Little Crafts: paper dolls

Pin It

If you have a little girl crafter in your life, then this is a fun project you can do together.


Next time you see one of those fashion round ups in a magazine, tear it out to use for paper dolls.


Glue the fashion round up onto a piece of light weight card stock and cut out each top. I used a manila file folder and glue stick.


Search online for paper dolls – I used vintage paper dolls from the 1940’s. Print them out on cardstock and cut them out. You’ll need to do a few trial print runs to get the size right so the clothes fit properly.


My vintage girls needed a more modern look, so I made them each a pair of leggings. Use tracing paper over your paper doll to make a template and then use the pattern on black cardstock to make each pair of leggings.


Removable double-sided tape works well to stick on the clothes.
The girls are looking good in neutral t-shirts.


Bright red patterns, stripes and solids. The girl in the middle is showing some of her blue lingerie. Hmmmm….


Flowing, soft knit t-shirts look great with the black leggings!


School will be out soon and this project would make a great indoor activity for your little girl crafter! 

Have fun and thanks for visiting.
