Paper DollsIn this gallery is a wonderful group of Paper Dolls. There are seven boys and girls representing different countries such as Spain, Austria, and Switzerland. They all have a colorful selection of costumes to wear. These paper dolls come from Ladies’ Home Journal magazines printed in the early 1900’s and were designed by Sheila Young.

TIPS: You may want to print the 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 each doll and glue or tape in place. This should allow them to stand on their own. 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 along the dots to fit the hats on the dolls’ heads.
