Colour and Cut out Hair

  2. Colour a sheet of A4 paper with black FLIPTEZ and lightly spray with hair spray.(Or use any black paper you may have.)

  2. Place these onto the prepared Japanese designs or wallpapers chosen from google images.
  3. Cut out kimonos.
  4. Cut out hair decorations.(We just folded the paper in half and cut freehand to get unusual effects.)
  5. For kimonos which have a plain piece of fabric at the bottom or a plain v insert at the top, use FLIPTEZ to colour a plain piece of paper to make the fabric. Cut out and put together with main pieces.
Assemble Dolls

  1. It is easier if you start by placing the hair at the top of your paper and glue.
  2. Take the strip of paper which best matches your kimono and cut out sash.
  3. Glue into place.
  4. If the kimono has the v insert, cut and glue it in place. (We actually cut a little square which easily fitted under the kimono and we didn't have to bother trying to match in a triangle).
  5. Now place the appropriate kimono under the hair and glue in place.
  6.  The area for the face will become obvious
  7. Using red pencil for the lips, black for the eyes and peach for the cheeks, colour face.(You may prefer to make up all the dolls and do the faces and feet as well as the hair decorations last).
  8. Just use black pencil for the sandal.
  9. Glur hair decorations in place.
  10. Repeat this process for all 17 dolls.
