About

Better paper dolls for a new generation

It was Thanksgiving, 2012, and I was wondering how to entertain friends and relatives who would soon be hanging around and getting underfoot. In times of stress, I often turn to crafts, so I decided to make an activity that would be easy to make, forgiving of mistakes, and fun to share.

That weekend, Paper People was born. A different approach to paper dolls, these figures are self-standing, 3-dimensional and feature mix-match bodies.

And while I had a blast developing the basic template and making my own paper people, I was unprepared for the overwhelming response after I blogged about it. Teachers started writing to tell me that Paper People had become a regular part of their curriculum. Grandparents made Paper People with their grandkids. Stay-at-homes found it to be an easy activity to keep on hand for rainy days and snow days. Crafty people from all around the world started sending me pictures of the Paper People that they had made. (see Shop Photos)

And some folks wanted me to make specific characters and sets that they could color in or embellish. For years, I have been collecting ideas. Now I share them with you.

Let the paper doll revolution commence!

    Hi! It's Bits! Maybe you already know me from one of my other shops: Artsi Bitsi or Bag Chemistry. I've been selling on Etsy since 2008. This time around I'm showcasing my paper craft toys. 'Cuz paper is low-tech, easy, ecological and beautiful.
