Orange Butterfly Witch ATC - Articulated Paper Doll

This Butterfly Witch project was created from one of the colorized images I posted the other day. The doll is an assemblage of images I printed and the background ATC was stamped on transparency film and then backed with a fun iridescent foiled paper.  The rubber stamp image is of a Gothic castle window and is by Lost Coast Designs.

Orange Butterfly Witch ATC
There are brads at her legs, arms and head that allows 
her to swivel open or closed for storage.

This is what she looks like in the closed position.
I chose not to swivel her head in the down position 
so she did not look too strange in the picture.

I was not sure what witch hat I wanted so I printed a few choices 
along with all the parts I would need to create the ATC sized doll.
(I also printed some reverse images to give me a bit of variety for the assembly process.)

This is what my printed sheet looked like after I added and sized all my elements for the project.  
The page had enough images to make 2 dolls or to have spare parts just in case.  

These are the individual elements I used to create the doll

 These are the other Witch Hats I did not use this time.

 Ruffled Witch Hat #2

These Two fun Witch Hats were part of a paper doll from 1912

 This is what the 1912 Halloween paper doll set with the hats looks like.
