TIPS: I suggest printing the paper dolls and their accessories on card stock to make them nice and sturdy. I have added a base for the dolls that you can wrap into a circle behind the doll and glue or tape in place. This should allow them to stand on their own. Another thing you can do for some of the objects is to paste a strip of thin cardboard or an old file folder at the back, slightly bent to form and easel, so that the objects can stand. Or you can just cut around the feet.
The clothes can be printed on regular paper and cut out. Make sure to cut carefully around the tabs. You’ll see dotted lines on the hats. Use an Exacto blade to cut a slit along the dots to fit the hats on the dolls’ heads.
