Paper Doll with Princess Dresses


Today I am sharing the sixth post in the Printable Quiet Book Series. These fun and colorful princess dresses are versions of all of the dresses worn by your favorite princesses! The dresses fit the dolls I shared earlier in the week that you can download here. 

From the first post: When our first daughter was little, I painstakingly made a felt quiet book. I spent hours cutting out pieces and hand embroidering, it took me months. My daughter loved it and played with it often, but I always wished it was easier to add pages to it. I wanted to add new pieces and new pages, but it seemed like a daunting task. 

Our second daughter is just at the age now where I am wishing for a quiet book again. When I started saving ideas and thinking about what I wanted to do for her book, I realized that a printable quiet book would be so much easier. It would be perfect for people who don't think of themselves as crafty and it would be easy to add more pages to if I wanted to later. So the printable quiet book was born. 

Between my husband and I, we have finally completed the book and I am in love with it. There are paper dolls and play sets and all sort of amazing that doesn't take more than some printing and cutting. 

You will need:
  • The Printables at the end of this post
  • Scissors 
  • magnet strips, velcro or small piece of felt
  • a glue gun
  • a Laminator and Laminating sheets (I love my Scotch Laminator)

Print both the clothes and the figures. Cut out the dresses and then laminate them and cut them out again. There are several ways you can make the clothes stick to the figures. You can add small squares of felt to the back of each figure and several squares on the background. You can also use velcro squares instead of felt. I prefer to use magnet tape on the doll and the clothes.


There are dresses for each doll including The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, The Frog Princess and more. Can you tell which dress goes to which princess?



My favorite dresses are these two, a pink and blue version of the same dress from Sleeping Beauty. My girls loves to pretend they are the fairies switching the color of the dress back and forth.



Do you know a little girl who would love these?

I have always thought that paper dolls was a lost art. They were around a bit when I was young, but not nearly as enjoyed as much as they were by prior generations. I am glad to see that kids still enjoy them. I used to use them as puppets on a stick for shows.

Paper dolls are fun. I remember having them when I was a girl. We didn't have money fro real dolls so mom made paper dolls.
