Ribbon Embellished Paper Dolls

Hello, May Arts fans!  I am SO excited to share these super fun paper dolls with you today!  I love paper dolls.  I seriously do.  When the Vintage Street Market package arrived including paper dolls I simply could not bring myself to do anything but EXACTLY what my heart desired…play with PAPER DOLLS!  So, today I’m going to show you a fun way to create an extra special set of paper dolls for someone special in your life.  Don’t worry…it’s totally okay if they are a grown up!  😉


To begin, cut out one of the envelopes from the VSM kit.  Assemble as the instructions using the Helmar tape runner to adhere the tabs.

Punch out the paper doll of your choice and cut out a few outfits to go with her.

Using the May Arts Pom Poms and May Arts silk ribbon, add ribbon details to each outfit to really make them pop!

Add a name to the envelope with alphabet stickers and adhere pom pom ribbon to accent.  Carefully place one outfit on your doll and put the doll and her extra fancy outfits into the envelope to give to a paper doll lover!

Thanks so much for reading!  I hope you will go make some paper dolls today!  I had so much fun creating mine!
