Ok - I have a few questions.

1. Where do you mommas purchase your sticky-backed magnetic sheets? The best price I have found so far is Oriental Trading Co. Any better ones out there?

2. I want to put scenes onto a thin sheet of tin for my kids to play on. Any good background scenes or websites that have them?

3. Please share your favorite dolls and patters. Free or otherwise!

4. I have heard that there is a magazine that prints a new doll and clothes each issue on its back cover. I don't know the name however. Does anyone know what magazine this is? I would really appreciate it!

Thanks so much everyone!

I have been wanting to try to make magnetic paper dolls for my DD ever since I saw this: http://www.onepearlbutton.com/2009/12/tutorial-magnetic-paper-dolls.html

 

Here's a link to the Betsy McCall paper dolls she used: http://tpettit.best.vwh.net/dolls/pd_scans/betsy_mccall/p60_2.html

 

I also bought these cute downloadable paper dolls from Wee Wonderfuls: http://www.weewonderfuls.com/store/paper-dolls.html

 

I also found a number of play sets from Wonder Time: http://wondertime.go.com/create-and-play/printables/  I printed and laminated one set and put velcro dots on the back for my DD felt board when she was smaller.

 

Would love to know where to get cheap magnet sheets as I bought a pack at Staples and it was pretty pricey :(

 

Hope this helps! Please post pics if you end up making a set, would love to see the finished product :)

ETA: Just realized this post if from 2009, but would still like to see pics if anyone makes this project. I may even get motivated and finally make a set :)

I made a magnetic horse with different saddles/blankets etc for my oldest for Christmas and a doll set with clothing for my middle. Im debating getting altoid cans, dumping the mints into a baggie and using the tins for the dolls. The girls would love it and they would at least smell good :)
