This week at C.R.A.F.T.  we are looking for a Christmas Present theme. I have had the privilege of touring Russia twice. While there I fell in love with their Matryoshka – The Russian Nesting Doll. It’s hard to find a symbol of Russia more popular than the traditional Russian nesting doll. These decorated wooden dolls “with a secret” are also called matryoshka dolls or babushka dolls. They are recognized even in the countries a thousand miles away from Russia. They are used as gifts thus my thinking presents.

I used a digi set called Russian Dolls by All Dressed Up. I made three dolls that will literally fit into of each other with the final doll having a Christmas message. I printed the dolls out on my laser printer, then ran them through my Minc foiler machine. I coloured them with my Spectra noir markers.
