Scrap Paper Doll Kits

This trash...
made the scrap fabric alphabet I shared yesterday (with a giveaway)... and generated even smaller scraps which I  recycled into a little Hanukkah gift for my dear friend Bella.

Scrap Paper Dolls
Again this isn't an original idea, I was inspired by Carrie at This Mama Makes Stuff. I made my own paper doll templates so that I could have boys, girls, even a kitty and a pup.
Get my paper doll templates here.  I made about 5 copies of each paper doll on card stock. Then I bagged up those small scraps and some fancy bits and bobs.  I put everything in a gift bag and stapled a sample/ label to the bag.

This is going to be my go-to kiddie gift this Christmas. My "Florida Four" ages 4-7 are getting one too. I hope to find just the right box for theirs.

I'm linking up with Kim for Trash to Treasure.
