Dress Form desk decor- Tutorial

The other day I mentioned making something to go on my mom's birthday package.  I'm excited to show it to you today!  These paper and lace dress forms stand on their own so they can be displayed on your desk or shelf.  Here's what you need-

Dressform template
white cardstock
decorative paper
Martha Stewart giltter
6 inches of 3 inch wide lace
hot glue gun
paper glue
rhinestones (optional)
flower embellishment (optional)
Print and cut the dress form out to use as a template.  You will need to cut 3 out of white cardstock and 1 out of patterned paper.  You will also need a section of bust to glitter, I free cut a sweatheart neckline and cut a section from bust to waist to glitter.
Glue your patterned paper onto one of your plain card stock forms.  Then glue the glittered bust onto your patterned paper.    Cut your lace to 6 inches and hot glue the ends down on the back side of your patterned form.  On the front gather the top of the lace at the waistline and hot glue again.
With your craft glue, glue on the second cardstock form to cover the raw ends of the lace onto the back of the patterned front form.  With the third blank dressform glue only the bust section (as shown above) to the back.  Once dry the back form bends back to create a stand.  If you like you can glue a flower and rhinestone necklace to the front.
Enjoy!
