    DescriptionEvolved from a website that has thousands of fans; the author has discovered that there is a hidden demand for paper dolls. This title contains thirty-two dolls, hundreds of clothing and accessory options and clothes and craft projects. Crafters will love the easy approach to making customised paper projects. Part art book, part craft kit, 100 per cent fun: this book contains thirty-two dolls, hundreds of clothing and accessory options, how-to for custom dolls and clothes and craft projects. A short time ago, the author discovered that there is a hidden demand for paper dolls when she listed a set of three in her shop and promptly sold hundreds. This book was created as a grander version of her successful experiment. Crafters will love the easy approach to making customised paper projects. Readers can copy pages as templates, but they can also cut pages straight from the book! With 32 pages of cardstock, readers just need scissors and glue to get started on a craft project. Once the doll(s) are created they can be used for scrap-booking, greetings cards, frameable family portraits and more. From the instructions for using inks and paint for custom dolls and clothes to the craft projects themselves, this is a sophisticated take on a nostalgic craft.

    Review quote
    Praise for "The Black Apple's Paper Doll Primer" "This book is packed full of loveliness--stunning paper dolls, creative paper projects, even a stellar toy theater, all with Emily's unique blend of irreverent sweetness. Please be seated with smelling salts nearby: Fainting might occur. It's that good." --Amy Karol, author of "Bend-the-Rules Sewing" and "Bend-the-Rules with Fabric" "A trove of great imagination, and many fine diversions." --Rob Kalin, founder of Etsy.com "It's like getting to play with the characters of Emily's paintings and step a little closer into their world." --Jenny Hart, author of "Sublime Stitching "and" Embroidered Effects" Praise for Emily Martin: ."..sweet and appealing..." --Rob Walker for "The New York Times Magazine" "The world of Emily Martin is enchanting, exquisite, and ethereal. Behind the soft hues and the peaches-and-cream palette, one can see a lively and fertile mind at work. An aching and mysterious sweetness blends with beguiling touches of the enigmatic and the peculiar, and the results are often remarkably sublime." --Richard Sala, author of "Peculia, Delphine, "and" Cat Burglar Black" "The Black Apple is the perfect place to turn to for a little taste of culture." --"Alternative Press" magazine
