Make Your Own Backgrounds With Foam Core

Jen at is on a roll! The doll play cuteness and creativity is just amazing. The other day she decided to make a ballet studio back drop for her daughter’s dolls using foam core sheets and some basic supplies she got at the hardware studio. 

Needless to say it turned out ADORABLE!! I just love all the little details.

And now she has taken it one step further with a classroom…

I love the use of the self stick corkboard and the scrapbooking paper map! So incredibly cute!

There are more photos and how to instructions at her site – art. Go check it out!
