  • small jewel or metal embellishments
  • rubber stamping
  • words/phrases
  • small fabric/lace/tulle details

The Video

I want you to have fun with this and use your own creativity and style. That being said, let's agree to include the following:

  • TH paper doll
  • skirt created from fabric or paper
  • wings
  • your doll should be secured on a large paper tag
  • add some decorative touches/embellishments

Package your tag securely for travel and include a note with your swap-bot ID and swap name.

Please send on time and rate promptly. Any problems or questions, please message me directly.

Newbies allowed with a well filled out profile. I will be checking through everyone before assigning partners. No recent/unresolved/unexplained 1s or 3s. I reserve the right to ban anyone I feel may not be a good fit. I will angel if necessary, once the appropriate rating has been left.

Let's make paper dolls!
