Paper Doll Fun!!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful start to your week! I wanted to share a project that I did yesterday afternoon with you - I LOVE when my Colts blow out a team (sorry Bengals fans) - I can relax and do something like color a bunch of paper doll images while I watch the game instead of nervously biting my fingernails the entire game like we Colts fans have so often done this year. ;) So - while the Colts were playing the awesome football like they used to - I decided to use this opportunity to do my MFT Paper Dolls project I've been itching to do. It started with this $1 Gift Card Tin I found at Michael's - isn't it cute? I didn't do much to the front except add little Isabelle to it - the tin was already decorated with the polka dots to match and measures about 3.25 in. X 5 in. - so a nice little mini-tin for our dear little paper doll Isabelle here.

Here is a pic of the inside of the tin - I colored all my pieces with my Copics, cut them out and then covered them with a coat of UTEE - this was my first experience with UTEE and I am proud to report that this klutz has no burnt fingers - LMBO!! Once they were all coated - I attached self-adhesive magnets to the back.
Here's a pic of all the pieces in the set - because they are all backed with magnets - you can play with them alone like this - or....

You can dress little Isabelle on the front of the tin!! How cute is she!? I LOVE this new Paper Dolls set from My Favorite Things - Kim has an awesome Paper Doll bundle available over on the MFT website right now - it includes everything you need to make your own Paper Doll set - including the UTEE, magnets and tins!! Also - check out JoAnne's wonderful tutorial over on SCS - she shows you step by step how to do the Paper Doll project as well! Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Very nicely colored. I am ashamed to say I don't know what UTEE is? Is it like modge podge?

Ding Dong, my light went on. I did get this bundle, and saw the jar of white stuff...This must be the UTEE. Have not looked or worked with it yet. It sounds like it might be like clear embossing if (not burning your fingers) is involved...lol
