When I’m offered free products to post on my blog, I don’t always participate. But this book sparked my interest and when I was invited to participate in a design challenge, I got excited. The book comes with glitter glue, ribbons, embellishments, stencils and paper to design a fantasy wardrobe. It also has these itty bitty hangers to display your fashions on. Perfect for girls 8 and up, wouldn’t you say?
So part of this promotion is that 2 copies of this book will be available in the next week for giving away to you, my dear readers. Please comment if you’d like to enter. There will be 2 winners chosen randomly.
The other part of this promotion is the design challenge I mentioned above. While I love working with paper, it had been a while so I really had to stretch my brain to come up with something unique. The entry is a picture of a fantasy design using the items from the book. I decided that I wanted to have a nice background for my picture. And that’s when I had the idea of making a diorama. The first one I’d made since 4th grade Bible class. I think I made one of Moses. I have this specific memory of comparing my shoe box scene (I didn’t know they were called dioramas then) to everyone else’s and realizing that I *really* couldn’t draw.
Well, nothing much has changed in my artistic skills since then except that I’m a whole lot better at using the computer to make up for my weaknesses. I made a paper doll and lined a USPS box with felt. Here’s my entry:
A little angel glowing in her dressing room. And see that big pink skirt in the back? The ruffle is a paper towel that I fed through my ruffler. That was new to me and turned out well for paper doll clothes.
So if you have a daughter you like crafting with, or just enjoy playing with paper, you might consider this book. This was a fun crafty project for me. And for the record, I didn’t recieve any $ for saying so.
