I'd like to show you our handmade hotel.
It is made out of two old shoeboxes stuck together.
We cut out a door and a window on one side. This is the door
and the hotel's sign.
This is the reception area. Our doll Lavender is signing in.
Her cousin Lily will join her soon.
The reception desk is made from an old wooden box.
The wallpaper is some nice origami paper you may recognise
from Maryam's bookmark post.
The door you can see is made from thin foam.
The pencil she's holding is made from the end of
a toothpick I coloured.
After signing in Lavender and her cousin Lily are
unpacking and relaxing in their room.
The mini newspaper that Lily is reading can be
we managed to reduce the size before printing it out.
Here's a peep through the window.
The shelf is cardboard folded in half and stuck on
Lavender, unpacking her stuff.
The suitcase is made from cardboard, I stuck it
together with a strong glue. The handle is also cardboard
again, stuck with glue.
Both girls are enjoying the room and having a nice chat.
Please note, this is a 'girls only town' *hee hee*.
No males allowed!
Also, we don't usually buy dolls, but this time
we wanted to get small ones to fit inside our
town. Our mother managed to remove the eyes, to
make the image incomplete. We hope to make
abayas and scarves for them one day.
Hope you like it! Soon we'll show you
a boutique we've almost completed. If you like this hotel,
you'll really like the shop insha'Allah.
