Paper Doll Craft Ideas

On Monday we told you about the great new Paper Dolly Parade greeting cards by Anna Sui. We love these cards not only for their great design but also because they can be repurposed into fabulous crafts. We’ve made ours into standing paper dolls to play with and paper doll magnets. CD Note: You can also make these crafts using any image cut from a greeting card or box. Here’s how:

Standing Paper Dolls

Materials

  • Anna Sui paper doll card or cut out image of your choice 
  • Thick poster board paper (we used scrap paper)
  • Glue or tape
  • Scissors

Directions

  1. Use a precut paper doll or cut out an image of a doll from a card or box. Image should be stiff. CD Ideas: Draw your own doll, cut it out and paste it onto cardboard.
  2. Cut a 1/2″-3/4″ strip of thick poster board.
  3. Glue or tape the poster board strip to the back of the card.

Make A Paper Doll Magnet

Materials

  • Anna Sui paper doll card or cut out image of your choice 
  • Magnets: Use self adhesive business card magnets, other flexible magnets or repurpose “promotional” magnets you’ve received from shops
  • Glue stick (if using magnets that are not self adhesive)
  • Scissors

Directions

  1. Use a precut paper doll or cut out an image of a doll from a card or box. Image should be stiff. CD Ideas: Draw your own doll, cut it out and paste it onto cardboard.
  2. Cut up a flexible magnet into strips. We recycled one that was a promotion from a store. You may also use self adhesive business card magnets available in office supply stores or non-self adhesive flexible magnets.
  3. If using a non-adhesive magnet, add some glue stick to one side and stick onto the back of the paper doll image. If using a self adhesive magnet, simply remove the protective paper and stick to the magnet.
  4. Stick to any metal surface.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
