Mixed Media Inspiration: Sassy Girls Triangle Dolls

sassy gals feature

I’m always trying to think up a new twist on an inspirational idea.  Since my customer is usually a tourist (coming to our resort community here in Oregon) I like to keep my costs and prices low.  If the price is right the tourists buy!

These little “Sassy Girls” are super simple to make.  Start with a Christmas Tree shaped triangle of cardstock and cover it with scrapbook paper using hot glue on the back.  Next use some fabric trim to decorate near the bottom.

Notice the top of the triangle from the back…I left a wad of paper at the top to attach the head.  Make a loop of 20 gauge wire and attach on the back for a hanger.

This is a closeup how the scrapbook paper goes off the end of the Christmas tree shape to be a sturdy tab for the clip art face.  FYI: I got the faces on Etsy by searching for Retro Housewife Faces.

The finishing touch:  A pretty paper flower at her neck.

These sassy girls are the perfect size to tuck in a greeting card!

Since I posted this, I have been contacted by folks who want to make these so I made a kit available in my Etsy Store!   Click on this image to go to my shop:
