No Cricut Thursday #9: Paper Doll Play Time

Has anyone else bought this fun stack from DCWV?
I waited and waited to get it until it was on sale and now I am so happy I did. My daughter loves paper dolls and this stack not only has a set of 4 different dolls, complete with fun backgrounds to play in (multiple pages of each in case of ripping), but also fun scrapbook papers for me to use...maybe for photos of my kid playing with her new toy.
Anyhow I wanted the backdrop papers to be able to stand up so I did some quick work with 4 sheets of chipboard, leftover ribbon and some super sticky red tape.

I used my ATG gun and applied one backdrop set to the chipboard. Than making sure I had them lined up correctly I put strips of ribbon with the tacky tape attached and made the two pieces stick together. I made sure there was enough give so it could stand up, but not pull apart to much.  All that was left was putting on the background papers of a different doll onto the back side and cover the tape...

Super easy and it all folds up to put away very nice.  After I did this my daughter spent the rest of the afternoon engrossed in playing.  Simple and quick and wonderful. What a simple and wonderful thing!Happy Thursday!!
