I've decided to start a string of paper art doll swaps. Way back when, years ago, I joined a few of these swaps and received some AMAZING paper dolls in return for the hard work I put in, and I wanted to start that again - with theme challenges! Now for the third installment with the theme of....DIA DE LOS MUERTOS!!!


  • you will have 1 partner to which you will send 1 altered/ drawn/ decorated paper art doll in the theme of "Dia de los Muertos" or the Mexican "Day of the Dead"

  • you must print your doll template from the following site for ease and swap uniformity: www.theenchantedgallery.com/paperdolls.html

  • be sure to use a sturdy backing for your doll (like cardstock or a light cardboard)

  • you may use any medium, so long as you don't slap a sticker on it and call it good....make it something you would want to receive...go for hearts! <3

  • included somewhere in your swap package must be a card with your swapbot user ID, the date of the swap, and the swap name (easier for your partner to rate you)

  • this swap will be regional (USA), but feel free to take this idea and run with it, creating an international version...after all, sharing is caring! :)


  • if you are hoping to receive hearts, you may add extras to the package (though it's not required).

  • you will have 1 month after the signup date to create and send your fairy art doll, so there is no reason your package should be late!

  • I am unable to angel this swap, so slackers and flakers need not join

  • newbies are NOT welcome to this particular swap...MUST HAVE @ LEAST 50 TYPE 3 SWAPS UNDER YOUR BELT. (I will be checking profiles before assigning partners and reserve the right to ban anyone if I feel they are suspicious)

So, let's have fun with this! Anyone who has any questions, feel free to message/ DM me!

Maybe you can start paperdolls group. There is one but it is inactive for long time.

@flowerlady57 The choice is up to you! You may choose any of the templates provided on the page. :)

@JudalineZ While the idea seems fun, I don't have enough free time to keep up with regular paper dolls, or to manage a group right now. ha ha!
