• Try folding a piece into double thickness to get a thicker and stronger 'fabric'
• Fold foil into long strips to make straps, headbands or bracelets. These can be fixed onto the doll just by twisting the ends together

Fold rectangles of foil to get strong straps


• Pleat a long rectangle of foil into a concertina to make a skirt. Wrap around the doll and squeeze the foil at the waist. Wrap a foil belt around and twist the ends to secure.
