Paper Doll Collection - New Release at Julia Spiri

Back again Crafty Friends....well what can I say, the new release images over at Julia Spiri will take some of you back to your childhood ... who remembers 'Paper Dolls'? My favourite were the ones in the 'Twinkle' comic, I used to get every week, oh my that takes me back ... I also had 'The Partridge Family' ones too!! For my DT inspiration, I created a shabby chic folding screen card, made to look like a boutique with fab array of clothes and wigs. I so enjoyed travelling back to my youth!!! Please follow the links at the bottom of the page, for more wonderful images and challenge details etc!! So without further ado I'd like to introduce ... The Paper Doll Collection

To create the Screen Card
1. 11" x 6" Card
2. Score at 2 3/4" - 5 1/2" - 8 1/4 along long side. 
3.  Fold in half at centre score line then fold at side score lines in opposite direction
4. Lay screen flat, then create a punched border using a border punch
5. To create the legs at bottom, working with half of the card at a time (2 layers), using either labels die (in my case) or a labels punch, position the cardstock half way down die and centre side to side,then cut.
6. Attach layered papers measuring 2 1/2 x 4" and 2 1/4 x 3 1/4" (x 4) to each panel.
7. Then decorate as desired. For mine, I added gold wax gilt to the top, legs and sides to create a shabby distressed look.

For the images, I printed, coloured and carefully cut out leaving to one side. I die cut 4 mannequins using floral muse paper and gilding top and legs, adding clothes, accessories and wigs then attaching to screen as shown. To make it look like a boutique, I used a Studio Light decoupaged chair topper and also a mirror topper. To finish off I added a topper with peel offs to the screen top, then placed Paper Doll as shown.
