I am so excited to have Jodi from Meaningful Mama here today! She is sharing the cutest MAGNETIC PAPER DOLLS with us today!
Paint Brush or Sponge
Pencil and a Picture of Your Kids Printed onto Paper.
Let’s get started.
The first thing I did was take a picture of the girls in their bathing suits posed like a paper doll. Try and take it straight on at their level. Also, try not to get heavy shadows.
I cut a rough area around the girls so I could know how much magnet paper to cut. I then cut off the magnet paper big enough to house the picture.
The girls set to work Mod Podging the images to the magnet paper. After the Mod Podge was completely dry, I trimmed off the excess magnet paper fairly close to their bodies. I wrote an article with tips on using Mod Podge that I hope you will check out to help you with this project.
To make the clothes, I first took plain paper and held it over their picture so I could trace custom sized clothes for their bodies.
I used these traced images as a stencil. I traced them onto the magnet paper and cut them all out. The clothes you see on the paper plate were the final product on magnet paper before coloring began.
Next, it was time for the girls to get to work coloring the garments with markers.
Is this the solution I’ve been looking for in our clothes situations around here? Maybe…just maybe.
If you want to see another fun craft we did with pictures of our kids, I’d love you to see how we made our kids into interchangeable blocks. I hope you will join me at www.meaningfulmama.com for more fun ideas.
