The Wizard of Oz...

Take a look at how
this set finished!
We finished ours a little differently.
I'm really into perforated paper right now.
We decided that these would be fun stitched on paper and mounted to wooden plaques with a border of green glitter paper.
They stand nicely and can be lined up anyway you want to display them.
Kind of like grown up paper dolls!
The patterns are by 
Brooke's Books
and each cost is $6.00
Stitched in DMC with metallic sprinkled throughout.
We made a couple of changes
(the helmet in the witches hand and Dorothy's shoes)
So Cute!
