Everyday Paper Dolls Is Out Of This World

This little martian ROCKS! He was cut out from the new Cricut Everyday Paper Dolls (cut at 4"). I used a black marker to define ears, eyes, mouth, etc. And again, printing the wording out on my printer with "Girlz are Weird" font. I used a rubber stamp from Stampin Up's Stars and Swirls stamp set in three coordinating colors and added decorative flowers and brads. Finally I added a little pink star clip and glued everything down. I used some dimensionals on the wording to make it "pop out"... cute pun I thought! LOL

This cartridge is everything and a bag of chips! And this little dude (the martian) was worth the price of admission! How seriously cute is he? I mean, wouldn't this little guy look so cute painted on a little boy's bedroom wall?!? It would be so super easy to do. Cut this little guy out in vinyl and then stick the vinyl on a wall as a stencil or template. Use a little bit of paintable caulk (from your local hardware store) on the tip of your finger to go around the interior edges of your vinyl martian stencil and then paint a thin even coat of your favorite paint... you could even sponge paint... that would give it a little texture. Then remove the vinyl stencil and you're done! Someone REALLY needs to try this and then send me the pix... cuz I bet it would be SUPER CUTE!!!

For more great ideas, and to preview the NEW Provo Craft Gypsy, go to and tell them FitterTwit sent you! ;)
