That question takes me back. I used to love my paperdolls, and enjoyed making my own costumes - and dolls eventually.
I loved paperdolls when I was younger. We even made their clothes out of JCPenney catalogs! Amy, I have an award for you on my blog 3/17/2010!
I have to admit I don't use them now, but I used to love making them when I was a kid. Probably if I tried now it would become too all-consuming when I'm meant to be writing.
