AND I"M THE WINNER of This CHALLENGE!!! Challenge #10 Baby Dolls: Baby Dolls Keepsake Box

Here is my entry for the month of June for the Baby Dolls Challenge at http://alteredpageschallenges.blogspot.com/.

This is a Baby Dolls Keepsake Box.  I started with a plain papier mache box with a lid.  The photo is a scan of the top of the box.  Inside, nestled in gold tissue paper, I have stashed pictures of the three of us sisters with our baby dolls on many different Christmas mornings.  I've also tucked in some of my dolls' clothes.

Materials Used:

  • Altered Pages Collage Sheet of Baby Dolls
  • a magazine picture of doll heads in a cupboard that I cut into two pieces
  • black on white and white on black dot papers
  • brown card stock
  • photocopy of the three of us with our dolls (left to right:  Gail, Barbie, Anne)
  • cream grosgrain ribbon is secured around the edge of the cover and tied in a bow at the front center
  • The base of the box is covered with brown card stock and then wrapped around the center with a brown stripe fabric tape. The bottom edge of the box is trimmed with vintage cream lace.
This was a great project and provides a way to organize some of my family memories.
