Decorative Doll Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

This doll is a unique creation that was dreamed up by our fabulous designer. Using lead-free pewter charms, silk ribbons and an organza bag, we have created a decorative doll!

Step one: Using your needle and silk thread, attach a pewter arm charm to each side of the organza bag using a simple knot. Tie your pewter artgirl charm to one of the arms. Continue to attach two pewter leg charms at the bottom of the organza bag. Using the same technique, attach the pewter dream charm to the middle of your organza bag. Trim any excess string with scissors.

Step two: Insert your silk ribbons into the bag to make the body of the doll, leaving excess ribbons hanging out for an artistic touch. Pull the organza ribbon strings tight and thread each string through a hole on the side of the face charm in front and tie a knot in the back of the bag.

Step three: Insert a piece of cardboard into the top of the organza bag, being careful to have the silks behind it. Apply E6000 adhesive to the back of your bold crown pewter charm. Hold firmly onto the organza bag with the cardboard to prevent spreading of adhesive. Remove cardboard and let dry thoroughly before handling.
