How to make American Girl Doll School Folders

We just recently did our back to school supply shopping and picking out the folders was the best part. So many great characters, themes, designs and movies to choose from! Choosing which folders to get probably took longer than picking out clothes! We had to make some cute folders for our dolls so they didn’t feel left out. What designs do your dolls like?

Materials Needed:


  • If you don’t have a color printer, just use the template and trace it on colored card stock.
  • Card stock is perfect for the folders, but if you want to be even more authentic, use glossy photo paper! It will give you the shiny look a real folder has.

Watch and tell us what other items are on your dolls back to school list!

    As always, thank you for these crafts! American Girl Ideas has given my daughter and I so many opportunities to spend priceless time together. We would love any more science-related school crafts, and of course, anything Olympic-related during the Rio Games!

    Another thought too, if you don’t have glossy paper, you could always laminate with either packing tape or laminating sheets before cutting them out. Cute idea!
