Jointed ATC Paper Dolls
These dolls are fun to make and receive! You will make two dolls that are attached to an ATC; with body parts that fold up so the finished doll fits into a card sleeve. Dolls should be jointed with brads at the shoulders and hips (but can also bend at the knees and elbows). Your dolls can be the same or different, and you will mail them to randomly chosen players. You may need to mail outside the US, but if you stretch your doll out and place it inside folded paper & then into a business size envelope; it may only cost only one international stamp (or a little bit more).
The samples I collected are NOT all attached to an ATC background, but I included them as idea starters. Ours should have an ATC base. You can find doll “sets” on the web, but please use them for pattern pieces only. Come up with your own unique creative dolls! Find samples here: http://www.pinterest.com/debclaxton/atc-paper-dolls/
