At the DIA we've had Paper Dolls as a drop-in workshop for the last two months. It's a pretty good workshop, you get lots of cool supplies like fabric and string and you can dig through the decorative paper scrap pile to find some gems. It's occationally hard to sell to boys and middle schoolers, but all the COOL boys and middle schoolers dive in and make some pretty sweet things.
I made a few dolls using the templates we provide, but I left those at the museum for samples. Today was the last day of the workshop so I made these two, they're on a date, I think they like each other.
I don't remember ever playing with paper dolls as a kid, but I sure do like cutting and gluing.
