Princess Paper Dolls

Kid in candy shop time?  Ok!




I love me some big poofy dresses.  Here's how to play:

You'll need printable magnet sheets.  You can find some at Wal-Mart ($6 for 3 sheets) or an office supply store, or Amazon (5-pack for $8.50 or so).

Print


Cut


Dress her dress her dress her in her do-mi-do duds.

Magnet sheets are nice because you can layer them.

Originally ALL the outfits were going to be black, as per the Entwined story, but that was a whooooole lot of work for just a one-note joke, and I am nothing if not a lazy bum.  They're historically accurate though*, so now you can impress your friends with your knowledge of garibaldi blouses.  You're welcome.

*insofar as the medium allows. They are cartoons.


Hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving!  ^_^

Beautiful! Oh gosh these bring me back to my paper doll loving days (I think I still have the ones I made as a kid lying around). Heather you are awesome and super talented! And just out of curiosity is that green dress like the one Scarlett wears in Gone With the Wind when she visits Rhett in the jail? I'm almost certain that it is. Either way super awesome and a great gift idea. :)

These are completely AWESOME! Thanks for making them and sharing them! I'm going to get me some magnetic printing paper and print them out!

Heather Dixon said...

@Katie - normal printer should work great (if it's an inkjet.)

@Janine - hahaha! I was hoping someone would notice that ^_^

@Erica - Tangled dolls would be awesome...I don't know if Disney's done those yet or not (I know they have them for the other princesses...I should check it out.)

@Abby - It might have been me! I was there on Wednesday. Any other day it was my evil twin, who likes to set things on fire.

Would you make a Mr. Bradford too? Please? And maybe Bramble... and Clover... and Delphinium... and all of them... Please?

Heather Dixon said...

@Anony & Elise - lolol...I totally should! I would love to do a Bramble.

Cate said...

So, I read _Entwined_ about three months ago, and LOVED it, and since then I've been following you on your blog, and I found the Azalea paper dolls that you made...and since you said we could print them out and play with them ourselves...you're going to make me into the Favorite Aunt at Christmas this year. :) So, thanks, and I think your work (both drawing work and writing work) is fantastic!

Heather Dixon said...

@Cate - Yesssss! Favorite aunt FTW!! *fist pump* That's the title I aspire to!
