I LOVED the movie Cinderella. I had been planning on working on a Cinderella party for the blog ever since we saw it opening weekend. I am finally able to work on it now that my daughter is starting to feel better, and our schedule is getting a little lighter. One of the first projects I wanted to share our my Cinderella Party Bags.
I started to this project with a gift bag from the dollar store and a piece of scrapbook paper as close to Cinderella's gown as I could find. I cut out a basic dress shape from the cardstock.
I knew I wanted to add some tulle to the gown, so I went through what I had on hand to find which color matched the best. I ended up going with the long piece wrapped in white paper on the left. It has a little bit of shimmer to it, and matched the paper perfectly.
I wanted to add several layers of tulle but not make it too bulky and hard to work with. I ended up using four layers and secured it on the back side of the gown with tape.
It was a little harder to add the tulle to the top of the bodice. I applied several layers and secured it with a scrapbooking tape runner. In the movie there were several butterflies on this part of the dress. I would love to add some, but I have not found any that small yet. I did add a small stick on jewel to give the dress some bling.
I felt the bag needed something else. I asked my daughter, and of course she said, add more jewels. A princess like Cinderella has to have jewels. I also had some matching tissue paper on hand that is perfect for gift giving.
