Dressing Up My Act
These sweet little dresses are made of a napkin skirt with a cardstock top. Danny made the hangers out of 18-gauge wire - he can whip out 50 in less than two hours!
I traced the tops from a sample we found at a gift shop, and then copied it onto colored cardstock. If you'd like the pattern, leave me your e-mail address and I'll send it to you. Then I cut them out (with some help from a very dear friend) and stamped the palm trees on them.
The skirts are made from folded napkins - once you get it figured out, it takes about 30 seconds to fold up. They are square napkins, unfolded and accordion folded in the back.Then the skirts are taped inside the blouses with double stick tape. So pretty! Embellish them with ribbon and you're done!
Our theme this year is faithfulness, so we're using Psalm 92:12-13 as our verse.
The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.
With the palm tree as our theme, I decorated these dresses with a palm tree stamp. Vary the paper and colors for whatever your event and theme.
