Tiffany Box

This was a plain box that I decorated for Pammy's Ideas for Scrapbookers! Now who doesnt love tiffany's??? So easy to cover, you have to play with the fonts a bit to get it to look like the original box. I used added white ribbon and pearls.... a cute box for a bridal shower or any gift.

Creating a Dress Mannequin

I have seen so many dress mannequins lately. So instead of buying one I thought I could make my own!

1. These are the supplies you will need:
I used my cricut, but if you don’t have one you could use a template, a punch or hand drawn.
You need two hearts 2.5 inches, one needs to be silhouette, two triangles 2.5 inches, and again one must be a silhouette, a rectangle silhouette 1.5 inches, a table 3 inches long.
Scissors, glue, quilling strips, and embellishments of your choice.
2. Glue the 4 silhouetted pieces together and when dry cut out the middle parts as shown.
3. Then place the quilling strips .25 inches apart under the silhouette dress and when dry add the other heart and triangle pieces underneath. Embellish and you have your own homemade dress mannequin!

Here is an example on a layout!
