Default Cricut magnetic Paper Dolls?

How do I make them? I can't seen to find the right magnetic sheets to cut. ALso, if you've made them do you dress the dolls or make magnetic clothes to fit over them? I'm makiing some as christmas gifts and I need help.

Thanks

I don't have a Cricut, so I can't help you with that. BUT I've done plenty of magnetic paper doll sets with my Cuttlebug, so I'll tell you what I used. If it works, great. If not, maybe someone else can chime in (someone who has a Cricut).

I have purchased magnetic sheets from Dollar Tree (about 7x7" square) in the past, but I recently found locker wallpaper magnetic sheets (12x36") at a closeout store for the same price ($1).

As for the actual dolls and clothes ... I usually dress the base doll in underwear. At first I didn't, but every time I opened up the tin, I thought the doll looked naked. Since they're intended for kids, I've begun to glue the underwear directly onto the doll.

Other than that, I make all the clothing as separate magnets. It works best if you cover the entire piece of clothing with magnet (i.e. cut it out with the same shape as the decorative paper you're using for the clothes, then glue them together) since you'll need all the magnetic pull you can get to keep them from getting lost.

I have a sample in my gallery, if that helps at all. (It should be one of the most recent uploads.)

Provo craft makes the magnetic material. It is by the vinyl for the cricut. I read on cricut .com that they cut the clothes out of paper and glue on. One lady cut the clothes out of fabric. She applied a fabric siffener first. I just purchased it so I have not cut it first hand. You do need the deep cut blade though as stated on the box.
