Free Printable Scripture Dolls Tutorial

I had so much fun making  little “Scripture Dolls”!  They make a sweet little gift and can hang just about anywhere with an encouraging verse to lift your spirits.

These are the supplies I used: print out of doll bodies, print out of faces and wings, a piece of light print scrapbook paper, some cardboard (a cereal box works!), wire, and glass gems.

I made the scripture doll bodies on white paper.  Download the body pdf, but when you print it out, use lightly printed scrapbook paper.

Step Seven:  After the glitter glue is dry, punch holes with a thumb tack and thread the wire hanger, curling the ends.

I decided to make a new version of these scripture dolls for a craft kit to sell in my Etsy Shop .

I’ve updated the new scripture dolls with modern clip art heads. The kit sells for $12.00 with free shipping with all the supplies to make 6 paper dolls.  This kit makes it easy to assemble scripture dolls without coming up with the supplies that aren’t included in my CLICK AND PRINT.
