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?

  1. This is beautiful and really simple.. thanks for the DIY tutorial.. will surely try this.. i do have a knack for creating my own bookmark, this one's perfect.. But, where do I buy these decorative papers?

  2. Wow – this tutorial rocks. I love the Japanese Kimono dolls too and had seen a wonderful tutorial once online- havent been able to find it again; yeah didnt save it then. This one comes pretty close to it – awesome!
