May Arts Design Team Round 2

It's here...the final round of the May Arts Design Team Call!!  I have created a multi-part project for my final submission.  Since it's rather long, you can find a complete supply list and tutorial with pictures here for easy download/printing. 

Here we go!  My May Arts Clementine Doll Bed:


I created a doll's bed (or teddy bear bed!) from paint sticks and a clementine (mandarin orange) crate then turned it into a fairy tale with the help of beautiful May Arts Ribbons.  The finished bed is perfect for dolls or teddy bears up to 11 1/2" long.

In the tutorial, you will find links to all the May Arts Ribbons  I used.

First up is the actual bed construction:

Every little doll needs a mattress for comfort,

and a soft pillow for her head,


a rug to play on,

 and a blanket to cuddle up in when nights are chilly.



Even the tiny teddy got a May Arts Elastic Ruffled Ribbon Tutu and bow of gorgeous May Arts Double Faced Satin.

May Arts Satin leaves and Crochet Velvet help with sweet dreams.


Look at those (brand New!) Mini Pom Poms on the pillow!  Aren't they just the cutest?  The link will take you to a Sneak Peek of all the colors. 


Thanks May Arts Ribbon!  You make creativity.....BEAUTIFUL!

Pin It!

This turned out so cute. I guess we'll all be saving clementine boxes next year.

You are so awesome!! Absolutely love it. How clever to use paint sticks. I'll have to show you the 18" doll bed I made for my girls. Not quite so exquisite but still really fun.
