My Little Paper Doll Book

My Little paper Doll Book Clare Charvill Graphic 45
Hello there and happy Sunday to you.  I'm sharing my latest make here on my blog and You Tube channel today.  The latest Penny's Paper Doll Family collection by G45 took me back to when I was small and fun filled days cutting out the paper dolls that came in the Twinkle comic - my regular weekly read ........ shout if you remember it too:-) 
This relatively quick and easy little book to make as a great gift or stocking filler for any little person who loved to dress up paper dolls.   the book has two pockets, magnetic dolls that can be mounted on the pocket fronts and lots of outfits to dress them up in and colour too. 
 There's enough paper in the pads (I used sheets from the 12 x 12 and the large patterns and solids pad) to make a few of these little books too. If you'd love to make one yourself I've put together a PDF Tutorial to go with the project available from my website via this link
 If you'd like to see the full project just click on the video below. 
Our October Giveaway will launch on Wednesday so do call back then and leave a comment to take part. 
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.  Thanks for calling by and look forward to catching up again soon.
