It’s Day 3 of Papertrey Ink’s 9th Anniversary February Release. Today, there are new product introductions designed by Betsy Veldman. Dress Up Dolls are a fabulous new product collection perfect for interactive activities for kids or to use on projects, including cards. I’ve made dress up magnet dolls that Lauren LOVES! All new products will be available at Papertrey Ink on February 15 at 10 pm ET.
This is the the metal CD tin case all dressed up for a Valentine’s Day gift to Lauren (sort of…you’ll see why below)!
I used Primitive Stitched Hearts to die cut the flower from felt.
I dressed it up a bit with some Sweet Blush Swiss Dots satin ribbon.
The felt heart is embellished with a Be Mine sentiment from XOXO product collection.
Here are the Dress Up Dolls all in place ready for tiny hands to have creative fun times.
I added the Easter Bunny parts to interchange as well.
I chose to use colored pencils to color the paper because they look more “child-like.”
I even added a photo of Lauren’s head so she could add it to the dolls!
So much for waiting for Valentine’s Day! I had to see if she liked it! Well, she did. And when I went to take it away to get more photos she came back for it! Lauren is a few weeks shy of turning two years old, so this should give you an idea of how toddlers can enjoy this activity too.
Please note that there are tiny pieces in this collection. I watched her closely, but I would suggest not including some pieces for toddlers under the age of 3.
She’s known most of her body parts for a year now, but still enjoys identifying them. So, these magnet dolls are a great learning tool as well. She loved the shoes the best!

Here is a new episode to my card making in action series! I hope you enjoy watching a part of my process in making the Dress Up Dolls. These videos aren’t intended to be tutorials, but just a peek over my craft table while I create. I like to think of it as another way to showcase my projects in action in addition to the still photographs.
Thanks for visiting!
