Charming Japanese paper dolls.  Folded from traditional Japanese chiyogami (yuzen) and aizome plus a little cream and black card stock.



Perfect accents for cardmaking.  Lovely as bookmarks. Great gifts.



You can find a tutorial here: http://omiyageblogs.blogspot.com/2010/08/dozen-dollies.html



Please post pictures if you make your own!

These are beautiful.  I've never attempted paper crafts, but I do admire those who do them.

These are lovely, especially the blues.  I'm not sure why I always see these little girls done in reds.  Thanks for the link to the tutorial.  I must try my hand at them.

Those are all so beautiful! I love paper crafts but have never tried it.... I have no room left to store things for another craft, lol. So I LOVE to look at others hard work. Beautiful.

These are so beautiful, I would love to make some of these.  They would be great as bookmarks as you suggest, would cheer you up every time you opened your book.  Thanks for sharing the link.
