Recreation for a Rainy Day...

BLOG VILLAGE Recreation Carnival Post #5 of 25... The Paper Dolls here at PJ's Paper Doll Cut Outs join me in welcoming everyone to read this entry. We hope that you enjoy yourselves!! I'll see you on your entries or blogs if you are just passing through!!!

Share your paper doll memories by leaving them in the comment section! With your permission they will be added to our September Issue of PJ's Paper Doll
Memories eNewsletter. Help us spread the news about paper dolls.

When outside recreation is out of the question due to the weather or because you are under the weather, cutting out paper dolls will cure the boredom! All you need is a pair of scissors and an active imagination to begin an adventure in paper doll cutting. When you have a book filled with several outfits, an imaginary story emerges that is worthy of being written down and published someday!!
So...when the next rainy day or hospital stay get in your way, bring out the paper dolls to chase away the doldrums. Keeping in mind to...

Poke holes under her arms,
And along the dotted lines,
Trimming her up to look just fine!
Cut above the dotted lines
On her hats for each dress,
Tilting them all at a pretty angle!
Cut below the dotted lines,
On her shoes and her boots,
Squeezing her feet so they won’t get tangled!
Fold the outfit tabs
before trying each one on,
Striking an influential affect!
Bend the purses
With a couple of creases,
Giving them a dimensional effect!
Use clear tape,
if you make a mistake,
So it won’t take away from her look.
Then when your through
Use school glue,
Pasting all her “art sparks”* in a scrapbook!

*art sparks are a term that my mother and have coined to define the extra illustrations added to enhance the outfits in our paper doll books for more hours of enjoyment and for "scrapbookers". For example: a book, an animal, a butterfly or a flower. Click Here to Visit BLOG VILLAGE BLOG VILLAGE Stats:

Celebrating Our Country's Independence!!!

PJ's Paper Doll would like to wish a Happy 4th of July to Everyone!!! We will be busy today getting ready for our 4th of July Celebration over at the Franklin Field Horsemen's Association stables! It looks like there will be a big turnout tonight starting with the Trail Ride @ 5:30pm. While everyone is out riding their horses, those of us who don't or can't ride will be gathering around the barbecue grills and food tables under the Ash trees. It is supposed to reach 102 degrees today which is cooler than first predicted!

Take care and have a safe 4th of July.

I will be posting pictures of the celebration over on Mustang 'n' Cowboys.
