Marie Antoinette Ribbon Doll

 When I saw the new Sweet Shop Ribbon packs from Gwen Studios, I knew I just had to make up some ribbon dolls! 

As you can probably tell, I had loads of fun putting these dolls together.
The assorted ribbons are just so colorful and pretty!

I am provided with product to work with each month.

Supplies used:
Watercolor paper 
Butterfly die cuts
Stapler and sharp scissors
Tacky adhesive and glitter paint.

Make 1 copy of the paper doll body and 2 of the outfit of choice. 

Glue the body to some watercolor paper. Adhere the first outfit and cut out as shown below. 

Cut out just the top portion of the second copy of the outfit. 
Cut assorted lengths of the ribbons and trim. Notch the end with scissors to keep them from fraying. Staple two of the wider ribbons to the doll base.

Add more ribbon, stapling as you layer. cover any exposed staples with some extra ribbon at the waist. 

 Adhere the top outfit, carefully aligning with the face and head. 

Cut out some of the 'sweets from the ribbons for extra embellishments. Cut a butterfly in half and adhere to the dolls back for 'Faerie' wings. Add a touch of glitter as a finishing touch. 
These were so much fun to make, I could have made them all day!
