I have been thinking about new ways to entertain Savannah. She’s two and sometimes just needs something new to occupy her attention for the next 15 10 5 minutes. I had an interesting idea the other day, paper dolls. Paper and a two year old don’t always mix well… what could be used thats stronger than paper? Magnets! I have seen some really cool magnet paper dolls, but I am kind of picky and I don’t know where to look to find them.
First draft on the computer. So far so good. I hoped they would work once printed and cut out, but they looked so pretty on the computer. I ended up scanning in my pictures and putting them into paint to color them in. After that I copied them back into word where I could put them all for easier printing and making sure they would fit the doll.
I love how the back of each dress is a complete magnet, I’ve read reviews where if done otherwise they do not work as well.
I wanted the doll to have a permanent home so I used mod-podge to attach the doll to a metal plate.
In the end, this turned out wonderful! I cannot find paper dolls like these anywhere else, and my sweet princess loves them. The nicest part, if a dress rips all I have to do is print a new one.
I had such fun making these dolls if you would like to download my dolls and print them for yourself, you can do so here. Enjoy!

Awesome craft idea. Great way for little ones to play dress up, easier than putting the clothes on dolls.
