A Little French Wedding Dress

I want to thank everyone for your ever kind encouragement and sweet comments. Tag Tuesday is a highlight of each week for me. I have so enjoyed planning my tags and also seeing the variety of ideas and styles of all the participants!

For this wedding tag, I cut a dress form out of chipboard and decorative paper using a Tim Holtz die.  After stamping French lettering with a stamp from Oxford Impressions,  I folded cupcake holders to make the skirt, added a little glimmer, and then trimmed out with antique lace scraps, rhinestones, and millinery flowers. 


I staged it with my latest obsession - the paper cup holders and pastry bags from Starbucks! If you want to see how truly smitten (or crazy) I am about these pink papers, there's another project on my blog under "A Little Pink Starbucks Obsession."

I hope you are making it a great week!  Can't wait to look at all your tags.                                                                                                                                              - Laura
