Fairy Land Paper Doll Tin

Join us tonight right here in the TSG Forum for our Friday Night Chat!
Everyone is welcome and we love to meet new people :)

Hello TSG Friends, it's me Christine with you again today with a Dollar Find Friday project to show you.  Our daughter is leaving shortly to spend a week with her cousins, 3 of them are sisters aged 3, 5 and 7 years old.  They are just sweet girly girls, and I thought I'd make a present for her to take along for them, a little tin full of fairy paper dolls with the sweet set The Fairy Best from There She Goes.

First I stamped and colored up a number of the images from the set in very girly colors, and punched out a number of 1 1/4 inch circles and cut them in half.  These will form the paper doll stands.


As you can see I added some pretty touches of glitter to the fairy wings. 


Here is the set of paper dolls together...


To form the stand, all you do is cut the circles in half, then cut a slit in the rounded top center, as well as the center of the "doll" and slide them together. 

Then the Dollar Store Item, actually it's not from the Dollar store, but it was a tin I had on hand at home, but you could easily find a tin like this at the Dollars store.  This one is about 6 x 10 x 4 inches.  I like that it has a window on top. 


I decorated the outside of the tin with Designer paper, corduroy ribbon and some pretty felt flowers and buttons, and then spelled out Fairy Land in some Sizzix letters.  As you might be able to see I also decorated the inside of the tin too with some designer paper.  I trimmed it to 6 x 12 and then at the 5, 6  and 7 inch marks I scored the paper folding it up to create a separation in the tin.  



On one side of the tin I put the completed paper dolls, and then on the other side I put stamped images so that the girls can color and create their own set of dolls.  This way it's an activity to play with and create with.  I know it will make for an afternoon of fun for the cousins.  


Here's another look at the outside of the tin.


And everything inside the tin...


I'll have even more pictures of the project on my blog if you're interested :)  Thanks for joining me for some Fairy Land fun!
