Feeling Crafty: Old school Japanese paper dolls!

It’s good to be back with DIY’s! The last two weeks had me so pressed for time that I literally forgot where my supplies were. And although I made this piece sometime back, her Obi wasn’t finished. I clad in her in her favorite obi last night and put her off to bed, to dream about her favorite cherry tree and her beautiful prince who later at the break of the dawn swept her off her feet in a white horse to a place I’d love to call Atlantis! She is ready to go to a foreign land, to a place where she can live happily ever after. Read: packed to be shipped to a friend I dearly love.

On another note: I will be creating a couple of angels in a similar way for my Christmas tree! Aren’t they fun?

If anyone would like a tutorial, write me back or leave me a comment and I’ll be more than happy to write a post for you ๐Ÿ™‚

See you my angels with my angels. Till then happy a happy weekend!

  1. so beautiful, and the angels are going to be soooooo lovely. i’ve been trying to decide how i want to do my tree, and i’m thinkin now maybe angel wings. see how inspiration and blog lala land work? a Japanese doll to angel wings. who knew?




    • So very very true. And its so inspiring to see how one thing leads to the other. Without the lala blog lullaby (read: posts) where would I be is what I wonder. I say Michele, after Renaissance, blogs are the next best thing that has happened to mankind. I would love to see your angel wings and your tree.


  2. I’m amazed! Your Japanese paper doll is stunning!! The detail is amazing.
    Please send the tutorial, if it isn’t too much trouble. Mouse silhouettes are about as talented as I get, but I’d love to see how you made her.
    Happy Halloween..
