Step 1: Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge
Step 2: Body Pieces
- Select the Fit To Page button
- Using 12' x 12" flesh colored cardstock, cut one <body>
- Using a separate 12" x 12" piece of cardstock for the back, select Blackout and cut one body
Step 3: Firefighter Hair and Helmet
Select Real Dial Size (use this for all steps)
Load whatever color of cardstock you want, then cut as follows:
Helmet: Select Headwear, Shift, size = 3 1/2"
Hair: Select Headwear, size = 2 3/4"
For the Helmet opening, I traced around the opening onto a piece of yellow glitter cardstock (backside) and cut it out a little larger and glued it to the back of the helmet.
Step 4: Firefighter Front and Back Shirt Pieces
Load the desired cardstock colors and cut as follows:
Front Shirt (I chose the tabbed shirt option): Select Tabs, Shift, size = 5 1/2"
Back Shirt: Select Blackout, Shift, size = 4 1/4"
Step 5: Firefighter Pants and Boots
Load the desired colored cardstock then:
Pants: Select Tab, Size = 4"
Boots: Select Accessories 1, Size = 2 1/4" (don't select the Shift as noted in the picture)
Note: I cut off the little tab on the side of the pants...no need for it.
Step 6: Assemble Pieces
Body pieces: Line up and trace around the eye openings and color them in larger than the trace lines. Line up again and glue together.
Attach Hair to Helmet, then attach to head.
Attach Boots to body
Attach Pants to body (over boots)
Attach Shirt Back to Shirt Front, then attach to body (over pants)
Step 7: Finishing Details
Using colored pencils (markers might bleed) trace over all the cut lines on the Face, Shirt, Pants and Boots.
I also gave my firefighter rosy cheeks for some added color.
If you want to finish the back, trace the piece onto a large piece of cardboard, cut just inside the trace lines and glue to the back.
