DCGB Paper Doll

You will have found a card doll in the last issue of Plangon.  This is the competition for our themed Victorian Christmas party.  Please decorate it however you wish.  Paint,  collage, dress be creative and bring him/her to the Christmas party or mail back in time for December to Suzy (please contact her for postal address – email on back page of Plangon).

A project like this gives members a chance to participate without having to attend the party.  Maybe we will have our international members create an interesting doll as they rarely get to celebrate Christmas with us.  Initial it somewhere so we can identify the maker.  A prize for the most creative.

We will string up all the paper dolls to make a banner to display at the party and it will be kept for other meetings.  Our 65th anniversary is coming up and it can be a banner for that.
