Hi! Today I have a fun craft for you. Last week, I showed you how to make some easy nail files for your doll. And I have a few more beauty items to show you, but before we make any more of those, let's make a caddy organizer for your doll to put all of her cute little beauty items or other things in!
You will need:
- a small cup or any circle to trace
- craft foam in any color you want
- hot glue and glue gun
- two small beads
- an old flexible plastic bracelet or even a thin strip of craft foam (for your handle)
- mirror paper
- decorations of your choice like jewel on a roll
- and a tiny rubber band in a matching color.
First, trace a circle on to your craft foam. Then trace another one beside it, just about an inch over.
Now connect the two by drawing lines, making an oblong shape.
Now cut it out.
You need two of them. So once you cut the first one out, trace around it to cut out the second one exactly the same.
If you want it to have a mirror, trace and cut your craft foam oval on to some mirror paper and cut out. This needs to be the same size or slightly smaller than your craft foam piece above.
Now cut two long strips about 3/4" tall and long enough to go all the way around your oval.
Now glue your strip around your ovals. Glue all the way around.
And it will look like this! Do the same thing for both of your ovals.
Now cut little strips to make dividers inside your caddy, as many as you want.
So you will have one with divided areas, and one without for your lid.
Now poke two small holes in your lid with a pencil.
This is where you are going to put your handle in.
You could just glue a strip of craft foam for the handle, but I thought this was cute and I had this old bracelet.
Here is the handle. I just hot glued it underneath.
Next, glue your mirror into the lid so your doll can see herself when she opens it up.
Now cut a small rectangle of foam, about 1" x 1/2", but this doesn't have to be exact and you can trim it if you need to.
This will be the hinge, so just glue it to the back like this.
Now it opens!
Finish with whatever decorations you want. I glued two beads on the front for the latch.
And to cover the glue on top, my mom had some of this jewel on a roll, and it matched perfectly!
The tiny rubberband is to hold it closed. Just loop it around the two buttons.
That's it! Here is your doll caddy!
I hope you liked today's craft!
If you are wondering where my doll's gorgeous dress came from, it came from 18 Boutique!
