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 One: cut out a body and wings and attach the wings.
Step Two: Use glue stick to attach the body to cardboard and cut out.
Step Three: Cut out leaving some card board exposed for decoration on the bottom.
Step Four: Use a glob of hot glue to attach the glass gem to the face. Let cool and cut out.
Step Five: Decorate the bottom with ribbon and glitter glue. Attach the head with hot glue and decorate with a flower or ribbon rose. Decorate the wings with glitter glue.
Step Six: Cut a wire 8 inches long.
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.
