How to make japanese washi doll (Temari Girl)

Let’s make washi doll!! Fun to do, and the doll looks pretty :) You can mount your doll onto a cardstock, and you’ll have a uniqe gift card!

Ok, let’s start!

You will need:
– washi paper (patterned). washi is japanese silkscreen paper
– mingei paper (plain washi)
– cardboard (white)
– crepe paper (black)
– fancy paper (red). this will be for the small ribbons

You can add flat cotton/foam to the following parts:
– body (cardboard)
– right & left sleeve (cardboard)
– ball (cardboard)
It will create a dimensional effect. Just mount the cotton/foam to the cardboard.

Temari is a japanese folk game. The word literally means ‘hand’ (te) and ‘ball’ (mari). It is an ancient japanese folk art dating back more than 500 years.
