Magnetic Paper Doll Craft

Looking for a last minute handmade gift for little girls? Today, I’m sharing a quick tutorial on how to make a magnetic paper doll craft that’s perfect as a last minute gift idea. My daughter is currently in love with fashion, anything from layering several tutus and countless accessories, to coordinating outfits for her dolls. She’s at such a fun age and I’m learning how to help her grow into her new independent stage of dressing herself. Since she’s enjoying the dressing up stage so much, I thought I’d make her a magnetic paper doll that she can reuse by dressing the doll with a variety of clothing options.
