Traditional Beauty for a Paper Doll Classic

Several weeks ago I posted a free paper doll template for your use. I asked that anyone using it, point me to the images so that I could post here as inspiration to others.

Linda of Considerations posted this traditional tabbed outfit with all kinds of trimmings that fit beautifully into a hand made, organza bag.

Even traditional dolls can have dimension added to them with lace and feathers. This also makes a perfect swap idea for your groups. Send the doll with a dress and trimmings and let the recipient decide how to decorate it. Thank you Linda, for this timeless contribution.

I was so pleased to have your free paper doll. It whisked me back to childhood!
Someone who saw the card wondered if the doll could be made in plywood; of course, it could be, one would only need a jigsaw.

She too was pleased to be back with her memories.

Thank you so much for this lovely blog post.

Hi Kitty!
Oh my goodness! I left my dolly up on my husband's desk! I must go unearth her and dress her up. You reminded me! She's so lovely. I hope she doesn't mind a slightly wacky outfit.

Dearest Kitty,

Thank you for coming to visit me! And thank you too, for giving me some ideas for my paper ballerina! I made a book this weekend with an original story and drawings and on the cover, I want to create a theatre with a paper ballerina with joints...hmmmm....I will google some images and then proceed. Thank you and I LOVE YOUR BLOG!

Have a fabulous week! Anita
