Do Not Disturb Dottie

Good Morning!  I have two posts for you today. First up is the anything but a card post for Catch the Bug.  One of Jodie’s most recent collections is Dottie.  Now, I happen to know “you like her, you really, really like her” since the freebie was downloaded a LOT! Hopefully, you’ve all checked out the rest of the collection and snagged her already. 

When I was trying to decide what to do for today’s project, I looked at the bath image and then at an empty ribbon spool and a light bulb went on. 

A do not disturb door hanger for the bathroom.  Now, I haven’t had a nice long soak in the tub in a very long time — I think I might have been pregnant with Ainsley the last time.  So I’m thinkin’ I’m due…

I added in “Do Not Disturb” before printing Dottie.  I colored her up, giving her a very fun pink tub.   To cover the ribbon spool, I picked out Basic Gray Sultry paper.  Since this was a wide ribbon spool, it was larger than my biggest circle Nestie.  In order to cover, I cut around the outside edge of that biggest Nestie to create the two circles I needed.  On the inside of the spool, I cut a strip of Melon Mambo and covered up the plain inside.  I cut Dottie out and added a Melon Mambo scalloped circle. Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen added in some glitz to the scallops and Stickles to her bubbles, with a Glitter Dome in her hand for the big bubble.  Finally, I added in brown satin May Arts ribbon to the inside to tie a big bow as a “handle.”  A stiffer ribbon, like grosgrain, probably would have worked better here.  So the next time you think of throwing out your empty ribbon spools, think again!

  1. Oh I “really, really like this!” And that image is perfect! Bean is at the age where she wants to potty all by herself, and she would LOVE a do not disturb door hanger. Thanks for the inspiration.
