Today is International Women’s Day and this coming Sunday is Mother’s Day in
the UK, so to celebrate we have a free printable card to make plus a paper doll chain to hang in your window. We’ve teamed up with our friends at Thread Bear Design and used their gorgeous new Mini Dolls for inspiration for the illustrations below.
To use the paper doll template to create a cute Mother’s Day card, carefully cut the doll out. Next fold in the middle, color in and write inside ready to give to your mom!
To make the Paper Doll Chains, get a large piece of paper (ideally A3 in size) and cut it into 3 strips horizontally, then fold like we have here. Next print the template out at 50% then trace half the doll onto your folded paper as we have in our example on the print out. Ask a grown-up to help cut out the paper chain, then unfold and you have your paper doll garland!
You could copy the illustration onto each doll or draw the faces of important women in your life onto each doll.
