Boning tool for making the creases and scoring board (We used Martha Stewart's kit – comes with a scoring board and a boning tool.)

The template we used is designed to work with the standard 8.5 x 11 sized paper that fits in our printer. (tip: please check to make sure your cardstock will work with your printer. If you are using a very heavy cardstock that can't be fed through your printer, print the template on basic white paper or cardstock and trace it onto your final paper.) 2.

Make Magnetic Paper Dolls For The Fridge

These are already scored for you on the Paperdolls Cricut cartridge. I used the "Everyday Paper Dolls" and "Paper Dolls Dress Up" cartridges. I also make little ones to give to my doctors and nurses on a popsicle stick and one for just about anyone I come across. It is easy to make them look like people and they love it! My doctor even took her "nurse" paper doll on vacation with her and took pictures of the nurse in the sand at the beach at the tiki bar, etc ... too cute.. Anyways, I cut them out 8 inches then I laminate them to protect them - small children like to tear up paper dolls. Then I just cut the clothes out on the Cricut also and laminate them and put velcro on them so the dolls can change clothes.
