Cass Creating Now Tutorial - Paper Dolls - 6 May 2016

Today's tutorial is


Circle Punch 1 1/4 inch
 Images (2 of each image)

I have used "Bernice Red Hat,"  "Lucky Leprechaun,"  "Lucy Valentine Girl,"  "School Boy,"  "School Girl 2,"  "Red Hat Mama,"  "The Scarecrow and his Friend," "Pilgrim Man," and "School Bear."  These can all can be found at Robyn's Digital Stamps and More Shop


The first thing to do is to print your images twice, approximately 4 inches in height, in mirror versions.  Check out the pencils on  "School Bear" and the faces on "Ernie the Hedgehog." 

Colour each of the images in different colours and fussy cut.
Glue back to back and trim any pieces that may not meet.

Punch out one circle for each doll and glue one side.

 Fold each circle in half.

Cut through halfway on the curved side

Cut the image the same depth as the cut on the half circle.   Insert the two pieces together.

If you are making them for smaller children, you can make a more 
permanent base by inserting a flat strip into the cut of the half circle

Only glue the top half of the doll, leaving the bottom half open

Align bottom of dolls and cut to match the circle cut.

Open the bottom half of doll and glue strip in circle to the inside, ensuring cuts are aligned.

Glue bottom of doll and press together.  Trim excess of strip away.  
Although this step can be a bit tricky, it does make for a very strong 
base that will not come out, which is great for the smaller ones.

I hope you have fun creating some of these little paper dolls.  They make great table decorations for parties and celebrations and are great for children to not only play with, but also to colour and make themselves, with some help with the cutting step.
