I am trying to figure out how to make a set of magnetic paper dolls for my grandaughter.

I have located printable sheets of magnet paper that can be cut by die cut machines but what I am looking for is something to make the paper doll magnetic so that I don't have to have a metal play ground....I just want the magnetic clothes to stick to the paper doll...does that make sense? Anyone out there have any suggestions for me?

GrammyCris - Do you have to have the clothes stick? I mean, remember when we played with them? The clothing fit over the doll with the tabs of the clothing. Dresses would have the tabs at the top and on the sides (with the top being most important because if you held the doll up, the dress was more apt to stay on the doll!!

Otherwise, I would think you would have to make the base doll with the magnetic side down....then, let the magnetic down side of the clothing go to the base doll. I just went around the corner to see if this would work with two magnetic sheets. The magnetic part of the top piece adhered nicely to the front of the other sheet (which would be your base sheet).

I don't think the base doll could have much on it other than a little paint for a bathing suit or underwear (???), or I'm not sure the top piece would adhere that good.

Does this make sense?

Is that what you're asking?

Is there any kind of magnetic paint? I swear I herd of it but never looked for it anywhere. (Hmmm. Future craft invention?!)

Char your magnet idea was great....why couldn't I remember that magnets would attract to each other...duh! I will have to try that with the printable sheets I bought....

Aha! I was thinking you could cut out a doll in magnetic paper, then cut other ones in different colors. If you did that, you could make the doll in different colors and facial features, having cultural dolls!

I remember several mb people making these sets.

http://www.skiptomylou.o...d-fun-foam-sewing-dolls/

http://www.cricutholiday...with-everyday-paper.html

This last one I found on the internet.

http://www.customcrops.c...info.php?articles_id=213

I remember someone using clear Velcro dots to adhear the clothes to the doll.
I thought I saved her project but can't seem to find it right now.
I think it was from the old mb. She also used a small metal lunchbox to hold all the dolls and clothes. The lunchbox also was the place to put the dolls on the cover for a background.
I have her pictures saved if anyone wants to see them.
