how to make tiny brads and tiny fave figure paperdoll of your scraps
I'm a big fan of the fruit drinks of Zonnatura , because they have on them the drawings of Kikker (=frog) and his friends, of the dutch artist Max Velthuijs
And i always saving the boxes because of the drawings.;-D
and because of my cleaning up of materials i thought i will make of the pig a paperdoll.
I think you can do this for sure with other figures of brands as well.
so that's why i thought i will make a tute of my piggydoll;-D I've you want to make a piggy then you can print my piggy out on paper and glue that on cardboard and follow my tute.

there are a lot steps but that's only for trying to show you what you must do, so don't get to be scarry.LOL

hope you like it and thank 's for hopping by , hope you have a much crafting fun as well;-D
