Remember when you were little and played with paper dolls?
Well this project allows you to create your own dolls or other images with lots of possibilities!
You can use magazine cut-outs, colored pencils, markers, stamps and much more to create these easy to make standing toys.
Step 1 – If using a brown grocery sack, tear down the seam and cut out the bottom so that you have a sheet of paper, fold this in half and cut out the approximate size to fit your stamps. If using cardstock, fold in half.
Step 2 – Lay your stamps onto the paper and trace around with a pencil leaving at least a ¼” edge.
Step 3 – Use your sewing machine to stitch around the pencil mark, leaving the bottom open. Cut out around the sewn edge leaving about ¼”.
Step 4 –Stamp your images on both sides.
Step 5 – Color your images with your choice of medium – colored pencils or markers. Glue any additional bits on also.
Step 6 – Melt the beeswax pellets and brush over the images on both sides, allowing each side to dry.. Before your doll is completely dry, carefully open the bottom with a thin paintbrush handle and slide over the small plastic cup so the melted beeswax can set.
Step 7 – When the waxed image is completely cool and dry, iron between several layers of paper to remove excess wax.
Your doll is now ready for play or to display!
This process can be used to create all kinds of items such as an angel for the tree, a village, and lots more.
