"Waiting On" Wednesday 99

The Black Apple's Paper Doll Primer by Emily Martin

Join the creator of The Black Apple, Emily Martin, on a trip through her magical world of paper dolls, imaginary places, and clever craft projects.

Inside this book you’ll find 21 sweet, mysterious characters with clothes and accessories all their own—from a busy beekeeper’s daughter to a bird-loving librarian. You’ll also find 16 dolls ready to be designed and brought to life by you! Emily will show you how to draw, paint, and personalize your way to a little paper replica of anyone you’d like.

With basic art supplies and the instructions in the book, you’ll also learn to:

• Make a custom wedding invitation or holiday card
• Color, cut, paste, and frame a unique family portrait
• Design your own paper clothes, shoes, glasses, and the like
• Cut and fold an armoire for doll-sized clothes
• Build a paper theater using one of the TK illustrated backdrops
• Direct a stop-motion film with jointed paper doll actors
And so much more!

So sharpen your scissors and get ready for a unique and wonderful adventure.

"Waiting On" Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!


  1. Oh my gosh, that's like a trip down memory lane! I loved paper dolls as a child. When my mom would get McCall's magazine, my sister and I would fight over who got that month's Betsy McCall paper doll. That book looks adorable!

  2. Oh great that is definitely something to wait for!
