Paper may be the most basic scrapbook supply but it’s also the most versatile. I crafted this skirt from patterned paper to put my personal twist on a Parisian-style dress form I received as a Christmas gift. It’s so easy!
What You’ll Need:
Cut strips of patterned paper in varying sizes and put aside in piles. Cut a length of ribbon that measures the circumference of the dress form “waist” plus a little extra to tie a bow. Lay the ribbon flat. Starting with the wider pieces of paper, attach strips to the ribbon using the glue gun. Create 2-3 layers of paper across the ribbon to fill in all gaps when the skirt is wrapped around the form.
Repeat these steps–cutting a length of ribbon that fits a lower section of the form–to create a layered look as shown in the photo below.
