    Barbie Dolls

    Barbie dolls may not be dollhouse miniatures but I did such a good job restoring them.....recreating them.....I was hoping somebody in here might appreciate the work I did. No worries though, just like all my albums that no one sees, I would honestly be so surprised if somebody stumbled upon my gallery.....if anyone ever does I hope you enjoy my albums! :o)

    Paper Toys Closer Look

    I really enjoy working with paper..I discovered paper models online...there are tons of websites where you can download paper models of just about anything you can think of....I made all these models in their normal size and it dawned on me that I should be able to scale any of them down to whatever size. Most of what I make is a replica of something I have in normal size...I take measurements and then convert those measurements to true 12th scale using a formula I found online...I use Xnview to print out the pages cuz it has the best scaling options... Sorry this reply took so long....

    Paper Toys Closer Look

    My coordination is basic, all ya need is a basic understanding of working with paper, and for me, wearing 2 pair of 98 cent store reading glasses on my face at the same time and a really good light. ;o)

    5 years later..........lol....most of the printable stuff you find online to download come in low resolution compressed files to reduce the size of the file cuz usually if the size of the file is over 1mb it won't be allowed to upload.... When I first discovered mini printables online I was always disappointed with the print out...but I love working with paper and I wanted my stuff to look as good as possible in my dollhouses ...so although I didn't want to ...I had to learn about digital photography and resolutions, dpi, and all that stuff so I could fix all the downloaded printables I h

    Hey guys.....I never thought anyone would bother viewing my pics much less leave a comment so I never bothered to look if anyone ever had. I know its been like 2 years and I am sorry. But better late then never :o) I just wanted to say thank you for your nice comments they mean alot to me. I'm the only person I know that has an interest in dollhouses and miniatures so I have no one in real life to show my little creations to....so having this community to share with means so much to me....I thank you so much for your nice comments!

    Making tiny replicas of my real size things is what miniatures are about for me....Since I make normal sized paper models I have to make tiny ones. You can find free to download printable patterns for just about anything you can think of, just size it down and print it out and then cut and clue the pieces together....of course the smaller the model the more difficult it well be to make, but I love the challenge.....but for me miniature printables are the only way to go. I have several pics of stuff Ive made out of paper in this album. Thanks for nice comments!

Anyway....thanks for looking !!

    Barbie Dolls

    For some reason people keep giving me trashed Barbie dolls and other types of dolls they run across while dumpster diving or randomly finding them. They are always dirty, naked and with horribly abused hair. I'm not into dolls at all....but I do love restoring beat up things so I've added this to my list of hobbies. I have about 50 dolls so far, so I'm just getting started.....
  12. It could be a custom made house made by a dad that never got decorated by the mom....just a thought, did you try asking the people that are selling it???

    Cool! I created the graphics and everything for this kit box......I made a custom dollhouse and named it The Nelson....so the box is of my actual dollhouse......I love making those boxes.........I have another box of one of my other dollhouses I made too.

    Mini Paper Printables

    Download and print, use card stock for most things that need to be sturdy...make sure your hands are clean, score all the folding edges before cutting the pattern out, use a ruler to keep lines straight, and scissors with good sharp pointed tips.....tacky glue works best. After its put together spray it with a clear coat or paint a coat of clear polyurethane (water based) all over it. Most of these I made myself using Windows Paint and images I found online....Some are made by other people like myself that just want to share with people......so feel free to download and do whatever
