Color Your Own Paperdolls

Mom - this is for you!  My mom loves paper dolls.  She collects them and fondly remembers playing with them as a child.  I keep an eye out for vintage paper dolls to add to her collection.  Mom, these aren't vintage, but they are cute!

Paper Sweeties has darling girl (and boy) stamps and clothes that are perfect for paper dolls.  This kit is packed in an armoire box (here's the side view).

Paper dolls, clothes, notecards, envelopes, seals, and crayons are all packed inside.

Just add tabs to the clothes to change them into paper doll clothes and check to see if anything needs to be done to "doll" for the tabbed clothes to fit.  For example, Abigail needs her hair cut away from her shoulders so the tabs can be slipped over her shoulders.

Paper Sweeties is gearing up for the June Release.  For this kit, I used the new Faith Hope Love and Wedding Day sets.  The Paper Sweeties blog is showing sneak peeks today.  Let's go see what everyone's created!
