Will paper dolls be scanned?

I have read the description of what will be mailed, and it looks like paper dolls will NOT be. But I was wondering... paper dolls require cutting out and often require firmer cardstock to keep from tearing them.  Will the children have access to scissors and coloring equipment? (I can send already colored paper dolls, but scissors would be imperative to make them work. What about some kind of adhesives to keep their clothes on (or do we need to send templates of ones with "tabs" to fold over)? Please let me know if paper dolls will be scanned and sent, or if cardstock width dolls and clothing can be mailed to the kids. Thanks!

According to the new guidelines, only bookmarks, musical greeting cards, and stickers will NOT be scanned.  Everything else has to be paper that can be scanned, including paper dolls.  They do have scissors and crayons at the project.  I know many people have sent them, my question would be how much time do the kids really have there to work on these projects?  I would assume the kids are kept quite busy.  But I know in the facebook group, many have sent paper dolls.

Hi Melinda! Paper dolls are such a fun, easy gift to send to our girls, aren't they? Through the new letter system, they will be scanned and printed on a high quality paper. It won't be as durable and thick as cardstock. You can absolutely send the ones with tabs and those without. The project does have supplies including tape, scissors, and coloring utensils for the children to use :). Debbie, the children will have some time at the projects to do little crafts like these. Some children may also take them home to finish cutting them out if they have scissors at home.
