Technique Tuesday – Folded Doily Card

I saw this doily dress idea posted on Pinterest from this blog: http://paperpaws.blogspot.com/2012/05/doily-dress-folds-tutorial.html and I decided I would adapt to suit our Stampin’ Up needs!  And, I love the result!

OK, so on to the instructions!  For each dress you will need 1 1/4 doilies.  This will make sense as you see the instructions.

  1. Fold your Tea Lace Doily almost in half as shown below.IMG_6506
  2. Then fold along the straight edge almost in half again.IMG_6507
  3. At the tip of your triangle, fold down so you get about a 3/4 inch line at the top.  Attach this underneath the dress with your adhesive.
  4. Using another doily, attach 1/4 of a doily to a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Using the Sweetheart Punch, punch out a heart with the lacy part being the top of the heart.IMG_6509
  5. Once punched, trim down the sides of the heart to create your bodice.  Where the sides come down should be about 3/4 inch to match the top of the dress.
  6. Attach your bodice to the back of the dress bottom using your adhesive. Using 1/4 inch cotton ribbon, in this case Blushing Bride, hide your seam by attaching behind your dress.IMG_6511
  7. Add a sash using the same ribbon and attach a rhinestone!  Dress done!IMG_6512
  8. I used the Wink of Stella Clear Brush on top of the dress to give it a nice little sparkle to go with the rhinestones.  Perfect little wedding card!IMG_6515

  1. So funny story you all might enjoy…I’m left-handed and usually see everything backwards. Sometimes it’s challenging for me to replicate visually because of that. Sure enough, when I followed Megan’s easy directions, my dress turned out perfectly…except for the fact that my fold is on the other side do to my left-handedness!
    This was fun and easy…thanks for finding it for us to try
