This week is a simple little DIY project for you: making Christmas (or any other holiday) cards for your dolls!
What you’ll need is:
- Cardstock or paper in any colour – you can most certainly use scrap pieces and I encourage it!
- Pens – thin ones in multiple colours
- Little holiday-stickers
- White-out/correction pens
- Ruler (optional!)
So I found these scrap pieces of coloured paper that were mostly square to begin with, I’m going to pretend that they are. I folded over the edge until I had a size of a card that I liked (one half of the card is 1.5″ x 1″ – so unfolded the card is 3″ x 1″). You can cut out as many or as little of these as you liked – I decided to cut out 7 of these so I would have 1 card per doll.
I like to use my ruler to make sure I get a really good crease on the fold so it doesn’t look like a wimpy fold (is there such thing as a wimpy fold?). Once you’ve got a good fold into the cardstock, you can go ahead and decorate the front however you want.
You can choose to write something on the inside (or not), it’s entirely up to you. Depending on if you like to decorate for your dolls so they can celebrate the holidays as well, you could put up a string and hang a bunch of the cards up, like so:
Isn’t that pretty nifty?
