Mary Engelbreit Paper Doll Calendars

I had a few people ask about the Mary Engelbreit paper doll calendars, so here are a few pictures........... I just love this animated picture of ME's girls playing paper dolls. (If it's not moving left click on it and it'll come up by itself and it's animation should work then).

The ME paper doll calendar is the hardest for me to find and I'm not sure if she puts one out every year. I Googled for a 2008 paper doll calendar and only found one for 2006. The one here is from 2002 and I bought it--unused at a thrift store for $1 . Anyway this is what they look like---they come with a set of paper dolls (next picture down) and each month has 2 flaps that fold out with doll clothes to cut out for your little paper dolls.

These are the paper dolls & dog--that came with this calendar. They're on a nice heavy cardstock.

And this is what the little flaps look like with their clothes. Aren't they just the cutest!

I've never taken mine apart, because I haven't figured out just what to do with them. I think if they were laminated--but still bendable would be nice and I'd like to figure out a way to display them without any permanent damage.

For more ME paper dolls check out this awesome album I found on Flickr--too cute!

Cathy..hey it's Phyllis Ann..just a thought...i bought some old patst doll ones on etsy...they are on that thin magnetic sheet ...cut you can shange the clothes if they are on a refrigearator or soemthing like that...the tabs aren't there...but you could scan them and print them off on the magnetic sheet to hae them to play with like that....
