My Doll Christmas Gifts! | Video

First off, I am so so sorry I am so far behind on this! I am literally like the last person on Earth to do a Christmas haul video. Like I said on my other blog, I've been so caught up in life, I haven't found the time to slow down! I thought that after the holiday season I would be all back to normal...apparently not. 

Anyways, today I finally have my doll Christmas gifts video for you guy! I've learned that I am NOT good at video editing, and even though this took ages, I still don't like it much, so please bear with me. I'm still learning. The music is a tad too loud and you can't hear what I'm saying in some parts, but I still hope it's alright.

Hope you enjoy!


So it was satisfactory. :)
Have a lovely week!

Meet Clara Gabrielle! + Review on TM 59

Hello everybody! I hope you had a lovely holiday. I sure did! I received Truly Me 59, so I thought I would do a review of her. 

Here is my video!

Like I said, I named her Clara Gabrielle after Clara Oswald from Doctor Who and Gabrielle Aplin, a singer. She is so gorgeous and I would really recommend her!
 I don't have many photos taken of her yet, as the weather has been really rainy and gross, but here are two that I took on Christmas day.



Hope you enjoy the rest of the festive season!

12 DoC Day Ten- Masquerade Masks

Hello, and welcome to day 10! Can you believe this has gone by so fast? Anyways, today I will be showing you how to make these simple masks that are perfect for the masquerade ball tomorrow! They are super customizable and easy to make, so you can make a lot in a short time.

You will need:
-Cardstock paper
*Scissors (as well as sewing scissors that are small for the eye holes)
*Tape
*Sting, yarn, ribbon, etc.
*A doll handy
*Pencil
*Glitter, lace, ribbon, stickers, anything you want to decorate it with.

1) I first made a small rectangle out of paper and put it over my doll's face, roughly sketching where the eyes are.

2) I then used it to trace onto pretty paper, and I trimmed it to my liking.
3) I measured the eyes again and cut out small circles with my small sewing scissors.
4) I decorated with a sticker.

I also made the eye hole edges look a little neater by outlining them in Sharpie.

5) Use the mask you just made to make as many more as you like. You just have to trace, cut, and decorate! The first one is definitely more harder than the ones that follow.

To decorate this one, I used a makeup sponge to press on some gold ink, but you can't really tell in this photo.

For this one I just added some lace and a bow on one side.
There are so many different possibilities!

6) When you're finished with decorating, cut out two pieces of string, ribbon, yarn, etc. and tape them to each side of the mask.

Try it on your doll, and you are done!

Do you have masks for the ball yet?

12 DoC Day Eight- Homemade Christmas Cracker Hats

Hello! Today I will showing you are very simple craft- a Christmas cracker hat. Christmas crackers are more of a UK thing and it's like a cardboard tube that you pull apart at Christmas and there is a prize inside! A common prize is a Christmas cracker hat, or crown and that's what I'll be showing you how to make today.

You will need:
*Tissue paper
*Tape
*Scissors

1) Cut out a long, thin-ish piece of tissue paper and make sure it fits around your dolls head.
2) Trim if needed. 
3) Cut zig-zags at the top of the crown. They don't have to be perfect!

4) Wrap around your doll's head and seal with tape.

And you're done!




I think this is a great craft to do at a Christmas party!
Hope you enjoyed. :)

12 DoC Day Seven- DIY Gingerbread Cookies!

Hello all! Today I will be showing you a very easy tutorial for gingerbread cookies! These really don't take any time at all, and you can easily decorate with anything you may have.

You will need:
*Craft foam (preferably light brown if you want real gingerbread)
*Scissors
*Pencil
*Puffy paint
*Decorations such as glitter, beads, gems, etc. Get creative!

1) Draw a shape of a gingerbread man/woman, or you can print out a picture to use as a template.

If you want a regular cookie, use a quarter or bottle cap trace on the foam.

2) Cut it out and decorate it! For the gingerbread man, I used white puffy paint.

For this one I spread puffy paint around the edges and sprinkled some glitter on, shaking off the excess.
TIP: If you want to play with these, I recommend putting a layer of Mod Podge or clear school glue over it once it dries, especially if you add glitter.

Let dry and you are done!









Enjoy!
Claire
