1:6 scale paper dolls for Barbie and friends

Did you like to play with paper dolls as a child? My favorite part was cutting them out! So I thought maybe Barbie would like her own set of paper dolls to play with. You can now download a printable PDF file from my Etsy shop for $2.99 that will print out two sets of mini paper dolls on one page. Each set contains a folio to house your doll and outfits, a doll, plus 6 pages of outfits (3 in full color and 3 for your doll to color). I even included extra dolls in case you make a cutting mistake. Have fun playing!

Hallmark introduced their 2020 Keepsake ornaments this weekend. These can be a treasure trove of 1:6 scale miniatures for your fashion doll dioramas. I’ve picked up a few so far. Here are a couple of them.

First, in honor of Princess Beatrice’s wedding, this adorable wedding cake.

Barbie miniature

I stopped in my local dollar store this afternoon and found these miniature Barbie figurines. They had a variety—from chef Barbie to Baseball Barbie—but I thought this one was the cutest. I’m considering repainting her. Maybe all white or all gold. Or maybe just repaint her outfit so she looks more like a porcelain tchotchke. Thoughts?

Barbie portraits

You know us fabric hoarders—we can’t bear to throw out usable scraps of fabric. After I had made a bunch of face masks from the new Riley Blake Barbie print fabric, I had all these odd size scraps left over. The images make me think of Andy Warhol portraits. So … I framed them! In Barbie scale frames, of course. The framed image is 4” x 3” —just perfect for your Barbie diorama. They are available individually or collect them all.
