We are total suckers for vintage printable crafts around here! I’m constantly hunting them down in antique stores and at our flea markets. Today we’re sharing a brand new set of patriotic 4th of July paper dolls from the early 1900’s – 1917 to be exact. The Betty Bonnet series of paper dolls appeared in the now-gone Ladies Home Journal magazine for a couple of years. Back then, the magazines were HUGE at nearly 11 x 17 inches. They were full of gorgeous old ads, Edwardian fashion illustrations, and every month, a section for children. If you can find copies of them, they are fascinating and FUN. The Betty Bonnet series was very popular for them, and she still has her fan base today! These printable paper dolls are free for you to print and assemble – enjoy!
