Yes! That is a popcorn box!

This month our theme inspiration piece is all about nesting dolls! I have always thought they were really cute, but after using them for my inspiration this month I think I have found a new love affair! Shhhh...don't tell my DH! lol!
This is the image we were given to work with...
Don't you just love all the fun colors and shapes?! It certainly got my mind to working! The shape however was my biggest struggle. What could I alter? I knew I wanted to make my own version of a nesting doll, but I knew I did not want to go with the traditional shape. So, I decided to take a trip to Hobby Lobby and peruse the isles to look for ideas.
That is when I came across this...
Yes! That is a popcorn box! They were available in 2 sizes in the party favor isle! As soon as I saw them I knew it was just what I was looking for!
So from this popcorn box I created these...
A sweet little trio! Mommy and her 2 baby girls! I went to town decorating the popcorn boxes with the Melody Ross Artsy Urban line! These papers are perfect because of the fabulous linen/cloth-like look and feel they possess. Plus the colors are so warm and cheery!
Here is a close up of the Momma's pretty face...
and the front of her dress.
Supplies:

Patterned Paper: Artsy Urban/Blue Floral, Petit Floral, Postcard 1, Postcard 2 and the 8x8 Specialty Paper Pad
