You don’t have to be from the Scottish Highlands to enjoy this Merida Paper Doll Craft. Unlike Merida you won’t need to summon the strength or focus needed for a bow and arrow to succeed with this craft. You can just have fun!
List of Supplies:
- Colored Craft Papers
- Craft glue
- Black marker pen
Select green, orange, brown, golden, pink and cream colored craft papers for the Merida papercraft doll. Trace the top and the rectangle on green colored paper. Trace the hair patterns on orange colored paper Trace the top half of the body pattern on cream colored paper, trace the 2 round patterns (blush) on pink colored papers, trace the small rectangle on brown and the rest of the patterns on golden colored paper. Cut out the traced patterns nicely.
Cut a slit along the dash lines of the hair pattern.
Insert the top end of the head through the slit of the hair from the bottom side. Apply glue to fix the position of the head with the hair.
Glue the rest of the hair patterns to complete the hair craft.
Grab the top pattern and glue the golden cutouts on the top. Also, glue the golden round cutout on the brown strip.
Create small and even accordion folds along the green rectangle cutout.
Glue the top on the top part of the body base.
