Synopsis

Synopsis

Join the creator of The Black Apple, Emily Martin, on a trip through her magical world of paper dolls, imaginary places, and clever craft projects.

 

Inside this book you’ll find 21 sweet, mysterious characters with clothes and accessories all their own—from a busy beekeeper’s daughter to a bird-loving librarian. You’ll also find 16 dolls ready to be designed and brought to life by you! Emily will show you how to draw, paint, and personalize your way to a little paper replica of anyone you’d like.

 

With basic art supplies and the instructions in the book, you’ll also learn to:

 



   • Make a custom wedding invitation or holiday card
   • Color, cut, paste, and frame a unique family portrait
   • Design your own paper clothes, shoes, glasses, and the like
   • Cut and fold an armoire for doll-sized clothes
   • Build a paper theater using one of the TK illustrated backdrops
   • Direct a stop-motion film with jointed paper doll actors
   • And so much more!

 

So sharpen your scissors and get ready for a unique and wonderful adventure.
