Step by step assembly instructions for your Paper Ariel Doll (or Ariel Christmas Decoration)
Perparing Ariel Printable
Print out your printable and get hold of some pink paper.
ROUGHLY cut out the two Ariel – keep them CONNECTED, for easier gluing.
Fold the paper so that the two Ariel are back to back. Hold against the light to align perfectly. Make a neat crease.
Then open the crease.
Add glue and the thread for hanging.
Glue the two sides together as neatly as possible.
Cut out the Ariel outline as neatly as possible (do not accidentally cut the hanging thread off).
Cut out your circle for tracing.
Making your paper bauble for Ariel’s Dress
Using your circle template, cut out 8 pink circles.
Fold the circles in half.
Add glue to one half of one circle and place a second one on top. Glue FOUR circles together.
Get the 5th circle and start a “fresh” set of FOUR circles.
Shaping your paper bauble to Ariel’s Dress
Take one set of 4 half circles and place on top of your Ariel paper doll.
Outline the top curve of her dress with a pencil. Trim.
Trim the second set of 4 half circles in the same way.
Glue down a set of 4 circles in each side of the Ariel Ornament.
Trime the borrom of all the circles to align with Ariel’s skirt.
