So, I've wanted to make some magnetic personalized paper dolls for the kids for a while now. Little lady does this entire whiteboard village that she makes on our large magnetic whiteboard, and we keep having to draw ourselves in on it. I thought... How awesome would it be if I made paper dolls with our faces on it and we could use that? So, I started looking for ideas in my usual place..... Pinterest...
I found an idea I really liked, but I got called away and when I returned (as I hadn't pinned it) it was gone, and now I can't find it. So... I decided to turn to the paper dolls from Betsy McCall. I saved a bunch of the pictures, and then brought them up in Paint Shop Pro.
I cut our heads out from our photographs and put them on the dolls. Then I printed them out. I only had non-adhesive magnetic paper (although I've ordered the other kind for more) so the kids had to glue the printed dolls onto the magnetic paper.
The kids wanted to cut out their own dolls and pictures. I was all to happy to let them!
The beginnings of the dry-wipe and magnetic people house!
Little Lady has started playing! It's a hit!! YEAH!!!
