Bernadette Paper Dolls
UPDATE: We made the paper dolls and their accessories a little smaller so that they would better fit their backgrounds. :)
DIRECTIONS for assembly
1) Choose either the inked set or the plain set. Save each image to your computer. Making sure you deselect the option to fit the images to the page, but still choosing full page photo, print all pages on cardstock. Color everything in as you like. :)
2) Cut everything out. The inked version has light gray stripes over everything that needs to be cut away. Also cut along the dotted lines. An Xacto knife would be helpful here. The backgrounds will be sturdiest if you choose not to cut out the striped sections, and simply fold those back (after cutting along the tabs and dotted lines) for additional support.
3) Assemble your backgrounds and scenery according to the picture to the left. You can angle the backgrounds any way that pleases you. Make sure you fold back the top and the bottom sections of the middle panel of the Grotto background. Also, the right panel of the home has two vertical gray lines on both sides of the fireplace. Fold back along the inner gray lines on either side, and then fold out along the outer gray lines on either side. This will make the middle section, with the fireplace, pop out a little bit.
4) Set up your people, dress Bernadette and have fun!
You can even reenact the story of Bernadette as laid out in our webcomic. :)
