Make an adorable, cut & dress-up, unisex doll, that stands on its own (and is sturdy enough to hold actual jewelry), using a pizza box.
Do you remember those dress up dolls we were cutting off of paper and had all sorts of cute outfits? They were pretty and elaborately designed but were not very sturdy and consequently, they didn’t last long. I made a much sturdier and larger version for The Cute – and didn’t cost a thing!
Read on for the tutorial, plus 6 ideas for learning activities using this cute dress up doll.

I like the intrigue of upcycling items and giving them a new life. The whole thing puts our brains to use. What can we make? How can we make it happen? What does this item want to be? I love a quirky result, something surprising coming from unrelated items. Even better if it also has a practical use.
I had the remnant of a Lazy Susan cabinet that came broken when we installed our new kitchen. I also have an inconspicuous slice of wall by our front door that needs something narrow (flat) and practical. Like a mail center!
