Last year, before my friend Dorothy moved, she gave me a couple sheets of one of her Dinky Doodles. I’m not sure if they’re laser or ink jet copies, but I absolutely love them! I put them away and forgot about them until I was going through the paper piles in my studio closet this past week.
I decided it was time for me to do something with these doodles that Dorothy gave me. The papers were light weight copy paper, so I decided folded little paper boxes would look great out of these papers.
I folded the tops of the boxes out of Dorothy’s paper and made the bottoms of the boxes out of colorful coordinating papers.
Dorothy paints what she calls Dinky Doodles on papers. It’s fun and easy for anyone to do. Then she copies her doodles. This would be a perfect project to do with children. It would work well with crayons or watercolors or markers.
