First, open the pdf file with adobe reader. If you don’t have adobe reader, you can download it for free from www.adobe.com
Zoom the image into 375%
(you can drag the sheet with your mouse the get into the circle you want. I want the top left bug, so I drag into that circle)
My screen now looks like this
On photoshop, press ctrl+N (press ctrl and N at the same time)
A box will pop up, with the following..
widht: 1280 pixels
height: 800 pixels
(note: 1280×800 is my monitor resolution)
resolution: 72 pixels/inch
Now, you will need to change the resolution into 300.
So, you will have 300 pixels/ inch (and not 72 pixels/ inch)
After that, click ok
the box will disappear
Press ctrl+V (at the same time)
Now, you will have your circle (from adobe reader) on photoshop.
Click the “elliptical Marquee Tool” from top left tool, or you can simply press “M”
Change the “Style” from normal into “fixed size”, then set widht “1,313” in and height “1,313 in”
click the bug image, and drag the cirlce into the right place of the image,
you will see dot running white (indicating the 1,313” circle)
now, we’re going to copy this circle, press Ctrl+c
a bow will appear, with this..
widht: 393 pixels
height: 393 pixels
from the drop down menu, you can change the pixels with inches,
when you change it into inches, you will get this size
widht: 1,31 inches
height: 1,31 inches
we have a new blank document
you will have your circle on that document
now, we will save this one circle
from “file” menu (on top), choose “save as”, and from the dropdown menu, you can use the type of file you want.
If you want a transparent background, you can save as a “png” file
otherwise (with a white background), you can sace as a “jpg” file
Once you have this one circle (in one png or jpg file), you can import this one circle into microsoft word, or openoffice (or, you can also import it into photoshop), and then you can create a page with these circles on it (just copy paste this one cirlce over and over in a sheet/page)
Looks simple, but actually it’s kinda difficult to make. You will need to know how to twist & squash the paper (to do step 2)

o today I learn how to tie obi/sash One of the girl in my “chado” class (chado=the way of tea) is very kind to teach me how to do this. I will tell you later about my chado class. I’ve been in this class since last month. I have learned a little bit about japanese tea ceremony.
And today, I wear my yukata again (yukata= a simple version of kimono).
Click! (I’m the one with the yellow obi).
I love her obi because it has 2 colors (red & yellow). So when you have 2 colours, you can play around with your obi, and do several variations. The lenght of her obi is about 3 meters.
And the yellow one, is my obi. It is actually a “ready-to-wear” obi, means I don’t have to fold the obi (to make a shape of ribbon). I only need to attach it to the sash. Just that simple! That’s way I’m not so good at this thing (obi folding).
So these are the steps. It’s not so difficult actually.
Easy to make!! & you don’t have to buy expensive materials to make these dolls. You will only need scissor, glue (I use white PVAc), and some old postcards. I use old poscards, but you can also use other papers (from old publication, flyers, etc). So, prepare all those stuff.
You don’t really need patterns to make these dolls. You can directly cut the paper, compose the pieces, and then join all pieces with glue. Now, let’s start
Step 1: cut the paper (make body shape). Also make 2 rectangulars (these are for the sleeves).
Step 2: make a curve on each sleeve. And then, make the head (more like an oval).
Step 3: make hair shape. When you cut the hair, put first the oval head above the hair paper. So you know how big should the hair is.
Step 4: Now all pieces are completed. Time to join them together.
Step 5: glue each sleeve on the back side of the body. Then put glue on the upper side of the body, then you can mount the head on the body.
Step: mount the hair onto the head. Voila! Now you have collage kimono doll!
