Sooo, first time poster (project wise), long time lurker here.  And I know, I'm going to disappoint y'all since I don't have pics posted yet, but I will post them this evening.  I am just so excited to share this new project I made with all you guys that I couldn't wait until I posted the pics!




I, like many of you I'm sure, have TONS of refrigerator magnets that are outdated or just taking of precious artwork space.  I also have a Sizzix die-cuttter for scrapbooking and one night, BOOM! went a light bulb!  I used the old magnets with the die-cutter and made "paper" dolls!  Now, I know that it's been done before with the printable magnets and such, but I just really liked how I god rid of all the old magnets on my fridge and didn't have to go and buy anything.  I just cut out the shapes of the magnets and of the paper to cover them, and then mod-podged them on!

One thing I did learn afterwards, is that I needed to peel off the old sticker on the magnet for it to have the best adhering power, so I wish I would have done that BEFORE I cut out all the shapes!  Oh well, lesson learned.

Then my hubby had a piece of scrap steel that we are cutting and framing so that the sweet girl that receives this kick-butt re-purposed gift can hang it on her wall.

Thanks for reading my novel, and I promise, pics in progress up TONIGHT!

(If this total idea has been done before, I apologize, I couldn't find anything.  Send me a link so I can check it out if you do know of another!)

G'day!
Angel

In progress shot.  The cut-out magnets on the left, and the ones already mod-podged and papered on the right.


A close up of the ones just cut out.

And I apologize for the shoddy pics, the morning sun was in my eyes nd reflecting weird of my screen.  I guess I should have checked them later in the day before I posted them.  Oh well!

Comments and criticisms welcomed!

How fun!  I know my girls would love that, and it's so much cuter than the character ones-- great idea!

omg i love it!

How would i make one of these myself? I don't have a die cutter, is there a template somewhere on the net where I can print and use magnetic sheets and do another type of doll?

These are just unreal :-)

Oh how nice, thank you!  I don't know of a specific pattern, but I'm sure you could just google one, or even just draw one out.  I was going to use those magnet sheets you can print on, but then I couldn't find mine.  I'm glad I thought to recycle those magnets instead.

If you do cut them out by hand, make sure you have nice sharp scissors.  It won't hurt your hands as much then!

This may be a little late if you were planning a Christmas present but I made some hannah montana magnetic paper dolls for my 6 yr old niece that turned out pretty cool.

I used this online paper doll site called stardoll.com and basically took screen shots of the doll and all the clothes individually and then printed them out on paintbrush.  I had to hand cut each piece out and it was pretty tedious but it turned out sooooo cool!

I made mine miniature and made a cute little magnetic case for them so she can carry them to all of her big sisters softball games.

I may be able to post some pics of mine if I can figure it out and if its not hijacking

I love yours Saint_Angel!  I love the way you gave them textured looking hair, too cute! I wish I had a die-cutter

Ohhh, please do post your pics!  It's not hijacking, it's sharing!  Smiley  I'd love to see what others have done, and miniature, what a pain I'm sure!  And thanks for the compliments!  Cheesy
