Help us celebrate Women’s History Month by creating DIY Paper Dolls! 

This month is all about empowering women. Here at Paper Source, we are using our Paper Doll Template to honor the women who have contributed to events in history and contemporary society. 

To show our appreciation, we’ve designed an easy-to-follow DIY Paper Doll project that highlights women. Additionally, we’ve provided some sources of inspiration to help you commemorate the importance of this month. So, get your craft supplies together, dig deep into the history of women, and create some handmade, historic heroes in recognition of Women’s History Month.
