dress up dolly kit ... ♥

my littlest little had a birthday party to go to last week
this is our favorite go-to gift for a little girl (or even an older girl)
both my girls have a lot of fun when they get out the scrap bin in my craft room 
and start dressing up these dolls (there is a boy doll and a poodle... and a kitty too :)

print out the paper dolls from here
so gracious of her to share with everyone! love that ... thank you :)
she already had the idea to put the dolls printed out in a little suitcase
with some supplies for gifting

we went to joanns and found this stack-able three-compartment tote
perfect for what we wanted to put in it

the three sections come apart and then snap back together
we put markers for coloring, scissors and glue in the top section

itty bitty yarn skeins (also from joanns) felt & ribbon scraps
and a couple little baggies filled with buttons & pompoms ♥

the bottom section had the dolls (which we cut down so they would fit)
and all the fabric remnants for making their clothes

my daughter made an "example dolly" to stick in there too 
so her buddy would know what to do :)

every-time they make one of these kits, they usually spend the next few days 
going back to the bin and making another batch of their own :)

summer is officially here ...
we're craftin - watchin tv - playing outside 
and roastin marshmallows over daddy's new fire pit :)
wish summer could stay forever. ♥
(the little dress tags can be found in my shop ... right here :)
