I'd like to share my directions with you today. Start with a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of card stock for your base. Score at 1", 2 3/4", 3 3/4", 5 1/2", 7 1/4", 8 1/4", and 10".
On the 5 1/2" scoreline, mark in 5/8" from either side.
Cut a slit between the two marks. You could use a craft knife or paper cutter for this purpose. I used my Fiskars paper cutter.
Stamp and color your doll image on a piece of white cardstock 3 1/2" x 7".
Cut out doll, leaving a 1" section at the bottom.
Fold your base piece on the score lines. Apply scor-tape on the end sections.
If desired, cut patterned paper to decorate the base -- one piece 3 1/4" x 4" and two pieces 3/4" x 4".
On the 3 1/4" x 4" piece mark the back at 2" and cut a slot on this line to allow doll to protrude. Apply tape to edges and on either side of the slot.
Insert doll from underneath.
Close bottom of base, catching the 1" section of the cut-out doll between the lines of scor-tape.
Turn over and adjust doll in the slot.
You can dress her with her cut-out apparel.
And she folds flat for storage.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and will try it. Be sure to come back tomorrow for the official start of the January Blog Hop. I'm excited about the projects I have created using these paper dolls, as are all the rest of the designers.
