Since paper dolls can be delicate, I felt like I needed to make a folder to keep the dolls safe and give them a place to live. The outside of the folder is fairly plain and simple; but when you open the folder it turns into a ‘theater’ display for your paper dolls.
There are also two dolls – Thumbelina and a swallow. I really enjoyed how this bird turned out. I don’t draw detailed animals too often, so it was nice to do something a little different. For Thumbelina herself I went with a art nouveau faerie look. I must admit, I was a little inspired by the Thumbelina cartoon of olde.
Now that the Kickstarter rewards are winding down, I’m going to start pushing ahead with stock for my Etsy shop. I’ve got ideas for more paper dolls, art cards, postcards and kanzashi, which should give you an idea of what’s coming down the pipeline.
