In Sarah's Silks Dress-up Pieces
April 15th, 2020
PAPER DOLLS HAVE been a popular stay-at-home activity in America since the 1700’s. Families in Japan have folded origami paper dolls dating all the way back to the 800's.
When my sisters and I were young, we would often lose ourselves in imaginative play with paper dolls that we would cut from my mother's thick paper watercolor paper. We loved to dress them up and act out stories and adventures together!
You can download Sarah's Silks paper doll printable templates here.
For best results print these out on a heavy card stock and cut out using sharp scissors.
"I’ve collected many paper dolls over the years - my current favorite is of Frida Kahlo."
I love to see your creations! Share them with me on Instagram using #sarahssilks
