Art Classroom Printables: For Dolls with Creative Minds: Plus more Classroom Stuff

Since we love to create stuff, we thought our dolls might like some creative expression, too...soooo... We made them an Art Class... And tons of classroom printables to share :oD

Here's the video on how we did it... 

Feel free to use any or all of our printables to get started on your own art room :oD
Like brick walls...

tile floor...

Classroom Doors... And to make the doors large enough, we separated them into two sections, then cut and piece them together...

Windows, a clock and an Art themed chalkboard...

Lockers for the hallway and an Art Text book...

And let's not forget, tons of art!... Copies of our summer artwork :oD

How To Print Printables:

*** To print the printables, just click on the pic... the pic with open in a new window and you can drag it to your desktop.

*** then print according to your printer settings... For background images like bricks and stuff, I like to set my printer to "fill page"

*** all links tested on  May 23, 2014

Other ideas : 
If a box is too big for you, try using these same printables on a folding doll set :oD

Free Dollhouse Printables : Windows and Doors

After our last family vacay to the cabins, we thought our dolls needed a cabin of their own... so we decided to built them one using recycled cardboard from around the house and the printables on our blog ( the nature printables) ...thank goodness for printables, because the snow was totally stopping us from heading to the craft store XD!
Here is the video to see how we made it....
And we also made some new printables for the windows and doors... They are free to download and print for personal use only :oD.... Just click the pic :oD
For a great view looking out...
... This is a beautiful reflection :oD
...what doll wouldn't love large windows?
...and of course they need door... even if they are faux :oD
...and since we love choices, we made two colors...
Well, we hope you have fun giving your dolls a fabsome new getaway :oD
Happy Crafting :oD

Stunning Easy to Make Doll Dresses for Almost Any Size Doll

Our dolls are getting the royal treatment with these new easy to make dresses... they can be as simple as  I like (with no sewing at all) to as detailed as the imagination can get (with a little light sewing). 
Katniss Everdeen inspired dress
... to make this dress, we took our no sew dress and stitched on like a ton of small folded circles of tulle, then tied a piece of glitter lace into the waist band.

Katniss Everdeen inspired dress : fire dress
... here we just sewed the folded circles to the bottom and wrapped the waist band all the way down to her knees.

Katniss Everdeen inspired dress : blue reaping dress
...and this is the basic no sew dress that started it all... made from a tee shirt.

Here is the Video on how we made it:
