Santa …. two great images just in time for Christmas card and tag making. These vintage colouring book Santas would also make great embroidery patterns for tea towels to give as a hostess gift. If you quilt but don’t embroider you could applique him onto a towel as well…even a Christmas stocking. Done on a fabric postcard he could be sent as a Christmas greeting too.
Santa checking his list. At least he is laughing so he must like what he sees.
Santa telling us to shhhhh !!! …. I wonder if he just wants the elves to be quiet for two minutes or does he just not want us to make a peep so we don’t wake the kids
Meri is here to say ‘hello, won’t you play with me this Christmas?’. She is all set for whatever games you play, whether it be snug in her little housecoat and slippers or out in the snow with her snowsuit. Meri can help trim the tree or sit down for a snack of gingerbread men. She also has a best Christmas Day outfit to wear while opening her presents.
Merri would make a great stocking stuffer or be used as a quiet time activity for your child. There are earlier Christmas Paperdolls as well. They would all like to play so please feel free to download them.
I created these Christmas Papers because I wanted something different from eveything traditional. Snow flakes and ornaments are not on these pages, just the suggestion of snow flakes being picked up on the wind. Feel free to use them for your personal art.
These pieces were all made for the ArtForTheCreativeMind Yahoo group. The three wooden spools had a mind of their own and my muse just went with the flow. I had originally wanted all white and light blue and glittery spools, but they told me they wanted to look a bit like French vintage. So French vintage it was. I used large beads and small as well as cord and wire for the hangers, even a pipe cleaner. Some French vintage papers helped give the ‘French’ feel to them.
My advent calendar wreath was another piece that grew as I made it. I knew I wanted the Matryoshka dolls to be a part of it. First the pattern had to be drawn and I chose to create that in Photoshop Elements which made it easy to create the little faces. Christmas papers were used for the outfits. Finding the right size of prints became a difficult task as many of the paper’s designs were too large. I then glued them onto black card and created 25 different inspirational words instead of numbers for each December day until Christmas. These little dolls can be removed from the wreath to be used as tags at a later date.
At last, a new paper doll, this one just in time for Christmas. Two more ginger cookies to dress. Please welcome Cinnamon and Spice. They are all ready for the coming holiday. Enjoy.
Cinnamon is all set for Christmas Eve with her little green nightgown with it’s furry trim. She will be festive in her little red dress Christmas Day and after opening her presents she can go out and make snow angels in the snow wearing her bright red snowsuit.
Spice will wait for Santa in his green pajamas and be all dressed up in his new blue jeans and t-shirt on Christmas Day. Later he will go out and play in the snow, maybe he will make a snow fort. Spice will stay warm and cozy in his bright green snowsuit.
