Magnetic Paper Dolls

The other day I was at the store and I found a set of princess magnetic paper dolls. I thought they were super cute, but they were kinds pricey. So I thought about it for a little but and decided I would make my own. So I went and bought a tin gift card box from the dollar store and some magnetic paper from our local craft store. (I was originally going for some adhesive magnet paper, but this magnetic paper was much cheaper.) Then I just used my cricut and my paper doll cartridge.
Then I cut out a bunch of different outfits, hairstyles, and accessories. (Make sure they fit on your tin box)

Then I layed them all out and then modge podged each piece down onto the magnetic paper.

Then the next day after they were dry I cut them all out and put them in the box. You might need to put some books on top of the pieces after you cut them out to flatten them out. Then let you little princess go wild dressing up her doll!

(Sorry I didn't get a final picture)
