MFT Sneak Peeks - Paperdolls To Go!

I had such a good time playing with this new Stephanie Fizer set being released this month by My Favorite Things. The set is called Isabelle Paperdoll, and I decided to stay true to the name, and create a paperdoll project. I thought maybe I should save this project for the Blog Hop, or the release party, but I just can't resist sharing it now because I love it so much!

I was inspired by one of my daughter's toys - a doll that has magnetic clothes and shoes that stick to her so you can dress her up any way you like.
I had a tin lying around from some promotion, and decided to make a travel paperdoll set for my daughter Sydney. I stamped, coloured and adhered the images to a magnetic sheet, then cut them out. Because they're mounted on magnetic paper, they stick to the tin and they even stick to each other, so you can layer the clothes onto Isabelle. I created 2 Isabelles for the set and I think I will go back and make some more clothes, so they can both be mermaids. My daughter loves to pretend play right now so this will be perfect for waiting rooms, coffee shops, etc... I tried to keep the embellishments minimal, since this will be taken in and out of my purse, or my daughter's backpack. Don't tell my daughter, but this is going into her Christmas stocking!
Hope you'll join us Wednesday night in the MFT forum on Splitcoast for the release party! Come back tomorrow for more sneak peeks k?

That is adorable.
She better not bring that with her if we're having coffee because I would be playing with it :)
Seriously, you can ask my sister how much we loved paper dolls.
