Instructions

  1. Let me show you how to create your dress, keep in mind that this is a child size mannequin that we are using but you can adapt this to a 24" dress firm from Darice.

  2. First, punch out the banners from the Graphic 45 Paper, distress and ink the edges and hand cut petals from the Rinea Foil so you can alternate them. Cover all the pieces with the Glitter Brilliance and let dry.

  3. Start at the bottom of the dress form and layer them, just overlapping a bit, one row at a time. Work your way up the entire bodice making sure your keeping the line straight. Once at the top leave unfinished but even, we will cover all the edges with the flowers.

  4. Once it's covered, cut out a long V shape of paper approximately 8 inches in length. Cut about 8 long strips, 1/4" wide, ink all the edges. Adhere the strips on to the V shaped paper creating a bit of a corset. Then adhere to the dress form. You will now add the dollar store wings that I stripped down to ous frame. Using FabriTac adhere to the back of the mannequin to create "wings."

  5. Once all that is in place. Take 12" x 12" Paper, cut lengthwise in half. Cut 1/8" slits in the paper, then curl each strip around a crochet needle.

  6. Adhere with Fabri Tac to the underside of the bottom row of cut petals to complete the skirt.

  7. Now to jazz it up. Fussy cut images and words out of the Graphic 45 paper, distress, ink and apply a single coat of Glitter Brilliance. Put these pieces aside.

  8. Now paint the wood top and stand bottom with the Glitter Brilliance, let dry.

  9. Once all the painted pieces are dry, adhere the images and words randomly on the front bodice and a few placed around the wings on the back.

  10. And you have an amazing piece of home decor.
