We're Making Shaker Dolls & Tags

My sisters and I got together last weekend to celebrate some bdays and of course we always want to do a craft project. So this time, we made shaker dolls and tags. These are the finished projects.
We used the Tim Holtz vintage photos for those tags on the top row and for the dolls, I water colored the faces and my sisters added the bodies. They all turned out so adorable!

These are my sisters, so focused on creating. We're so fortunate to all live near each other and enjoy doing many of the same activities - crafting being one of them.
Prior to crafting, we spent several hours cooking our favorite dishes for each other.
We had a delicious lunch and spent quality time hanging out together sharing tips and tricks on cooking.

For my thank you notes, I wanted to keep with the theme and made shaker thank you cards. I started by making these tags.
I found that adorable doll image from an old doll magazine. I scanned it and reduced it to size. I added my signature metro tissue paper for the bodice.

I painted some blank white card with acrylic paint, making abstract marks.
I attached the shaker tags with washi tape and that was it, a shaker tag thank you card.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

  1. Connie - Thank you for hosting a wonderful birthday celebration. We all had so much fun cooking & crafting together. Also, thank you for the generous use of your supplies. I love all the dolls and even went out and bought a fuse tool to make my own shaker dolls. I can't wait!
