Quite simply, I love handmade Paper dolls. For this swap you will make 1 WHIMSICAL PAPER DOLL for 1 partner. size must be at least 5 inches. You will use patternered cardstock, stamps, embellishments and your paper doll will be jointed at least on the arms and legs. You may use digital printed images, as long as thay are backed with sturdy printed cardstock. This is not for the pre printed style vintage paper dolls, but your own design. You may use templates to cut out the arms and legs etc. Let your imagination run wild, your whimsical paper doll could have a birdcage as a dress, a nest as a hat, or maybe have a fish tail instead of legs! Maybe she is a fairy, or steampunk, or has a vintage feel? Lots of nice embellishments such as glitter, flowers, beads, gems etc. Put alot of effort into a doll you would be proud to recieve! No recent 1's or non rated members. No Flakers!!! Any Flakers will have their name reported on my profile for all to see. This is an international swap, please be prepared for additional postage costs. The photo is of 2 I made recently.

It says "patternered cardstock, stamps, embellishments" and "glitter, flowers, beads, gems etc." What if I don't have any of that, but use colored pencil, markers, and other supplies to decorate the doll? There would still be a lot of effort put into it. ^^ Would that be okay?

I am okay with the markers and pencils.I want the dolls to be sturdy paper though, similar to cardstock thickness, you could use cardboard from an cereal box perhaps.. The doll must be embellished in someway, you could use fabric, stickers or anything else you have at home.

Hi! I'm a paper craft addict but I've never made paper dolls before. Are there any size guidelines or resources? Should they be jointed (ie arms & legs move?) Thanks!

oops! just realised I don't meet minimum requirements! I'm still interested in the information though!
