Tim Holtz Dressform

Was watching some You Tube videos the other day and came across an interesting use for the Tim Holtz dressform on the Sewing things Bigz die.

So I tried it out.

Cut 2 dress forms with the die, then painted them with antique broze distress paint. Cut one in half and attached each half to either side of the other dress form.

Cut several dress forms from book pages and trimmed off the neck and stand parts to leave just the body form. Distressed the edges with vintage photo then folded in half. Attached them to the inside parts of the dress form then decorated it with lace, paper roses and pearl strings.

The sentiment is a TH one as well.

The base was made from 2 circles of card attached to a tube that I found in the craft room.

Was pleased with this for a first off!
