What you get:
total 14 pages of paper doll accessories in two versions (color and mono)

At first, the idea of paper dolls might not sound all that exciting to you, but let me share a few things you can do with them that might help change your mind.
  • Tip: If you plan to reuse your doll, you may want to consider printing it on card stock to help your doll last longer.
More often than not, the dolls have a one time use in my house since I prefer to glue them, along with their clothing onto the page I am working on. For children who simply want to dress and redress their dolls, a sturdy paper can be used over and over where as a regular piece of paper is likely to be torn.
  • Tip: Cut out colorful pieces from a magazine to create clothing, accessories, background images, or my favorite - fairy wings!
Yes, one of my favorite things to do with Paper Dolls is to give them fairy wings! I also like to decorate them collage style with different textures and designs.
  • Tip: Make puppets by gluing your dolls onto fun shaped pieces of thin cardboard (eg: cereal box) and tape on Popsicle sticks or straws to use as a handle.
We all know that Children love to play make believe. Help them create a series of puppets and put on a puppet show for the family!
  • Tip: Create personalized cards or story books with your dolls
Sure, you can simply cut people out of magazines and use them in the same manor, but children will appreciate being able to color their dolls just the way they like them. Plus, I find that many of the people photographed in magazines are less than ideal for this use due to their position or objects being in the way.

After you purchase, you will be emailed a link which allows you to immediately download your printables. The Printable Paper Doll set is 67.3mb so depending on your connection it may take a few minutes.

The set comes with the doll pictured above along with many pieces of clothing and accessories. (7 black & white pages & 7 duplicate colored pages) I do wish that it came with more than doll model, a family of dolls would have been nice but for only $6.95 I still think this set is a good buy as it can promote hours of creativity!
