Preparation: Print the template out and cut out the dolls and the clothes. Use the clothes to trace on the papers that you choose. Create a small folder by folding up the bottom and stapling it.

Make the sticker glue by combining 1 tbsp gelatin powder and 2 tbsp hot tap water. You may need to play with the recipe to get it just right. Just re-moisten it if it is starts to get chunky.

Once the clothes are cut out, use a paintbrush to paint on the gelatin sticker “glue”. Let it all dry sticker side up for a few hours. When ready, lick the back on the clothes and stick them on the paper dolls.

Decorate the dolls with a face, hair and shoes.

Store in the folder and bring it along on your next outing.
