Tutorial: Paper Doll stand

Paper Dolls: make them stand up. Here's a tutorial on making my flat folding stand...

To begin by way of design explanation:

It elevates the figure slightly, provides a practical straight, stable terminal edge and conceals any fixings behind.

I used spray adhesive to fix the printed doll onto card, then cut out on the outlines, reasonably carefully, leaving the base attached. Then I made the stand, fixed it onto this and then glued on the balsa upright support.

Huzzzah. Wasn't that fun?! **By the way, the small circle bracket pieces can fold up behind the main base if one prefers. I just kind of liked to see the two little semi-circles underneath, so it's clear that there's a stand function available.  I leave it with you.
