For the month of June at Organize Craft Supplies, we are going to be focusing on doll making crafts. One of the fun and easy crafts is Paper Dolls. Most little girls have at some point enjoyed paper dolls and the many variations. But, now Paper Dolls have grown up. The crafts are for adults as well. So gather your crayons, markers or paints and be prepared to have some fun.
Talented artist and teacher KarenTBTen has created an informative page about how to make your own paper dolls. She has loaded it with lots of resources for everything from basic paper doll making to some quite creative ways to make Paper Dolls the grown-up way.
Here is one of my favorite books on the craft of paper doll making. Author Rhonda Rainey gives her readers more than their money’s worth with tons of ideas and how-tos to make charming and amazing paper dolls and the fancy clothes to go with them. Click on the image to purchase it.
One of the popular trends in paper doll making is to create dolls from the Victorian era. Here are two outfits, one for a boy and one for a girl. They are free for you to size and print out, then color in and create your own Victorian children. Use the advice and tips in Karen’s article to end with a set of charming young children, all dressed and ready for a party.
Then enjoy learning and creating delightful paper dolls to display your own artistic talent. Next we will be learning how to make Waldorf Dolls, so stayed tuned. Or better yet, subscribe to our updates and don’t miss any of our articles.
