It took me a week, but I finally completed the 16 pieces. The background squares are roughly 6 inches squared. I tried to keep the puff paint to a minimum. To create some of the effects, I used craft sticks, toothpicks, and even a mascara brush.
Pots & pans, from the traditional French & Appalachian versions
Wash the linens in the river, from Egypt
Weed the rice field, from Korea; Pick lentils out of the ashes, from Germany
I used an illustration from the book Glass Slipper, Gold Sandal: A Worldwide Cinderella by Paul Fleischman and Judy Paschkis for the pots and pans. I used Mel's photo for the linens. I used a modified clipart image for the rice field. I used Mel's photo for a guide on the lentils and ashes.
Crocodile, from the Philippines and Indonesia; Fairy Godmother, from France
Fish, from China; Birch tree, from Russia
I used Mel's photos as templates for the crocodile, fairy godmother, and fish. I used an illustration from the book Glass Slipper, Gold Sandal: A Worldwide Cinderella by Paul Fleischman and Judy Paschkis for the birch tree.
Diamond anklets, from India; Glass slipper, from France
Golden sandal, from the Middle East; Moccasin, from Native American stories
I used an illustration from the book Glass Slipper, Gold Sandal: A Worldwide Cinderella by Paul Fleischman and Judy Paschkis for the glass slipper. I used Mel's photo as a guide for the diamond anklet and designed my own version. I used Mel's photos as templates for the gold sandal and moccasin.
Pumpkin coach, from France; Walking, from many versions
Horse, from Finland; Breadfruit coach, from the Caribbean
I used a coloring page as a template for the pumpkin and Mel's photos for the road, horse, and breadfruit.
The girls really liked this activity. The ages at the event were slightly younger and they mostly wanted to pick the options they were familiar with, but we had fun. I think I might use this set again at my Fancy Nancy Party tomorrow.
Again another big Thank You to Melissa Depper for letting me borrow her idea.
Holy cow, Bridget, these look amazing! It was tricky enough when I made these with construction paper--and here you did such a great job with felt! Have fun with this set. I've been able to re-use mine really easily!
Thanks, Melissa! I was quite pleased with how they turned out. Thanks again for letting me borrow your idea.
