Once Upon a Princess Magnetic Paperdoll




When I started this blog, the main purpose was to post some of my crafty creations. However, if you read the disclaimer on the sidebar, I really only collect crafting supplies. There isn't much "creating" going on. But I just had to have this adorable Cricut cartridge! And since I'm too old to play with dolls (at least when others are around), I made this paperdoll set for my youngest granddaughter. I used my Xyron to laminate and add the magnetic backing to these pieces. Unfortunately, the magnets aren't strong enough to keep the clothing in place. But I don't really think that will be a problem; Nana had more fun making these than granddaughter will ever have playing with them!

  1. Those are adorable! You might try using some of the repositionable adhesive on the back of the clothes. Together with the magnet maybe there will be enough "stick". I don't know why they made those magnetic sheets so weak.
