How to Magnetize Your Paper Dolls Tutorial

October 15, 2009

Younger girls (and even the older girls, as well) may enjoy playing with their paper dolls on the fridge — or another magnetic surface — instead of on the table or floor, and not having to worry about keeping the ladies’ dresses on. This works best after laminating the dolls and dresses, as shown in this tutorial.

In this tutorial, we will show you how you can magnetize your paper dolls, using our Daughters of His Story Paper Dolls: Collection Two, featuring Abigail Adams and Sarah Edwards.

What you will need:

• Paper Dolls
• Scissors
• Roll of Magnet


1. Collect your supplies and have a clean, flat area to work on. Before you attach the magnets, we recommend laminating them first.

2. Cut a piece of magnet from the roll long enough to span the back of each dress across the shoulders, just beneath the neckline. Do this for each dress.

3. Once you have the desired width, peel . . .

4. . . . and stick!

5. Do the same for the bottom of the dresses and the back of each dolls’ head. Now you’re ready to stick them all up on any magnetic surface!

Note: We found that the places where we suggest to put the magnets (the back of each dolls’ head, top of dresses and bottom of dresses) are the best places for the magnets to work properly.
