One day while surfing the net, I discovered these adorable vintage Betsy McCall paper dolls.
I knew I just had to do something with them! I decided they would be a fun thing for my granddaughter. So, I downloaded the pdf files and printed them on ink jet printable magnetic sheets. To be more efficient with the magnetic paper, I cut and pasted only the outfits I wanted so that I could fit more on a page. I also resized them to the size I wanted. Before cutting out the individual pieces, I covered each printed page, front only, with a clear non-heat laminating sheet. You could also use clear contact paper...I just happened to have picked up a whole packet of laminating sheets at a thrift store for a couple of bucks...second chances, you know! Anyway, the next step is to relax and put on a good movie while you tediously cut out all the dolls and outfits. I had the perfect sized tin to store all the pieces in. I just mod podged the front, back, and inside with some green scrapbook paper since green is my granddaughter's favorite color. Now she has a fun, quiet activity that is compact and travels well. Everything stores in the tin, and since it's metal, the dolls and clothes stick right to it!
