You may laminate the pages before cutting them out to strengthen them. We label the back of each paper doll with a letter key for easy identification and assembly. Cut out the pieces. Use a 1/8" round hole punch to form a hole at each joint. Finally, place a mini brad through the joint hole and you have a moving historical character!
