FREE Paper Dolls - Great Scrapbook Embellishments

When I was a kid I LOVED paper dolls! We traveled alot for vacations and my sister and I always got a new "book" of paper dolls for eac trip. We loved them!

Now, as a scrapbooker, I can not only keep my memory of paper dolls alive, but use them as embellishments to my scrapbook layout pages! I stumbled on this site and although many are not my "style", it is still great to use the ones that are (I Love Lucy to mention my favorite!) and use them on a scrapbook page! Just print them out on white cardstock!

Free Paper Dolls

Print them out for your little girls to play with and no one will say a word if you want to print some out for yourself to play with! Reliving memories is what scrapbooking is all about!!

There is an option to purchase a set of paper dolls using YOUR OWN photo of the person's face. Apparently you send her a photo of your person and she makes the face of that person on a paper doll. Might be something interesting for a gift idea!

Have fun!

Thanks for the link to the paper dolls site. I too have fond memories of them as a kid. I like how you can put your own portraite into the dolls. I have had an idea to make one to use as refridgerator magnets for my daughter using her picture, now I don't have to draw all my own clothes!
The idea for scrapbooking is great too. So glad I found your blog. Thanks for sharing!

Glad to have you here! I used to use coloring book figures, cut them out, and glue a photo face of my kids on the face of the coloring book figure and give as gifts to grand parents! The kids got to decorate the clothes/body any way they wanted or if they wanted to be another character, I'd just paste their photo face on that too! Was alot of fun!
