How to make Kit’s Reporter Set

Our Kit received a surprise present for her birthday!  A replica of her Reporter Set!  It’s not an exact match, but our Kit loves it and it’s very special to her.  It took me a couple of trial runs to get the camera to where I was happy with it.  Now that I am done, I have to admit that I LOVE it!  I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did.  The best part is now I’m done and we have another special piece to add to our collection!

I want to give a BIG shout out to a few of my Facebook Doll Friends.  They took up close pictures of Kit’s Reporter Set so I could see details of the camera, film, etc.  That really helped me complete this project.

Also, the printables I made for this craft are not identical to Kit’s, but they are close enough to reflect hers.  For the newspaper, regular printer paper will be fine to use.  However, for the pictures and Kodak film box printables, be sure to load card stock.  You don’t want them to be flimsy!

    My sister has this set and it your craft is just like the real one! How crafty! I don’t have the supplies for the camera and pouch, but I think I’ll make the rest as a Christmas gift for some friends.

    My favorite part is how the stacked square buttons take the look of the accordion part of Kit’s camera! You are so creative!

      Isn’t that adorable?! I stood in the bead isle at Michael’s for what seemed like forever trying to decide between which bead to use!!!
