Description

Evolved 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.
