So what do you get when you combine the Dress Up Framelits with card stock, wooden dowels, tulle, and a heat tool? Would you believe these adorable decorations?
I thought these were so adorable that I gathered the supplies when I got home and made one myself. (Mine is the shorter one on the left.) I found my tulle at our local Hobby Lobby. I thought the color looked like Old Olive.
Here's a close-up of my "girl".
Cindy gave me the instructions on how she made hers, so I basically followed what she told me. I used Crumb Cake card stock and cut out two shapes with the Dress Up Framelits. Then I stamped on it with Crumb Cake ink using an image from Elements of Style (retired). You could use the current Flowering Flourishes or Everything Eleanor. Cindy made a few that she stamped with the Hello, Doily background stamp.
The dress shapes were then hot glued to a wooden dowel (front and back). The tulle was cut into about 6" strips. Each strip was tied with a knot in the middle and then hot glued to the dress in two rows. Then I took my heat tool and slightly melted the tulle, taking my time so as to not melt it too much.
The dresses were then embellished with ribbon (I love the 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon, but the 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon works well too) and a fabric flower or two.
Cindy had used a spool for a stand for her girl, but I found some toy wheels that were flatter and a little less prone to tip, so I used those on mine. Both work equally well.
I love my "girls" - and I hope you've enjoyed meeting them too! Until next time...
