If this has already been done, please let me know. Smiley

A while ago, I stumbled upon this website: http://www.theenchantedgallery.com/paperdolls.html along with random other places that makes paper dolls into an art form. After playing around with it, I really enjoyed making templates, then decorating them!

This seems like a great idea for a swap. Not only could we begin collecting them like ATCs, but they can fit inside a regular envelope.

Would anyone be interested in this? I have never organized before, but with help I would love to. Let me know your thoughts!

I would be interested.  I used to love making paper dolls. I never played with them, I just liked to make and color the clothes.  And I loved my Fashion Plates.  Did anyone else have these: http://themedestrian.com/fashion-plates-memories

I too love experimenting with clothing and designing the dolls!

oh, And I am in the middle of my very first swap so I would not be able to participate until June.

It will probably take some time to get supporters (along with preparations), so that will give you plenty of time to finish your swap. Smiley

This looks like fun. I could help with organizing but not until later - late August or early September. But if you go earlier, I will try to join.

If needed, some people (myself included) could maybe even create templates for everyone to use, if they want to focus on styling/decorating more than anything else.

I'm going to work on one today, maybe if I post a couple of dolls, it will get people inspired!

Fabulous idea!  I would love some art dolls to frame and hang on the wall but I lack wall space.  Even if I don't join I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.
