    Wow, I love that! And no, I never saw those. A new Mail Art Swap idea! Combination of Kokeshi doll and Moley, if you draw art images on the scroll part. That is pretty cool!

    I guess I’m thinking of a rotational Swap. I’m going to see if Pinterest has any examples.

    Decide that scroll is x inches long...each person arts up x amount of inches....starter decides if a special theme..and creates doll base and outside cover. It could ship in same padded envelope as a moley. Oh yeah,. Go ahead and sign me up!

    Boy, this has really got me going! I think it’s a fascinating idea (but I feel no monopoly on hosting!). I wonder if the scroll should be left unattached and left to the last person to do, just might be easier to work on, and save on excess handling. What do you think? Would the whole back of the scroll be decorated by the originator, to become the “cover” when attached and rolled up? And as much as I love kokeshis, the standard peg doll base that everyone uses could be any kind of character, maybe specific to the art they want done on the scroll.

    A agree ...scroll unattached...doll can be any character...the scroll kokeshi I saw had a separate wrapper..if arted scroll becomes the wrapper..you need to treat it after as art could bleed through.
