Fun with Paperdolls

Version 1

Version 2

I ordered some vintage paperdolls (the kind where the little girls used to sew the dolls clothing) a couple of weeks ago on Ebay and it was really therapeutic putting this collage together. I'm sure my teenage son and husband thought I was nuts as I'm sitting at the kitchen table playing with paperdolls made for a 6 year old. Anyways, I had fun and that's what counts! ;)

Can't decide which I like better...with or without a frame. I want to sell this in my Etsy Shop so I would love to have your input. :)

  4. Sounds like you had a lot of fun girl :-)

    I like the second one the best, the background seems lighter and I like that frame :-)

  7. i think the frame version looks better, it looks more vintage which is what the paperdolls are about.

    i think it's really cute by the way :) x

  12. I come across your blog when I was browsing your flickr photos. Very nice photos there and very inspiring.

    These paper dolls indeed remind me of my childhood. I used to cut and play and lot of these back then.

    I prefer the one with a frame version. It's more "vintagey".
