Fun With Paper Dolls

Each month I meet with a wonderful group of ladies to stamp and share ideas with. We call ourselves Frayed Knots.  We all take turns teaching a class throughout the year. April was my month to teach.  Well instead of teaching something new I thought it would be fun for all of us to make a paper doll.  I cut each doll at 8 inches using the Cricut cartridge Paper Doll Dress Up. I also cut out outfits & hair styles for each doll. I provided embellishments and turned the group loose to create their doll.  As you can tell by the photos they all turned out too cute!  Each doll is so unique! These dolls were made for a special member of our group who is experiencing some health issues.  I thought it would be nice to link all the dolls together to form a banner and give them to our friend. This way she can hang up the dolls in her room while she is recovering from recent surgery and feel like we are all with her (we all wrote her a get well note on the back of the doll we made). Hopefully these dolls will bring a smile to her each time she looks at them.
