Homeward Bound Betty Paper Doll

For sometime now I've loved this etsy shop; Illustrated Ink! I saw this paper doll mermaid on there and really needed to have it! Paper dolls are right there with friendship bracelets when it comes to childhood nostalgia! Though my paper dolls weren't half naked mermaids with tattoos, but now they are!!
So I cut out all the pieces, used a small piece of card board, and a thumb tack to punch little holes into the pieces. I used the little brads that were provided and put all the pieces together!
Tada! I like it so much!
Go check out her blog great blog! She's having a giveaway right now, so hurry!
And don't forget here at Strumpet's Crumpets it's giveaway week! Signup below for the Sew Cute Giveaway and check back later today for the next giveaway!
