Akhil's birthday gift.


     My younger son Akhil is turning fifteen today and I surprised him with this quilled miniature Harry potter.
I have lost count of the number of times Akhil has finished the entire series of Harry potter books. Abi and I try to get him to read other books and sometimes we succeed , but he always comes back to his Harry potter books. When I was looking for ideas for his birthday gift ,the idea suggested itself after years of picking up Harry potter books from just about everywhere.
    Recently he reminded me that it has been a while since I made dolls,I though making a doll for him will be a nice surprise for him.
     Abi is not happy with the cap , he thinks it looks like an elf's . I wrapped the broom around a tooth pick and the wand around a wire. Other than that the doll is completely made from paper.
   
    Linking this doll to - Itsy Bitsy make it dimensional challenge.

    Thanks for stopping by , Have a creative day.
