Flower Angels

Frozen Charlotte and China dolls have always mystified me. When I saw the Calamity Jane Roses Glitter Cardstock, I just had to make my own version of a cage doll. I love the Santos cage dolls on Pinterest and decided to create a cage china head doll.



The body of the doll was made from Calamity Jane Roses Glitter Cardstock and the face was from a collage sheet of china doll heads. The cage that supports the doll was made from the Silver Roses Glitter Cardstock.



Once the doll was assembled, except for her arms which went on last, I cut her corset from Glitter Leaf Specialty Paper.



I laced the corset together with some lavender ribbon trim, added some feathers and dew drops in her hair to match her corset and glued her to the base.



Finally, I decided she was a flower angel and gave her some wings made from Roses Vellum Cardstock. Her skirt is lace and she's holding the perfect rose made from Wedding Cut-Outs Cardstock and dew drops.



But I couldn't just stop there, my flower angel needed a few friends. The second flower angel is a Frozen Charlotte doll. After giving her some vellum wings, I placed her on the floor of the cage and surrounded her with paper rose buds made from Admiral Daisy Glitter Linen, Spring Flowers Glitter and Daisy Stripe Blue Cardstock.



The littlest Frozen Charlotte doll became a brooch necklace. I used the Calamity Jane Roses Glitter Cardstock again for the base of the brooch. Her little wings and mini rose buds were made from Wedding Cut-Outs Cardstock.



Here is the finished trio.
