Paper Dolls Printables

PRETEND PLAY | CREATIVITY





Oh, I had too much fun drawing these little paper dolls and their little wardrobes too. And I'm not ashamed to say that playing with them has been as much fun as making them.

First I printed the dolls and glued them onto an old file folder to reinforce them. Printing them on card stock would have done the trick too. Next I collected the following:
·felts
·glue
·scissors
·scrap fabric
·notions, ribbon, sequins etc
·twist ties





Using twist ties, you know, the ones that you steal from the produce department, work great for tabs. First I glued the twist ties to the back of the tabs and then I glued fabric scraps on top of them. After they dried I cut them out using the guide on the front of the printout.



I can't pretend. This project was more for me than for little Spud. But in the end he got right into the colouring of the clothes.





And matching up different crazy outfits made us both laugh. He thought putting a skirt on the boy was the funniest thing that happened all day.



Here is some more of the fun we had. Now I'm considering a career change ... to fashion ... or perhaps this is a sign I've been watching too much Project Runway?











I have these pdfs available at wee printables or just click on the "wee printables" button on the sidebar. And let me know how it goes.

I thought "I" was the only one who stole twist ties (I especially like the big paper ones in the bulk food section)!!

Thank you for sharing these adorable dolls with the public. I have printed the girls out & their clothes & MY girls & I will be making them this week. I am hopeful they will keep the kids entertained while in the car on our way to Las Vegas.

Vegas! How fun. Let us know how it goes and what you saw/did that kids enjoyed. We have been thinking of going too. Hope the dolls help make the ride go a little faster ... for everyone.
