I found some dowels and bun style armoire feet in the garage the other day. I decided to make kokeshi dolls out of them. Or, scroll dolls in this case.
That was so much fun, I decided to buy a few more dowels and feet and make more.
And then I had a crazy idea of what to do with my itty bitty paper scraps.
Incase you are wondering, scroll dolls are referred to as Sayonara dolls. They are scrolls – and are generally presented to a person as a goodbye gift – the doll gets passed around to friends/coworkers who sign it and offer sentimental phrases about how sorry they are to see you go… but they are also presented at special occasions such as weddings, graduations… you get the point. I think they are a more interesting alternative to a boring old American style card. Don’t you?
As for the peg dolls, I decided not to make scrolls out of them – for right now.
Now I am off to find my sense of humor, which seems to be hiding from me these days.
