Paper Dolls

I made these paper dolls for my little nieces when they turned 2 years old.
I designed the dolls to look like them- just for extra fun.

Since the girls were only 2 years old, I decided to make them a little more durable by laminating the dolls and clothes and adding stick-on velcro.

I made a bunch of different fun outfits for each girl- because girls need lots of clothes...

and becuase once I got started I just couldn't stop.
Then I shipped them off the the birthday girls.

2 years later (a few days ago) Jaime reminded me about these dolls and said her second little girl, who's now almost 2, played with the dolls all through church (a great quiet activity).

And then we got to thinking... since the work is already done, why not share with you too?
So click on the link above each picture below and print your own!

a few tips..
*I used my little at-home laminator which uses the laminating envelopes and is a little bit thicker than having them laminated on the giant roll. I'm sure either will work but thicker = more durable.
*Print dolls and clothes on cardstock (again to make them stronger).
*I bought a roll of sticky-back velcro so I could cut the pieces the size I needed. Put the rough side of the velcro on the doll and the fuzzy side on the back of the clothes.
*I somehow lost one of the pages of clothes, sorry. Like I said, it's been a couple years. If I find it I'll post it later :)

Have Fun!
