The holidays are already starting to creep up on us (where does the time go?!) and if you're like us, you're already thinking about the types of holiday crafts you're going to make.
Luckily, we just introduced some new additions to our Cheryl Mezzetti Art Doll collection that'll help you create beautiful home decor, cards, ornaments and more.
First off, you'll need to have the Mixed Media Art Doll set ($75) as your base. This die set includes all the pieces to create the body of your doll, including the head, arms, legs and torso.
Now, it's all about the accessories! Choose from either the new Mixed Media Art Doll Accessories-Angel ($100),
or Mixed Media Art Doll Accessories-Elf ($75) to create your own special work of art. Or, mix and match them together to create a one-of-a-kind doll.
Mixed Media Art Doll Accessories-Angel
Our Senior Designer, Traci Armbrust, created her own Alice the Angel art doll with help from a little crackle pain and fiber for her hair.
Traci created Ariel the Angel by adding 3-D tape to "raise" her wings from the bottom and curled the ends with a pencil.
Cheryl Mezzetti created this beautiful art doll, complete with a flower from the Album-Flower 3-D die set.
Designer Nancy Hawes put her own spin on the angel art doll by adding plenty of texture and paint.
Mixed Media Art Doll Accessories-Elf
The Mixed Media Art Doll Accessories-Elf is the perfect way to make little boy art dolls. Traci's little guy, Edgar the Elf, is even clutching a present. Wouldn't think make a cute Christmas tree ornament. We could even see him clutching a gift card instead of a present to give to someone special on your list.
Your elf can even fit in a Card in a Box-Crease die ($95.00) -- with a few adjustments, of course!
