Hey everyone! I've been off living in Korea for some time and it's been quite a while since I last posted... but I'm back with a vengeance! The last couple of weeks, I've been designing paper dolls. I've always loved paper dolls, and now that I'm back in the good ole' U S of A, I have all the paint and tiny brads my heart desires!

This one's probably my favorite one I've made so far. It's an articulated body with changeable bird heads. Each head is attached to a tab with an egg on the end. The tab pops out just above the doll's hand, so he holds each bird's respective egg depending on which head he's wearing!

You can choose between the scarlet ibis:



American robin:



Cockatiel:



or raven:



I have a couple more designs to upload over the next few days, but the birdboys might be my fav.

These are simply wonderful. Do the eggs actually go to the bird breed they are with? Do you have stands for them so you can pose them standing?

Thank you so much! Yes, the eggs actually go with the correct species. Sadly, the articulation of the legs means that if they tried to stand, their knees would just bend and they'd fall over. I guess they need leg braces!

LOVE these. Two of my favorite things - paper dolls and birds.

My Pre-K kids and I have been making paper dolls for the last few weeks - just some free images from the 'net - mermaids and harlequins and horses. I'm always on the hunt for brads - the old-school, brass fastener kind.

I was thinking of something like this:
http://www.collectionsetc.com/Product/clamp-waist-wooden-doll-stand.aspx?utm_source=www.google.com&utm_medium=CSE&mr:trackingCode=60E570C6-ADC8-E111-A306-001517384FBA&mr:referralID=NA

But a bit more light weight, of course. Then they could be displayed while posed. I bet between you and your hand Mom you could construct something. Smiley
