I LOVE Paperdolls!

My favourite cartridges at the moment are definitely the Paperdolls!  I have been using them for Friday afternoon craft sessions at my son's school - Grade 1/2s.  The first set of paperdolls we made were from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge, and we made Knights, Mermaids, Princesses, Sailor Boys, Cowboys and Cowgirls (all at 9").  Recently, I have made "Occupation" paperdolls, from the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge.  I will upload the photos from the classroom shortly, but below are two samples I made to show the kids what they would look like.  We made a total of 27 paperdolls with backgrounds, all at either 5.5" or 6".  I have also introduced my Peachy Keen Stamps to this recent endeavour, with my face stamps - LOVE THEM TOO!! :)

I have really gotten alot out of my Friday afternoon craft sessions with the kids, and I truly believe they have valued it too.  There is no 'right' or 'wrong' with our craft work, but there is listening and taking pride in our work, and each child in the class, regardless of their abilities, has truly blossomed.  They are all amazing, and their work is amazing too!  Can't wait to post a photo of it all!



Hi Deb,
welcome to blog land. The paper dolls cartridges are perfect for use with grade 1 and 2. I am sure the children loved it! Your obs(expr)ession looks awesome too, but best of all is definitely your blog header. Did you make it and then scan it? I look forward to seeing more of your creations. Thanks for the plug too!
