(Magazine)Paper Doll Magnets









Vintage magazine + clothing catalog + sticky-backed magnet sheets = these fun little paper dolls for me my daughter to play with!
I could just about spend all day doing this. It's so fun to cut out the little outfits and accessories!


Another fun thing to do with this magnet sheeting (mine came from a random craft store) would be to cut out words in pretty fonts from magazines, so you could leave little notes on the fridge that aren't quite as boring as the ones you'd buy at the store.

Or, you could put one big picture on it and make a puzzle! Fun! Hooray for easy projects :o)

  10. SUCH a cute idea. I love it and vintage magazines. I REALLY love the comment your wrote below about craft porn pics. It made me laugh out loud and then I read it too my husband. I'm a Christian too and I love how you eagerly write about your faith and your desire to pursue the Lord.

  11. I love this idea! So cute! Where did you get the vintage magazine? I'm sure there are much more conservative options for clothing. :) Thanks for posting!

  12. LOVE this idea! Do you have any suggestions for where to find vintage magazines that would work? I've been looking online - but so far haven't found what I "think" I should be looking for. THANKS!

  14. Hmm, you know, I'm not really sure where to get them! I got mine at a used book store about 4 years ago, so you could try a store like that if you have one in your area! To tell you the truth, I only used the vintage magazine for the head cut outs. The clothing came from a J. Crew catalog.

  20. I did this for my girls when they were little, but the heads & bodies were of them. I took pictures of them in leotards & cut them out, magnetized them & made clothes to play with.
