Tutorial Thursday: Dress form using Vintage Vogue

Hey, hey!  It's Tutorial Thursday time!  I have the cutest little project to share with you today.  It's a KasierCraft Beyond the Page MDF Dress Form.  It's just he right amount of frilly and girlie.  It would make the perfect gift, if you could part with it.  After the fact, I thought it would also make a cute little Halloween decoration if you did it in blacks and orange!  The possibilities are many!

Dressform (1 of 1)-7 The dress forms come in packs of 2's, fyi. I'm using the one with the cutout body. 

Dressform (1 of 1)-8 To save on Glimmer Mist, I painted it on instead of spraying.  I used Chalkboard GM Grape Ape.

Dressform (1 of 1)-9 I traced the shape of the dress form onto Pink Paislee's Vintage Vogue paper, and cut out.  I applied 1/8" Scor-tape to the back of the dress form, and adhered the cutout to the dress form.

Dressform (1 of 1)-5 For the shirt, I misted a strip of paper to make it pliable an easy to pleat.  I used water in a Mini Mister bottle, but Perfect Pearls Mist would have rocked!  I then pleated the paper in to the shape of a shirt.

Dressform (1 of 1)-4 I decorated with Vintage Vogue Buttons and Miscellany Paper Tags Ephemera, Webster's lace, and Maya Road Ruffle Trim.  I Scor-taped the shirt in place.

Dressform (1 of 1)-3 I cut a set of Sizzix Wings out of cardboard, gave them a little rub of Picket Fence Distress Stain, and Scor-taped them to the back of the dress form.

  2. I just stumbled on your blog and store. I am not a traditional scrapbooker in any sense of the word- I love making mini albums but mostly I do home dec stuff. I am thrilled to find your blog- this is a cute project well done. I’m looking forward to reading your blog in the future.

  3. Love this Melissa, such a cute idea.
    Wanted to check with you about the feed on your site.
    Not sure why but I haven’t received it for over a month. Just happened to come here and see that you have posted.
    I re-joined and used the link at the top of page, it then refreshed. The other links didn’t work on your blog sidebar.
    Just wanted to give you a heads up sweetie
