This finished, laminated set includes a 9 3/4" Chocolate skin-colored paper doll, matching Feelings Faces, Mix-up Faces, hair styles, and clothing for a total of 5 sheets. The Paper Doll is printed on cardstock for stability and durability. Please specify which hair sheet (hair1 OR hair2), and clothing (3a OR 3b) you would like included in your 5-sheet set. Additional sheets of accessories (clothing&hair, faces, or child dolls) can be added to your order for $2.75 per sheet. Each accessory sheet is 8 1/2" x 11" on white paper, laminated in 9" x 11.5" clear laminating pouches. Ready for you to cut out and use mounting putty to stick facial features, hair, and clothing onto the doll. Store the pieces in an envelope when not in use (be sure to remove the mounting putty first, to prevent it from hardening onto the pieces). The dolls themselves can be kept inside the Raising PEARLS book on designated pages if you laminate or cover those pages with packing tape.
Chocolate Paper Doll Set
There are paper dolls in the back of the book, so why purchase extra finished ones?
1. TO BE ABLE TO STICK FACIAL FEATURES, HAIR & CLOTHES TO THE DOLL WITHOUT TEARING. Laminated dolls and accessories allow you to use mounting putty to stick pieces together and change them frequently.
2. SAVE TIME - Most families have such busy schedules that you might just want to hop right into the activities rather than going through the steps of coloring, cutting out and laminating your dolls and accessories.
3. CHILD IS TOO YOUNG OR DOESN'T LIKE COLORING - the paper dolls are already colored for you. Choose from many skin colors, hair and a variety of clothing (check back for more soon).
4. YOU WANT YOUR PAPER DOLLS TO LAST - if you don't have a laminator or packing tape to cover the front and back of your paper dolls and accessories, they will tear and fall apart very quickly while playing.
These laminated paper dolls and all of the accessories are easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth and should keep for a long time a long time depending on how rough consumers are with them. However, bending and creasing them will cause the plastic laminate to bubble and eventually come off. This is "normal" wear for laminated paper, especially considering children will be playing with them, and therefore I will not be refunding any money for them.
Also, please be sure to remove the mounting putty from the paper dolls and accessories to prevent the putty from drying. It is most easily removed by rolling under your fingertip.
