RIBBON LACE LADIES
GINGER LANDON SIEGEL ~ NEW YORK

Traditional paper dolls became popular in Europe in the mid-18thcentury. Their popularity gave birth to a new craft idea of dressing the paper dolls with ribbons, laces, trim, fabric, beads and more. This new craft became known as Ribbon Paper Dolls. Kits for this craft consisted merely of a cardstock doll and instructions on how to apply assorted bits and pieces. In this class you will choose 2 paper ladies to dress from the ones shown here. You will shape the paper figures and learn techniques to manipulate the laces, trims, feathers and more to dress and create your "ribbon dolls". Each lady will then be placed in a frame for display. Students will also receive a 5" tall artists easel to be used for display on a shelf or in a miniature scene. Completion of one dressed lady is expected.

Ginger accepts paypal, MO, credit card or your check. Mail the latter to 360 E 72nd St, B1010, New York, NY 10021
