One last bookmark doll, I promise! This one is unique in that all the paper on this card except the base is from scraps. The hair and head are leftovers from the other dolls I've made, but everything else is from a CTMH class I took last month. Unlike other workshops I've attended, Michelle doesn't give us precut pieces for our cards; she gives us uncut pieces of paper and a cutting diagram. There is always a lot left over, sometimes enough to duplicate all the cards we make at the workshop and then some. Anyway, I used the leftover CTMH paper because I knew that all the colors and papers would go together without even thinking about it.
Fast forward a month - I'm at this month's card class, and we are chatting about CTMH blog hops, and it's time for me to go, so I ask what I should do with my plastic drink cup (I was looking for a recycling bin), and Michelle tells me that I should use it on a card for the recycling challenge on the Heart 2 Heart blog.
So, I took it home and punched a butterfly out of it, and hit it briefly with my heat gun to curl it a little. The tan color of the solo cup goes nicely with the muted tones of the paper, I think. It was easy enough to add it to the card with a glue dot.
