Kimonos with Kids

Save your scraps of pretty patterned paper (or create some of your own decorative papers) to make these little dolls. I used scrapbooking paper, origami paper, and some that I created by stamping or simple brushwork. I made these with groups of pre-schoolers who are studying about Japanese culture. They seem to work best with patterns that almost clash.

 

I'm starting a newsletter with DIY templates, news from my Etsy shop, and step-by-step photos of some of the techniques for my artwork and illustrations. The first newsletter in early May will include the kimono doll template. Sign-ups on the right-hand side of the blog.
