Let’s just say I may have overdone it when purchasing tulle for Ivy’s bed skirt. I purchased close to 20 yards! In my defense, I had no earthly idea how much I’d use and it was only a little over $1/yard. So, when thinking about Valentine Cards for Ivy’s kindergarten class, my first thought was to try to make a dent in that large pile of left over pink tulle. My hubby, a crafty guy himself, was recruited to draw the dress form and he loved every second of me hanging over his shoulder shouting “no, not like that!” and “move that wire over a little bit!”
I printed to fit my Valentine on 4 X 6 inch card stock and added a little TuTu to the dress form for a cute 3D effect. I cut the pieces of tulle 6 inches long by 3 inches wide and holding two pieces together, I folded them in half lengthwise, into a 3″ x 6″ piece, gathered the raw edge on the sewing machine and hot glued the waist ribbon over the gathers and then to the card. Simple, inexpensive and best of all, Ivy loves them!
