a peek at a book : The Black Apple's Paper Doll Primer

I've been a fan of Emily's of The Black Apple ever since I saw her whimsical portraits in her etsy shop. She also shares my strange adoration of conjoined twins (more on that later!) When I saw this book by her in my local Paper Source, I flipped! I thought I would give you a peek inside what a gorgeous world Emily has created. The first part of the book introduces characters/dolls from a traveling circus and has different outfits for each. The second part instructs you on how to make paper dolls of your own creation and the third part gives you ideas on what you can do with and to add to your paper doll collection. Enjoy!

Did you play with paper dolls when you were little? I did but I've never made my own and this book has completely inspired me to try it out!
