Dress Framelit Favors

The Senior Center in Monona is having a Fashion Show in May. I was honored to be asked to help design the Table Favors. Of course the first thing I thought of was our cute Dress Framelits Dies.

The Dress Framelit set has 3 basic shapes.
The dress on the right worked best for having a fold at the shoulders.
To cut the dress with the fold in the shoulder I folded the Designer Paper in half and made sure the fold line was inside the cut line of the framelit.

The decorations to the dress were simple:
  • A belt - made of ribbon with a bow
  • A shoulder "corsage" - made with a small punched scallop circle with a rhinestone in the center.
BTW: the small scallop punch is

And here's a ribbon tip:  I measured and cut the short strips for the belt itself and attached them with glue dots. But for the bow I found I needed about a 4" piece to comfortably tie the bow (at least with my fingers), but then the tails were too long and I was wasting a lot of ribbon cutting them down to size.  To avoid the waste I tied the knot while the ribbon was still on the spool and cut the knot off the spool.

The candies were easy to attach.  Just put a little strip of double sticky tape on the inside bottom "hem" of each dress and use the dress like a "tweezers" to pick up the candy. The dress is now directly attached to the sides of the candy and the candy is what lets it stand up. Voila!
