For those of you who have asked for Belle to be added to LD's Happily Ever After princesses, did you know that you can make Belle by combining Jasmine and Tiana?
Lettering Delights recently posted a video tutorial that shows how to make a princess that looks like Belle. I followed the tutorial and ended up with these layers:
The extra yellow body layer was not made from that tutorial. Rather, I added that for the shoes layer. I had cut out Belle's shoes from LD's tutorial and found that they were a bit small and challenging to glue down in place. By welding the black body layer to the lower half of the base (brown) layer, I managed to get shoes with that yellow body.
Using the same idea, I managed to get Belle's back by combining Jasmine and Tiana's backs. Making the back was a little tricky because I also wanted it to align it with the front. This is so that I can use the fronts and backs for making things like cupcake toppers and magnetic bookmarks without having Belle looking like she had a crooked back.
In their tutorial, LD used Make-the-Cut (MTC) to make Belle. Even though you can also use the Silhouette Studio (Designer Ed) program, in my opinion, it is easier to make Belle by using MTC because of the latter's Layers feature.
