Paper Dresses



One of the calls for artwork for Somerset Life is creating something out of waxed paper. I pulled a roll from my kitchen cupboard and put it on my table. After a few days of thinking I pulled out my big box of ephemera and came up with these sweet little dresses. The one above is my favorite.



I can tell you for sure that I never would have thought to use wax paper for anything but I'm so happy with the way they came out. The wax paper went through my sewing machine like a breeze too.



I'm also crazy about the little capsules by Tim Holtz recently. I've had them since they came out but I used them for this project for the first time.



Which one is your favorite?

The dresses are adorable! I don't think I've ever seen brown wax paper...where do you buy it?

Hi Maryl!

My friend Laura gave me some brown wax paper sandwich bags from Whole Foods. What I didn't say in my post is that I started with the regular white/sheer paper on a roll but immediately thought of the brown bags and opted for those instead.

I think they're all great and now you've inspired me to submit something too for this challenge! I'm sure it won't be as great as yours - but I'm going to go for it.
