Make your own Enchanted Doll-in paper!

Remember when I said that three birthday contestants guessed my current projects? The first one was a battered doll, and this is the second one: a jointed paper doll by Cynthia. Actually, a last year’s contestant has also submitted a jointed paper doll, but the idea of converting the photos of my dolls into paper dolls didn’t occur to me until a few months ago.

At first I wanted to do it just as a distraction, for fun, but then I realized that some Enchanted Doll fans may really enjoy making and playing with them too. This was confirmed by the positive response to the contest entry. So, I designed them with simple assembly in mind, and now they are available for sale.

For the moment there are 4 designs: Cinderella, Sapphire, Echo and Imperial Concubine. They are printed on a 8.5″ x 11″ (21.5cm x 28cm) sturdy card stock along with easy assembly instructions. All you have to do is cut them out and join the dots with supplied brads. A laminated version is available too, which I personally really prefer, because it protects the dolls from finger oil and makes them more durable and completely scratch-resistant.

Un-laminated, $8.50 CND each. Sapphire is $10.50 CND

Or, $29.50 CND for a pack of all four dolls.

Laminated version is $12.50 CND each. Sapphire is $14.50 CND

Or, $45.50 CND for a pack of all four laminated dolls.

I took some snap shots of the assembled dolls. Sorry if they are a bit blurry. I’m sick right now and my hands aren’t steady.

Sweet little Echo with her little feet.



And Imperial Concubine in her royal splendor.


Better pictures coming soon, but the dolls are available now. Just email me at with a subject line of Paper Dolls.


You may or may not know this, but I started my doll-making career with jointed paper dolls when I was a little girl. I used to draw them by hand, assemble them with wires and sell them to my classmates for pocket change. I was a 10 year old entrepreneur. So, making these paper dolls was kind of a nostalgic blast from the past. It reminded me of where I came from.

    egads, these are too cute! I am utterly in love with Sapphire, because I imagine I’d have fun making little paper outfits to dress her with. Hehe. But oooooh Cinderella is a pretty close second. One of my fave costumed dolls.

    Oh wow, another ED product I can afford! Hm, I may just get all four. This reminds me of the jointed character I made last year, I did a stop motion with it… and there’s another great idea! ;p

    Looking forward to seeing the third entry that guessed your idea.

    Just wonderful to have a little paper version of your wonderful art. I really love the laminated version of Sapphire. This reminds me of when I was a child and had many paper dolls to play with. They were cheaper then regular dolls and it was something that you can have many of without breaking the bank.

  20. Astera says:

    A dream come true! Now the magic of the ED is available to everybody! My very favorite is definitely Sapphire: I love how you articulated her hair! The three quarter view looks great too! :)

  21. Silvana says:

    Amazing idea! I hope you better now!

  22. Annina says:

    it’s genius that you went back to your doll making roots, and they are so well executed, i love them. i think i would almost have the dilemma of not wanting to cut out the doll, to keep the page as it is for its own beauty, so i may have to order two of each. and i can’t decide which one is my favourite, i love them all!

    last year in the ED forum’s secret santa mine was Astera (Maura) and her gift to me was a banshee paper doll similar to the edie one she sent you, so very beautiful, here is a pic:

    and here are all the pics of this amazing doll:

    now she will have new friends, as soon as i can decide on my favourites! ♥
