So you’ve been buying up all those ridiculously adorable Non Paper Dolls for your kiddos (or yourself 😉 I won’t judge!) and you need an quick and inexpensive storage solution that doubles as a felt play mat – I’ve got the easiest solution for you – paper doll storage! This paper doll storage also doubles as a felt board or flannel board.
I found this plastic project case at my local Michaels craft store – it is meant for storing scrapbooking supplies, so it is in their paper crafting section (close up of the label below). If you don’t have a craft store nearby or just prefer to shop on Amazon, they have a similar one here: Slim Scrapbook Case
The best part of this case is that it is about 1.5 inches thick and has a carrying handle. Takes up next to no space and easy to grab for fun on the run!
The price is the same at both – about $10, but at Michaels you can always use that 40% coupon!
You will also need some felt – if you go with the smaller 8×11 case like I did, two felt sheets will suffice – if you go with the larger 12×12 case, you’ll need approximately 1/3 of a yard of felt. Also grab some plastic-safe glue – I love silicone glue or a heavy duty spray adhesive.
The project couldn’t be simpler – trim or cut the felt to fit on the inside of the case, glue down with your glue or spray adhesive and allow to dry. When dry, your felt dolls and accessories will stick to the felt for easy playing, and when you’re done playing, just close up the case and everything will be stored neatly inside!
Viola! Instant play on the go- great for grabbing on the way to a doctors appointment, a long trip in the car or airplane, or even when you’re visiting a friend’s house who may not have many toys for your kids to play with!
