The following diagram illustrates how to fold an Oriental paper doll head step-by-step with a single sheet of paper with contrasting sides. Use gold foil paper for an angel. Use shiny black gift wrap paper which is white on the flip side for a paper doll head with the slick pomade look. If you cannot easily find paper which is white or beige on one side and black, gold or your choice of hair color on the other side, use two same sized square sheets of diferent color paper to get the hair and skin color of your choice.
