So I have a bunch of sets of historical paper dolls from when I was little, mostly Tom Tierney - 20s, 30s, civil war era, etc - all the costumes and little accesories (like top hats!).

What can I make with them??

--pictures.  make little scenes, glue them down and frame them.
--decoupage them on to candles, jewelry boxes, etc.
--scan them, and then print on to iron-on transfer paper.  (i'd go nuts for a messenger bag with an ironed-on '20s flapper girl!!)

hope those help...

Greeting Cards!

Though I wouldn't want to give them away  Tongue

you can decopage them to cabinets, dressers, or put them in frames too.  Show them off!

i like the idea of putting them on a purse, but that would be really difficult! I suggest mod- podging them onto an article of furniture (desk, chair)!

Hi. My friend bought my a book of Drag Queen paper dolls & I wanted to do something spectacular with them...
 I bought adhesive magnetic sheets & made Drag-nets! Now I have the most entertaining fridge on the block-- everyone plays with them, so many people have begged to have a set.
 You can get a roll of adhesive-backed magnetic sheets from Michael's for about $9.00.
 SO worth it!

All the goo we use, reviewed!
