Step 1: Taking A Red Craft Paper
The first step is to take a piece of red coloured craft paper and fold it in half to make a perfect middle line.
Step 2: Folding The Red Craft Paper Alternatively
Now, fold the red coloured craft paper alternatively. This step is exactly the same as how you make a simple Chinese fan.
Step 3: Making Red Craft Paper Into a Fan
Keep repeating the folding technique from the above step on a red-coloured craft paper. In the end, you will get a Chinese fan-like shape, which we used to make in our childhood.
Step 4: Putiong The Red Fan In Between The Yellow Fan
Firstly, with the help of the yellow coloured craft paper make a similar Chinese fan as above by repeating the same steps. Now, put the red-coloured fan in between the yellow-coloured fan as shown in the picture. Remember to take the yellow coloured craft paper a little smaller in size than red coloured craft paper.
Step 5: Tying An Elastic Rubber Band Over The Fans
Now, with the help of an elastic rubber band, tie the upper part of the fans which are placed inside of each other. Tie the elastic rubber band on the fan in such a way that both fans get tied as shown in the picture.
Step 6: Spreading The Fans After Tying The Rubber Band
After tying the elastic rubber band, spread out the red coloured craft paper and yellow coloured craft paper from the bottom of the craft paper as shown.
Step 7: Making A Face And Hair With Cream And Black Craft Paper
Now, with the help of black coloured craft paper and cream-coloured craft paper make the face of the doll as shown. Remember to cut the outlines very properly and it should not look messy. After making the face, stick the hair on the face as shown in the picture with the help of glue.
Step 8: Making Face Features With The Help Of Markers/sketch pens
With the use of markers/sketch pens make face features of the doll. Take a black marker/sketch pen and make the eyes of the doll. Now, take a red marker/sketch pen and make the nose and smile of the doll. Then, take a pink marker/sketch pen and make a blush of the doll.
Step 9: Sticking The Doll Face On The Fans With Glue
Now, with the help of glue, stick the face of the doll on the upper part of the tied red coloured craft paper and yellow coloured craft paper as shown.
Step 10: Making A Bowtie With Yellow Craft Paper
To make your doll look more adorable, make a small bowtie for the doll with the help of yellow coloured craft paper. After making the bowtie, stick it on the red coloured craft paper with the help of glue just below the face of the doll
Step 11: Making Legs Of The Doll
Now, to make the legs of the doll, use cream-coloured craft paper. After making, stick the legs under the red coloured craft paper with the help of glue. Then, to make the shoes of the doll, use a red marker/sketch pen and draw a semicircle on the bottom of the cream-coloured legs and fill it with a red marker/sketch pen as shown in the picture.

Tada! Your cutest doll is finally ready so you can play with it. This craft can even be used for decor purposes. I really love how the doll has turned out.
