How to Make Your King Tut Paper Doll
Download the pdf file onto card stock or regular paper and glue the paper onto cardboard or construction paper to make it sturdy. The pdf file may be printed with a front and back side. If you do not have a double sided printer, print the front side only.
Next, chose which of the two versions of the figure you would like to make. One is already colored so you cut out all of the paper doll body pieces. The other version allows your child to color the doll before cutting out the pieces. Then punch a hole at each joint with a small 1/8″ hole punch. Finally, use mini brads to assemble the figure and make it move! A letter key is on the back of the doll body pieces to make it easy to assemble.
