Granddaughter Paper Dolls

Spent a few hours with my granddaughters this week teaching them how to make paper dolls like I did when I was little. My sister and I used dolls from the Sears catalog but I gave the project a modern twist by using digital photography. We had a great time. Thought you might want to see how we did it.  Illustrators often combine photos and drawn images in their illustrations. Take a look at Knuffle Bunny. Wouldn’t it be fun to use these images the girls to create a book all about them? If you decide to do it, let me know how it turns out.  (BTW: The dolls make great fridge magnets too!
