It's A Pink Paper Doll Saturday!

It's no secret, I  have always enjoyed paper dolls. Whether they were babies, girls and boys, fashion dolls or home made, it didn't matter. Whenever there was an opportunity to create a paper doll, that opportunity had to be taken!
I am equally excited and jump at the opportunity to participate in paper doll swaps.
One of my favorites to swap, as I have posted, are the Artchix paper doll swaps. I love Helga's selection of paper dolls. They are so much fun to put together and alter. They are also a great way to to begin with paper dolls if you haven't created one yet and are looking for a fun first project.
If you already enjoy creating and altering paper dolls , to play with or to use in an altered project, there is a vast selection from which to choose.

Paper Thin Personas have 312 pages of printable paper dolls. There are several dolls in several series here.

They are charming. They are both in color and as line drawings, so they can be colored or altered.
There are also the brad jointed dolls jointed that can be put together and played with or they can be magnificently altered. This is a fine example from  Evelyn's Blog. There are some wonderful images of vintage articulated paper dolls to enjoy.

Feeling like creating a jointed paper doll for a trade. There is a wonderful selection of templates at the Enchanted Gallery. I really enjoy these, as they are larger to work with and you can get really collage crazy with these!
If you are looking for a little Pink and red Valentine's Day fun, Tipjunkie has an adorable collection of paper dolls that can be cut and created very quickly! “Little Lisha” from Tricia Rennea.

Today I have made some mini darlings with a pink wardrobe to celebrate this wonderful Pink Saturday! I began with a small paper doll template created by American Girl, which is no longer available. I added the charming faces from a Hero Arts Stamp, "Faces of Friendship"
I used the clothes page from the American Girl template as the patterns and cut out some simple pink clothes for these dollies to wear! They are so fun to make and create! They each have a little pink stand too!

Thank you for coming by this Pink Saturday to share in the wonderful Pink celebration.I hope you catch the paper doll fever!  Please take some time and go to Beverly's How Sweet The Sound, to see and enjoy the many other wonderful Pink Saturday posts.
