For parents/adults:

Self-adhesive magnetic foil can be found in craft stores. It can be easily cut to size with household scissors.


Step 1

First, print out the template for the dress-up doll.

Carefully cut out the figure and her dresses. Colour the underwear however you like with felt tip pens. You can also decide what hair colour your doll should have.

Step 2

Select a suitable metal tin or box. It should be big enough so that there is enough space for the doll. If the lid of the box has a nice pattern on it, you can stick the doll straight onto the lid.

If not, select some nice paper and decorate the lid with it, using the Pritt Stick. Then carefully glue on the doll with PVA Craft Glue.

Make sure that everything is well stuck down. Then nothing can come loose when you change the clothes.

Step 3

Cut out the various clothes and accessories. Stick them onto single coloured craft paper with the Pritt stick.

Step 4

Then you can transform the clothes into wonderful creations, however you like. All you need to do is cover them in paper or fabric.

Why not use the paper doily, coloured ribbon, little glitter stones or beads. Let your imagination run wild!

Step 5

Once the glue is dry, put a strip of magnetic foil on the back of each item of clothing.

Cut the magnetic foil to size, remove the plastic film and stick it onto the piece of clothing. Finished! Let the fashion show begin.

Tips and tricks:

You want to be the model! No problem. Simply stick a photo of yourself on the doll and then you can design the most beautiful clothes and show them off on the catwalk.
