When I was a little girl, I loved to play with paper dolls. With a blunt pair of scissors, I would set about cutting the clothes from the page in the paper doll book, occasionally cutting off a tab that helped hold the clothes on the doll. In thinking back, it was a harmless way to learn from a mistake. There is a new generation of paper craft people playing paper doll clothes in a creative way. They make beautiful dresses out of lovely papers, add embellishments, and place them on cards or tags, and other creative projects.
There is another reason I am enamored with these beautiful miniature creations. I have imagined an alternative career choice for a darling granddaughter, Miss Kelsey M. When she was growing up, she used to design clothes on a sketch pad. She has always had an eye for fashion experimenting with her own wardrobe from an early age. When I saw these amazing little jewels, I knew Kelsey M. could work her magic with this paper craft. I’m sharing Pinterest images (Artists unknown) to prove that paper dolls have come a long way since I was using blunt scissors.
This post is dedicated to Miss Kelsey M.
