Ah yes, those school days, you can, you know, sit in class and eat glue or you can do something even better. My name is Robert Segundo and I'm going to teach you today how to make paper dolls. We're going start off with our regular piece of paper. What we're going to do is we're going to fold our paper like so. We're going to try to fold it all in one direction. What I mean by that is, kind of accordian style, like so. it's always better if you have a little bit more of paper. Here we go, we'll just do that little guy like that. Now, since your accordian style here you have all of these lines are connecting, so you want to remember these and also keep these connecting ones here. So to do that, we're going to make, make some ladies, we'll cut up like so. And these are going your legs. We'll cut across, like so. Now we don't want to cut this to a point or cut this off, you want to use this point as a hinge, so, I'll cut back up like so and just cut out. We're going to cut up our arm right here. Now what we're going to do is we're going to go ahead and shape the head something like that. Here we go. Just pull your paper dolls apart, and of course she's got a funky fide head. Again, come this back again, just do it like this. There she go, now she doesn't look hydrocephalic. Alright. There you go, your paper dolls and then afterwards you can eat your glue. My name is Robert Segundo and enjoy your paper dolls.
