Spanish Matador Paper Doll
© by Leanne Guenther
This is a simple cut and paste paper craft that can be done
"just for fun" or for a Spain theme. In Spain, a matador or bull fighter is known as a Torero.
Bull fighting is practiced in a number of countries influenced by Spanish culture including Portugal, Mexico and Peru. Because of the animal rights issues surrounding bull fighting,
professional matadors are less common than they once were, but the image of a matador waving his red cape is still one commonly associated with Spain and its traditions.

glue all the pieces onto the full sheet of template 1. It's up
- Glue the matador together in the following order:
- jacket (known as a bolero)
