After being inspired by our Cootie Catcher, we've been delving into more paper arts projects at home.
We recently learned how to make paper doll chains and have not only become addicted, we've also seen great decorative potential in these little guys and gals. We started out with IKEA's Mala paper -- which is very vibrant -- and from there created girl chains, boy chains. My son decided it would be a great idea to tape them together and hang them in his room. The effect was charming -- and such an inexpensive project, too.
