When you print out your paper doll body, you have a few options. You can use a variety of colored cardstock, print out the desired templates on magnet sheets (Compare Prices), or even use printer sticker sheets (Compare Prices). Color in your doll body and make facial and other features using crayon, markers, or whatever method you prefer. Consider using yarn or embroidery floss for hair, or make wigs using felt scraps. Another idea is to make paper dolls that look like you and your friends by using photos. If you use cardstock or regular paper, you might want to glue your paper doll onto a lightweight cardboard base to make it sturdier. To protect your finished dolls, laminate or cover them with clear contact paper.

If your paper doll needs a winter coat or a rain slicker, check out these templates. Dress up a winter coat by gluing a little fake fur trim around the collar and sleeves, and don't forget to decorate a cap and boots to match. If you want the rain jacket to have a 'slick' look, try painting it with a few thin coats of shiny, dimensional fabric paint or I even used stained glass paint.
