With Star Wars coming out with new movies and shows, we thought it was time to make Princess Leia paper dolls. Adorable, but fierce, Princess Leia is always needed when fighting the Dark Side.
Princess Leia Paper Doll
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we have spent the last couple of weeks making several different Star Wars and Princess toilet paper roll kids crafts. Being creative and using your imagination is the best part of being a kid–and, frankly, watching my kiddo work through building these is one of the best parts of being a mom.
So, when the kiddo decided to make the Disney Princess that’s the leading lady of Star Wars…well, I wasn’t about to say “no”. If you’re ready to make the galaxy’s favorite Princess in paper form, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Toilet Paper Roll Kids Craft
- No Princess is complete without a rouge to make her comedic lines fun! So make a cute paper roll Han Solo to go with the General.
- Creating Princess Leia helps girls feel more included and gives them a great role model. And the fact that she’s later a General shows them that they too can be powerful and in charge–while also having epic hair.
- Change up her face to portray different moods to act out. Go ahead, you know you want to wipe off that cute smile and make her have that exasperated smirk she always shoots Han. You know you want to.
How Do I Make this Princess Leia Paper Doll?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- Toilet paper roll
- Colored craft papers
- Craft glue
- Sharpie or marker
- Templates (2, one with color and one black and white for coloring):
- Select colored craft papers for the Princess Leia paper doll patterns. Trace the patterns on the selected craft papers and cut them out nicely.
- Cut a slit along the line inside the hair pattern.
- Slide the head part of the body base pattern through the slit from the bottom side of the hair pattern. Apply glue to fix the head part with the hair.
- Use a marker or sharpie to draw the eyes, nose and mouth of the Princess Leia paper doll.
- Grab an empty toilet paper roll and cover the roll with the square paper. Grab the other long strip and wrap it around the roll on the middle part.
- Attach the head of the Princess Leia paper doll on the top side of the roll to complete the craft.
