Halfway Inspiration for Challenge #26 - Paper Dress (No Stamps)

I must admit I am surprised at the number of entries we have already.  Everyone has outdone themselves and so many different styles of paper dresses.  Very inspiring.

The Design Team is keeping the inspiration going with a couple more cards that you may get ideas from.

You can enter our current challenge here to be in the running to win the fantastic prize pack from Sticker Store.

Firstly we have Susan with a Decoupage/3D Paper Tole paper dress using Papermania pack for papers.  Isn't this so elegant.

Cathy has used stickers from Sticker Store and was inspired by fellow DT members Beth and Susan in our original challenge post here. Another dress I would love to wear.

Merry tried her hand at an origami dress using this tutorial by Christy.  

I hope these cards inspire you to try a paper dress.  Be sure to check out all the entries too for more styles of paper dresses.

Challenge #26 - Paper Dress

We want to see how you can turn paper into a dress.  Scrap pages, cards, journal pages, origami etc. are all welcome.

All entries are subject to the Design Teams discretion.

Any form of paper creation will be accepted as long as NO STAMPS (Digital or Rubber) have been used.
You can find our rules here for further information.

This month our sponsor is Sticker Store with a fantastic sticker package offered as a prize.

Sticker Store is located in Adelaide (Australia) but their shoppers are from all over the world. Sticker Store have no shops or showrooms to visit so, buying directly on-line from them helps keep their overheads low and the savings get past on to you. 

I think all the Design Team initially struggled with an idea but have come up with amazing creations.  So it can be done....and I hope these inspire you to have a try at attempting a 'Paper Dress'.

Lauren has created a 7" x 9" mixed media canvas using mists, book pages, texture paste, paint, rub-ons and chipboard.  

Merry was inspired by Pinterest.  The link led to Merry here (DeAnn's blog) to the original post...please check it out.  Merry used papers from here stash and the mini pink cupcakes from her baking stash.  The bodice and body form were cut with scissors.

Sarah made the skirt of her dress out of page flags (from an office supply store) and part of a paper flower.  The sentiment is a sticker.

Susan used stickers and sparkly papers, finished with a sticker sentiment.

Beth used a sticker from Sticker Store on some glitter embossed cardstock.  The silver layers on this gatefold card are embossed. 

JanR used her Silhouette to cut the beautiful dress, Jan also used store bought hello flag, flowers and bling.
