For each paper doll Nancy stamped duplicate doll parts from Character Constructions and then glued the pieces together. This is a great idea because it not only makes the paper doll more durable but it also allows you to assemble the doll pieces easily.
Punch the holes for attachment of arms and legs as needed with a brad. Color the various parts of the paper dolls with oil pastels as watercolors. Some of the cards feature images that were stamped directly onto brightly colored cardstock which blends with the watercolor areas. Place Velcro fasteners on the backs of the dolls and front of cards so that the dolls can be removed if desired. The border images were stamped using images by Stamper's Anonymous. Character Constructions stamps used for each card from The Mannequin Café that are available at The Shoppe at Somerset.
