Paper dress

The new Bo Bunny Double Dot paper line has been displayed in a different way in our store today as Emily’s paper dress idea was completed on the gorgeous wire bodice given to me as a Christmas gift by Sharon. Thanks Sharon!
She chose the Tim Holtz rosette die to cut the various colours into rosettes to decorate and the new Cricut machine cut the swirls (they are from the new cartridge that is pre-installed in the newest version of Cricut)
Gorgeous huh?


And here is a closer image. There is also another sheet of paper where we have cut the words out, we love the quote from the book “The Help” You is kind. You is Smart. You is Important.

It seemed only perfect to add this and the other words and banners cut from the paper too…. now I can’t think of the name of that paper now, but it’ll come to me.We have also used the Martha Stewart Border punch and the butterfly punch. Cute huh? We have used plenty of hot glue and the paper ribbon bow is one that Emily drew for her last kids class. It’s very simple, and she has a template at the store, just ask when you are in next if you’d like to trace it off to make your own.


Thanks for looking, I hope you like!

  4. You’ve done a great job Em. Love it! Just the kind of thing I envisionaged except maybe in brighter colours than I would of picked (although I do own most of those papers…lol)…I’m not as adventurous as you with colour… but just gorgeous!
