Japanese Paper Doll Tutorial

I have been in love with Kimono wearing Japanese Paper Dolls ever since I started doing Origami. They look absolutely adorable and can be used as a bookmark, a gift tag or decorate wall frames.

After scrolling through scores of pictures on Pinterest, I was super inspired to make one for myself this weekend. 



Choosing the pattern of the Kimono is probably the toughest part.


Here's a tutorial I made, documenting the steps to make the paper doll.





Pretty Easy, isn't it?

  6. I am not even going to attempt this - unless I'm looking to make a fool of myself, in which case I totally will.

    Is there anything creative that you're not good at, lady? :P
