Paper Poppets: Paper Doll Clothing Design and Illustration

Welcome to a wonderful world of whimsical paper dolls, re-imagined with retro fun and cool, modern illustrations. Paper Poppets encourage imaginative play, personal storytelling, and creative design. – Paper Poppets

In the spring of 2016 I started working with Gina Lannen, entrepreneur and founder of Toy Heart, to bring to life her vision for a set of beautiful paper dolls. Smudge Design Co created the charming graphics. The talented illustrator, Anne Keenan Higgins, created the dolls and their world. Gina hired me to design and illustrate the doll’s paper clothing. I hand-drew and painted the outfits in a style to that complements the illustration style of the dolls and book. Click through the gallery above to see more of the clothes.

Paper Poppets Story & Activity Set is a set of two paper dolls, two pets, over 50 press and cut-out fashions and 32 page story and coloring book. Each page of clothing comes with mix-and-match clothes, shoes, fashion accessories and even clothes for the dolls’ pets. See all the paper dolls at Paper Poppets.
