Laminated Dolls

Got this idea from Chasing Cheerios and she got it from a place I had already bookmarked it from called Kiddley and Kiddley got it from Sarah from The Small Object so I had to do it of course.... It seems if I see something I like at 2 places I eventually get moving to do it.

These are printable paper dolls that can be either a boy or a girl (my girls kept saying they were boys, but I said it was just a girl with her hair tied back ;) and you stick fabric over them to make them dressed. However Cheerios laminated them and magnetised them so we went with her idea. The magnet thing didn't work for me (mine weren't strong enough) so we are just using blu tack to put the pieces on the doll for the moment.

We spent over an hour this morning drawing clothes and accessories and laminating our pieces. Sorry no before pics or tutorials we were in our pj's and made a huge mess and were so concentrated that I forgot(didn't want) to take photos.

Here are the girls dressed in all their glory.

That is so cute! I love homemade toys! The toy making is fun and the playing even more! I remmeber paper dolls being one of my favorite things as a little girl, but for some reasons I did not think to make paper dolls for my daughter... until now!
