I keep forgetting to post this fun project that I worked on with my daughter a few weeks ago. FIRST, let me say this isn't my original idea - just my interpretation of a super cute project that Kristin Swain posted on the Cricut Circle blog last month. This is one of those, "why didn't I think of that" kind of projects. Kristin's project had a princess theme, but Nicole decided she wanted the characters from Peter Pan.
Nicole helped me a little bit with each of the steps. She helped decide on outfits and colors. She even inked some of the edges and applied glitter glue to a few of the characters (with my help). She loves looking at my Peachy Keen face stamps, so she decided she wanted to stamp some of the faces. That's when I realized that I didn't have any "boy" faces that would fit our paper dolls. (As cute as Captain Hook would be with big eyelashes - I didn't think it would work.) I mentioned that I could order some "boy" faces, but three year olds don't really understand delayed gratification. That's when I decided to draw some of the faces....ha ha ha. It's a good thing that she's three and loves everything that I make - who knew that making little faces would be so hard (at least for me.)
This was such a fun, EASY (and cheap) project to make, and now have all sorts of ideas for future puppets!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
