Her wedding colors were coral and gray, and I randomly had a plain coral gift bag in my collection of packing materials...perfect!
Here's what else I got:
4.5" x 6.5" decorative paper
White tissue paper
First I cut out the top form of the dress and glued it on the decorative paper.
I cut out about 1x1 inch square pieces of tissue paper, crinkled them, folded them almost in half, and then created another fold in the middle.
Then I started gluing the pieces in lines and then layering the lines of tissue paper to make the skirt of the dress.
Once I got the skirt how I wanted it, I glued some silver ribbon to create a belt.
Then I glued the background paper to the bag, and...
I have a nice gift bag with a wedding dress embellishment on it! This embellishment would also be great for a wedding scrapbook, since that's probably not going to end up in the trash like this bag probably will...it was fun to make anyway!
Have a good one!
