So I am going to "wallpaper" the walls of my childhood Barbie house for my daughter as a gift to her from Santa.

I am struggling with paper choices-probably too many!

Any thoughts?

Find something with small graphics or stripes. I would look at the "B" sides of some patterned paper you may have on hand.

I would check out smaller paper sized like 6x6 or 4.5x6.5 mat stacks as their designs are usually smaller.

My first thought would be the old Chatterbox "room" designs!

My first thought was the Old World DCWV stack. A lot of those papers had an old wall paper look to them. Older MME would also work.

Hey! Where's my theme music?!?

There's a Theresa Collins collection that looks like wallpaper to me.

I can't think of the name of it right now, though.

I have a doll house that is waiting to be papered with a few pages from Graphic 45, A Ladies Diary.

Some of the florals and stripes in that collection are the perfect size for a 1" scale doll house.

you can also go to the paint stores and "buy" their old wall paper books and use the pages to paper the walls.

How about using a 6x6 pad you love? The prints are smaller so they'd be in proportion to the dollhouse size
