Wow! Today we not only have the cutest Cat Book with Paper Dolls you will ever see (by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper) but a related FLASH SALE, and a FREE Gift Kit, too!
First (and this has been needed for a long time): A Cats & Kittens Collage Sheets Section! There have been some collage sheets begging (in the most dignified, cat-like way) to be brought together in one group. (Plus there are 2 new cat paper doll collage sheets being announced today!) And so much easier to put them ON SALE when they’re in one place!
ALL Cats & Kittens Collage Sheets are On Sale at 50% off! (So the new collage sheets are also on sale at 50% off!) Examples shown here are the 3 Little Kittens ATCs and Victorian Kittens Collage Sheets.
The sale ends Saturday night, February 18th at midnight PST! See ‘em all! Over 20 options!
What? A new FREE Gift Kit! With all the cat goings-on today, it seems time for a Cute Kitties Charms & Buttons FREE Gift Kit.
The set includes 1 each of all of these cute kitties:
- Bronze Lucky Cat Charms
- Cute Bronze Cat Charms
- Big Eye Anime Cat Buttons
- Black Cat with Stripes Buttons
- Painted Cat Head Buttons
- Tiny Cat Head with Bow Buttons
These mini kits are FREE for ALL orders, now through SATURDAY NIGHT, February 18, 2017!
I LOVE this tiny little book with envelope pages that Shannon has made! (See below for a wide photo showing how the pages fold out for a background for the paper dolls.) She doesn’t even take credit for making the book itself in her blog post, but she emailed me: The cover is heavy weight cardboard. I just covered it with paper from the Spell Book Box Covers Collage Sheet and sanded it, inked it. stuck an accordion fold on the spine and glued in the envies.
Here’s a teaser (and some witty prose) from her post:
Paper toys delight me like nothing else. Airplanes, pop-ups, the “cootie catcher” every kid in grade school folded and played with, jumping jacks, and paper dolls…I love all of that. When I saw the new Wain Cat Paper Doll collage sheet, I knew I had to get my paws on them! The sheet I used features Cinderella, Aladdin, the Princess, and the Magician, and Robin Hood, but there is also More Wain Cat Paper Dolls with Beauty and the Beast, Little Red Riding Hood, and Dick Whittington. Louis Wain’s illustrations of anthropomorphic cats are fun all by themselves, but then to have the added pleasure of dressing and accessorizing these big-eyed kitties? Well, that’s the cat’s pajamas!
Inside the book are three envelopes, one for each story, and in the back are two removable backgrounds that can be unfolded. The backgrounds are also reversible for maximum playability. Here is the middle envelope opened up with Aladdin and the Princess ready to entertain. The tuxedo kitty on the front is attached with a brad so her head can be swiveled inside the book’s cover.
Shannon is so clever, like attaching the kitty head so it can swivel out of the way, inside the front cover. And I thought she had repurposed some old book covers, but she made the little book inself, too.
AND she provides a tutorial so you can make envelope pages to fit the paper dolls!
