Printable: Halloween Paper Dolls


I've been doing a lot of fall projects lately (like this, this, and this), but I've decided that I need to switch gears and start thinking about Halloween. I started working on this printable almost three weeks ago, and although I absolutely love the result, boy am I glad it's finished! So without further ado, I present to you a set of Halloween paper dolls!

There are two dolls: one boy and one girl.


There are six costumes: a boy superhero, a girl superhero, a pirate, a fairy, Frankenstein, and a princess.



Aren't they cute? You could also use these paper dolls for scrapbooking!

NEW in 2011: Find a black and white "color your own" version HERE!

Instructions: Print on white cardstock at 100% (no scaling). Carefully cut out each paper doll, base, and costume. Cut slits in bases on solid black lines. Fold stand bases on dotted line. Match up slits in doll bases and stand bases to assemble. Fold back all costume tabs to dress dolls.

All printables are for personal, non-commercial use only.

After I finished the designs and printed them, I was faced with the task of cutting them out. Even though I specifically designed these dolls and costumes to be scissor friendly, I was dreading it. I timed myself, and it only took a little over 20 minutes! I was expecting at least an hour, so I was very happy. Also, I wanted to give you a tip...my cardstock was a little flimsy, so I added a craft stick to the back of each doll to stiffen them up a bit.


Hope you enjoy the paper dolls! My three year old can't wait to get her hands on them this morning. Thanks for stopping by!

I'm linking up... Make sure you check out the great ideas linked up at the following link parties:

I love you forever. After last Sunday's unreverent church meeting, I was just thinking that I'd like to find some paper dolls for my little girls (Dad sit up on the stand during services and not with us). Thank you, thank you! They'll love the costumes for their dolls.

Thank you for sharing such a darling design. Will be printing soon!

Jessica Rodgers said...

Cant wait to make these as a quiet toy for church. You should think about making other outfits later for us to print. My kids will love this thanks

These are so cute, but my daughter would easily rip them. I think I will print them out and run them through my Xyron machine with a magnet cartridge. They would be fun to dress up on the fridge or on a cookie sheet.

Brimful Curiosities said...

Very cool printable. Now, I'm planning to create my kids costumes so they can dress up their dolls like themselves this Halloween, too.
