Japanese Paper Doll Tutorial

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. I bought lots of colorful paper from Daiso, a store in Sydney that sells all the items of Japan. I buy a lot of my art and craft materials from there, including paints  and drawing pens.
Choosing the pattern of the Kimono is probably the toughest part. I just can’t decide on one.
Here’s a tutorial I made, documenting the steps to make the paper doll. It’s very simple and within no time, you a doll would be ready.
