Shabby Chic Garland

     I had so much fun playing with the dress form cutting file from Cutting Cafe the other day that it inspired me to try one more project.  It came out even better than I imagined.  I love it when that happens.  It does kind of remind me of a paper doll chain.

    I used three different embossing folders for my dress forms, my two favorites, Dotted Swiss and Elegant Swirls and a new folder that looks like a sewing pattern that I thought would be appropriate for the dress form.  Everything was distressed with some Old Paper distress ink.   Each of the dress forms has a different set of embellishments.

    It was fun choosing the embellishments.  I just opened my white/cream embellishments drawer and went to down, so to speak.  I added white eyelets to the corners of each dress form to give them more body when I threaded the tulle through them.  Between the forms I added a tulle bow and then a pearlized resin earring that I purchased from a dollar jewelry store.  I couldn't just stop there so I added a second garland of pearls draped between each dress form.

     I'm thinking this is going to the sewing instructor at my daughter's high school.  I think it's just the thing for the end of the year.
