It’s nearly the 4th of July! One of my favorite holidays. In Alaska, where I grew up, the 4th was a big deal. Among our close knit group of friends, there was always a huge bonfire on the 3rd (usually with a theme- one year a t-rex, another year, the iron throne) and at midnight the fireworks would go off, calling in the 4th of July. This might seen an odd choice, but remember, that the sun didn’t set until about 10 pm, so it took a while to get completely dark.
I remember one of our hosts, spraying down their house with water to make sure it was safe from the very high bonfire raging on the beach.
Over the years, I have done a few different 4th of July paper dolls and I wanted to share them here.
Four 4th of July Themed Paper Dolls
Now, I’ve also done a lot of paper dolls which that are not specifically “4th of July” themed, but could be used that way if you wanted too. So, here are some paper dolls with red, white and blue color schemes and one Majorette, because that screams parades to me.
Red White & Blue Paper Dolls
Or, if you would rather, get your paper dolls all dressed up for the holiday, here a few outfit sets that could be wonderfully patriotic. Perhaps the Poppets are going to be in the local parade? Or maybe Ms. Mannequin is planning a barbecue and needs to look fantastic.
Red White & Blue Paper Doll Outfits
There MIGHT be a 4th of July paper doll on the actual 4th. She’s inked, but I don’t know if I’ll get her done. Fingers crossed!
In the mean time, I think there’s enough 4th of July content to keep people busy over the holiday.
(Also, I have been told paper dolls are a great coloring activity to keep kids occupied. I can’t promise it’s possible, but I’ve heard rumors. Sadly, I don’t have any kids around top “test” my work much.)
Lastly, I noticed in Monday’s poll that Mini-Maidens did a last minute surge into the lead which makes me wonder about the voting. Anyway, since I already had my 4th paper doll figured out, I’m reopening the poll, below.
