Paper Doll Book

If you want to make some really cute books
with your class, you need this book. 

You will find directions for
pop-up books
accordion books
flip books
and many more...

One of my favorites is a Paper Doll book.
This is a perfect project to display at Parent's Night.

Who Am I?
Close this window
Start with the 10" Multicultural People Cut-Outs.
CTP 6243
Have each child decorate the person
to look like him/her self.
Make a Paper Doll book for the clothes.

Inside the shirt the child writes clues to Who Am I?

Put the child's picture on the back
so parents can check their guesses.

Directions for making the book can be found at


Here are actual pictures of making the doll clothes.

To fit the cut-out doll start with a 6" X 9" piece of paper.

Fold the paper in half hot dog style.

Then, fold the paper again hamburger style.

Fold one more time.

Open the paper.  You should have eight sections.

Cut off sections 5 and 8.  Save them for later use.

Fold the large part in half.

Cut a wedge from along the bottom of the fold.

That makes the legs of the pants.

Fold in sections 1 and 4. 
That makes the shirt.
The written part of the book goes inside the shirt.

Glue parts 5 and 8 to the top of the shoulders to make the sleeves.

Decorate with buttons, ribbons, paper....
Use your imagination.

And, that's how to make a Paper Doll Book!
