Paper Doll Portraits

While waiting at the Salon where I get beautified. I was flipping through a magazine. It was a design magazine I've never seen before and to be honest, I can't remember the name of. It was mostly modern design which I appreciate, but don't necessarily use to in my home. I did however find a clever idea within the pages of this publication. They had taken an antique picture of a little girl and used different trims and fabrics to dress her up. I thought to myself this was the perfect excuse to play with paper dolls,
and so I did.
I googled the word paper doll and found an Image I liked, Saved it to my computer and Printed it onto card stock,
Played dress up
Glued them onto some cute scrapbook paper and Framed them.
I know the perfect spot for them in my Daughter's Nursery.

What a wickedly awesome idea! Love it & I am sure your daughter will too. I will probably copy this idea somewhere down the road for my granddaugher Jessica. Kudos to you!

I have some vintage barbie paper dolls from when I was a child that I haven't had the heart to part with yet. Now, I know what to do!

I need a daughter to craft for. But a third pregnancy just sounds exhausting...

Thanks for sharing this with my readers at Creative Juice Thursday!

really cute! She kinda reminds me of a Campbell's soup kid! :) This would be a fun project- I love the framed version of paper dolls. Thanks for sharing with Transformations and Treasures!

The Pink outfit is most definitely made out of ribbon. So glad you liked it!
