It started with the ones I got that my mother made when she was a girl. And she’s a really good cartoonist. Her paper dolls looked liked movie stars. And they have were dressed accordingly. So good looking! Then I got into the collecting period.
I remember the winter holidays at my grandparents. Enjoying quiet afternoons in the sofa with magazines containing paper dolls to cut out. Mostly famous people like Abba members.
The paper doll could be glued to a more solid paper for durability. Even mom was a paper doll in the sixties. Not as herself. I think she was a nurse.
Using my own creative memories from my childhood feels very special to me,
To all of you who remembers and love scrapbooking, to all of you who are at home more now than you wished for right now or have kids that need to be presented to something new to do with the hands.
Let me introduce - Grace, the first of the Bolinder Stockholm Paper Doll collection.
