Every doll Diner serves the traditional fried foods of the 1950s. These include paper trays of onion rings and french fries. Below you can see that I cut our doll’s paper trays from recycled egg cartons.

fried, single servings of popular, Diner fast foods served in the 1950s.
After cutting out the egg carton parts, I then painted the interiors with white acrylic paints and decoupaged the exteriors with a printed scrapbook paper. The onion rings and French fries are shaped from Sculpey, painted with acrylics and glued inside the paper containers. Then I sealed the fauve fried foods with Mod Podge and sprinkled these with transparent glitter to make them look salty.
