It's a bit odd, but Merida related products are not available in our local stores.
Fortunately the Barbie Merida arrived last week by a special delivery from Graz, Austria ajust in time for this very special birthday.
To make her even more surprised with the gift, we have enclosed a handmade Merida card.
And here's a tutorial!
emerald green fabric (or paper, as long as it's in the right color)
crayons or markers for drawing a face (or some photos of Merida's face, if you are not skilled in drawing faces)
mesh bag (the one in which you buy fruits or vegetables)
glue (we used UHU Flex clean )
chalk (not on the picture, but useful for drawing the sketch of a dress before cutting)
First draw / paste the face. Then cut the label from a red mesh bag and roll the hair into the desired shape (as larger, the better), and paste it on cardboard. Use some chalk to draw an outline of a dress on the fabric then cut it and paste on cardboard. If you are skilled with drawing, you can add arms, legs and a bow and arrow.
And that's it! This greeting card was created in less than 10 minutes!
