Paper Doll Blocks + Video + Free Image

I am in a paper doll mood!  I must be in a wooden block kind of mood, too.  Did you see the other paper doll block?  My great aunt Jane found these Sixties (I think) paper dolls for my mom quite some time ago.  They are ADORABLE!  You'll notice this one is named Karen - that's my mom's name, too!

I keep this set of blocks on my desk in the summer.  I think they look like they're wearing swimsuits.  They make me smile every time I see them.  I change the little cuties around every once in awhile, so I see a different one.  

I've got these paper dolls all ready to be printed.   They are on a beautiful vintage ledger sheet which really adds character to the blocks.  You can download them either with or without the cut lines.   The cut lines are there so you don't have to figure out where the center is on each doll.  Just cut right inside the lines.  

My blocks are 1 1/2", but you could use a different size.  You would just need to print the paper dolls the size of your blocks.  I explain a little better how to do that in the video below.

You need just a few supplies.  First, download the paper dolls.

Next, gather wooden blocks, glue, sandpaper, distress ink, and modge podge.

Paper Doll Blocks are so easy and just so cute!  Check out the video for all the tips:

Tomorrow when I get to work, I'll change my blocks around  - I think it might be Susie's turn!

So glad you came by!
