Make It Monday! A Lea Clark Inspired Photo Album

Here at Daydream Doll Boutique we are so excited about the new girl of the year doll from American Girl Lea Clark! Lea loves to take photos of her experiences in Brazil and we thought it would be fun to make a doll sized photo album for our dolls. You can print off small google images for Brazilian animals or you use stickers or draw your own pictures to put in side.

To make your own you will need:
-Small party sized note books (3 by 4 inches)
-Fun Foam in any color
-4 hair elastics (I picked Lea themed colors such as orange, green, pink and yellow)
-Buttons or charms
-Scrapbook paper
-Pen or Pencils
-Glue Gun and Glue Stick
Step 1- Gather all your supplies and plug in your glue gun. Trace your book on a piece of fun foam and cut it out, repeat and cut out two pieces.
Step 2- Add two lines of glue on the front of your note book and cover with the fun foam. Turn the book over and repeat on the other side.
Step 3- Open your book to the center and slide three elastics into place, they should fit and stay in place naturally, if the don't you can glue them into place.

Step 4- Cut one elastic open and use it to tie all three together at the top right corner of your album as shown in the photo above.
Step 5- Add a button embellishment or charm at the place of the knot

Step 6- Add a line of glue and then press in a piece of colorful scrapbook paper into the center of your album cover. Add the word photos or vacation or what ever you would like to the front! Stickers look great too!
I hope you enjoyed today's craft and we invite you to share your thoughts with us in the comment section below! 
I look forward to sharing more craft ideas with you again soon.

Make It Monday! Mini Doll Reindeer Antlers!

Karen here and today I got out the Mini dolls for a bit of holiday fun! I have 9 mini dolls and wanted to do something to help them get ready for the holidays. You can easily make your mini dolls Reindeer Antlers from one pipe cleaner!

To make your own you will need:
-Pipe Cleaners (1 for each of your dolls)
-Your Mini Doll

Step 1- Assemble your supplies and bend your pipe cleaner into the letter N. Cut at each bend.
Step 2- Use one of the pieces to form a circle and bend then ends together to keep it in place.
Step 3- Bend the other two pieces in half and cut.
Step 4- Attach one of the short pipe cleaners to the circle by bending one end around the circle.
Step 5- Bend another small piece of the cut pipe cleaner around the top end of the piece sticking up from the circle, this becomes one antler.
Step 6- Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the other antler.
Step 7- Repeat all the steps to make a pair of antlers for each of your mini dolls.

*Mini Doll Tip, holiday buttons for sewing and crafts make great doll sizes sugar cookies!
I look forward to sharing more doll play ideas with you again in the New Year. I hope you have a safe and happy holiday season!

Make It Monday! No Sew Holiday Cape Or Choir Costume

Karen here with today's Make It Monday Craft. My dollar store had the most amazing sparkle mini tree skirts that I knew would make the perfect holiday cape or choir costume with just a few easy snips! Today I want to show you how you can make your own for your dolls.
All you need to make your own is your doll, a pair of sharp scissors and a $2 mini tree skirt. My dollar store had these in so many colors the blue was stunning as well.

Step 1- Undo the plastic ties from the package and open your tree skirt.
Step 2- Undo the ribbon ties and place the tree skirt around your dolls neck.
Step 3- Re tie the ribbons then lay your doll down.
Step 4- Fold the skirt down around your dolls shoulders and use your fingers to measure a two inch piece of the skirt down from the shoulder and carefully cut a slit on each side for your dolls arm.
 Step 5- Slide your dolls hands through the slits and your cape or choir robe is ready. I paired my cape with a holiday dress that had a ruffle collar, you could just use a piece of dollar store lace and tie it in to place as well.

I hope you enjoyed this weeks Make It Monday craft and I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

It's Make It Monday! Set The Table For Thanksgiving Tea

The days are growing shorter as the dark comes earlier it seems each night. By the time I finished my craft for photos the sun had long since set!  For today's Make It Monday craft I am sharing with you an easy way to add a little glam to your dolly tea table using items you may have at home.

Setting a nice table makes all the difference when you are entertaining with friends and dollies are no exception.  To share today I am showing you how to use fun foam, felt, ribbon, left over artificial flower leaves and a sharpie to create a festive fall themed or Thanksgiving themed tea for yourself and your dolls.

To make your own you will need:
-Light brown, tan, or another fall colored sheet of fun foam
-Brown Felt
-A Ruler or measuring tape
-A Gold or Copper Colored Sharpie Marker
-1/4 thick Ribbon

Step 1- Remove the leaves from a stem of an artificial flower, pull off the small plastic part that held the leaves into place and then trim apart the leaves.
Step 2- Use a Sharpie Marker to write your dolls name on the leaf. Repeat for as many dolls that you have attending the party.

Step 3- To create each napkin I measured and cut a 4 inch by 4 inch square out of felt. Then I placed the felt over my finger to form the napkin shape. Next I wrapped ribbon around the center and tied it into place.
Step 4- Cut out place mats for your dolls using fun foam. I cut 3 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inch rectangles but you can make yours larger if your table has space.

Now you are ready to set the table for your dolls tea party! I used items I had from my own mini tea set collection to set this table and I am thrilled with how it turned out and so was my doll!
Thank you for joining me for today's Make It Monday Craft! I look forward to sharing more dolly craft ideas with you soon.~ Karen Owen aka Karen Mom of Three
