I found some pretty German scraps sheets from the 1950s with little girls in flower gowns. They just cried to become a paper doll, so I picked little Florence of the Fifties from my own paper doll designs, and modified the flower dresses and matching hats, to fit her. Then I picked out some flowers also from German scrap to trim the pages and arranged each gown & flower over a pretty border, designed the two covers, and made a lovely 6 page, two cover book, with one doll. The gowns are: Forget-Me-Not, Tulip, Crysanthemum, Pink Rose, Yellow Rose, and Carnation. Blossom seemed a rather appropriate name for this doll.
Our finished stapled book size is 8.5"x11". There is no die-cutting or perforating; you need to cut these paper dolls and clothes yourself. Printing is permanent laser and archival. Covers and doll pages are on 80# coverstock, and costumes are on 32#. All nice satin finished, smooth and easy to cut. Comes in crystal clear Mylar seal-top bag.
Our printing equipment is a professional Canon 3380 Color ImageRunner. We use the very best archival laser papers we can buy for a lasting, beautiful product.
