paper dresses, purses, and shoes

On Saturday we had a bridal shower for my daughter, Kayla.  I still can’t believe my girls are all grown up!  For her shower we went with a girly theme.  I made some paper purses and shoes for the table centerpieces and die cut lots of dress boxes for favors.  They were a lot of fun and turned out quite cute, I think!  My Scor-Pal was a life-saver and I used lots and lots of Scor-Tape!

A friend helped me to trace and cut the purses and shoes that were done by hand with patterns or templates.  I went to Michael’s and bought 2- 12×12 paper packs (Recollections- Dreaming In Color) so the projects all coordinated.  The first three purses are a template by Becky Roberts.  The next three were done by making up my own measurements and were inspired by one my friend Tracy made a few years ago.  The last two purses were cut with my Sizzix Bigz Pro Pillow Purse die.  I used two patterns for the shoes… the Slip On Mule is by Stacy Cohen and the other shoe template is by Ellen Hutson.

Here they are… what fun to create and embellish!  Do you have a favorite?

After the purses and shoes were decorated, I started making dress boxes for favors.  These were die cut with the Sizzix Bigz Pro Dress Box die.  I made over 40 and they all turned out a bit different.  Here’s just a few…

Thanks for popping in.  I will share more shower pics soon.  The games were fun too!  😉
