Annie has little vanity. She just appeared the way she is. Lucky me!When I was young we didn't have Barbie dolls. Instead if we were lucky we had books of paper dolls to cut out and organize and play with. I am sure there are children out there who don't have Barbies.
I have been thinking about starting a paper doll blog. In the meantime, while I make up my mind, I am posting a paper doll I drew up yesterday. I can't figure out how to post a .pdf on google blogs so instead I will post the large jpeg version. It is Free for anyone to have fun with. You can save it and call it up and print it out.
If you click the image it should come up larger.
This is an experiment and in cutting it all out I discovered that Annie is very fine and requires good cutting out skills. Also I put too many tabs around that don't fit arms and legs exactly and can be left out. Use your judgement. This is an experiment.
Don't try to cut out her fingers and be careful with scissors around the arms and keep the base rectangle shape. Fold it around and tape the base so she will stand up.
A pipe cleaner or a pencil taped to her backside will help a lot and or she could be pasted to a card stock for added strength.
I am going to add a coloring page so that kids can color the outfits. And Annie needs friends and more wardrobe items.
Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends. If anyone finds this to be fun please let me know. I will add to this today as I progress with a line drawing coloring page for kids.
There! A black white Annie for coloring.
And you can find the pdf file .
and thanks to Celeste Bergen for telling me about how to do this.
