Sigrid Paper Doll Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

These Mommy and Me paper dolls are meant to inspire. Yours can be as simple or as ornate as you wish. You can help with the cutting, and using the Bejeweler. Don't know how to sew? Use adhesive instead. It is a great project for sharing different crafting skills with your child. We used rubber stamps, a felt bead, card stock, scrapbook paper, SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS hotfix rhinestones, pewter, Czech glass beads, wire, some findings and stamps to create this paper doll.

Step one: Use the dress from the Queens Rule rubber stamp set to stamp three images. One will be the front of the dress, one the underskirt and one the back. We used paper for the front and underskirt from Scrap Pad To Go, Dollhouse and card stock for the back. Cut out all three images. Cut the bottom ruffle off of the front and back dress. Cut the top off at the waist of the under skirt. Layer the top dress over the underskirt so that the two polka dot layers on the underskirt show. Use Quick Hold craft adhesive to glue in place. Allow to dry.

Step two: We used SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS flatback rhinestones in rose, rose light and peridot AB to embellish the edges of the front dress and underskirt. For help using the Bejeweler please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center.

Note: For step three you can use adhesive to form the flower and leaf cluster rather than stringing them together if you prefer.

Step three: With a needle and thread string, a Czech glass small bellflower mint/raspberry pink running up through the bottom, leaving a three inch tail. Add a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS rose crystal, go back through bellflower, add another bellflower, light rose crystal, back through the bellflower, another bellflower, light rose crystal, back through the bellflower and two Czech glass medium leaf olivine with/beige. Gather the thread so that the flowers and leaves form a cluster and tie in a knot. Use adhesive to attach the floral cluster to the dress.

Step four: For the wings cut a 4-inch piece of 22 gauge olive matte artistic wire. Center the wire through the top hole of the pewter butterfly wing charm. Then cross the two wires through the bottom hole and then twist the two wires together 4-5 twists. Repeat for the other wing. Then twist the four wires together fanning out the wings.

Step five: For the arms and legs cut a 3-inch piece of wire and center a Czech glass small pink silk/amber petal pink silk/amber petal. Twist the wire together. Repeat for the other arms and legs.

Step six: Sew the Pewter mini face charm to the 20mm natural felt bead. You can use adhesive if you prefer. Place a toothpick in the hole of the felt bead and center so that the toothpick is sticking out on both ends. Put a dab of adhesive inside the hole to keep the toothpick in place.

Step seven: Cut two 10-inch pieces of 3/8-inch organza ribbon in pink and two in kiwi. Use one of the pieces to wrap around the center of the other pieces and tie in a knot. Use the tails of that piece to run through the small end of the 10x19mm stamped hill tribe silver cone. Place a tiny dab of adhesive on the knot and gently pull the knot into the tip of the cone. Place the cone over the tooth pick on the top of the head and tie the ribbon around the neck. Trim the ends of the ribbons if necessary.

Step eight: Position the head, wings, arms and legs onto of the back portion of the dress. Trim any of the wires if they are too long. Apply craft adhesive to keep them in place and along the edges of the dress. Place the top dress over the top to sandwich all the pieces and hold in place until dry. We used beadstoppers to hold the sides together until dry. Paper clips would work also.
