This month’s IHP Design Team challenge was to make something inspired by fancy fashion. I found a vintage glittery white dress online and decided to dress up a champagne bottle for a festive occasion. You can see the dress below.
I created a simple pattern first with plain paper, so as not to waste my precious supplies. Once I knew what my goal was, it only took about 15 minutes to get it done. But oh, the days I spent trying to get to that point! As Kate, says, that’s why they call it a challenge!
The glittery white paper is from the Petaloo glitter pad. Kate has a few different assortments in the store. I punched 6 holes down the sides of the “bodice” and ran some white Glimmer Ribbon through it, looping it over the neck of the bottle and tying it in the back. Then I took a piece of burgundy crepe ribbon and wrapped it around from the front to the back and then to the front again, tying it there. Did that make sense? I actually fed the ribbon first through a couple of the holes on the sides to keep it in place, then did the wrapping and tying. Clear as mud, right?
Anyhow, hope you feel a little inspired yourself! Wouldn’t this be a great way to present a bottle of bubbly this New Year’s Eve? If you want to post your own version of a fashion inspired project, make sure you use the keyword “ihp1210” in the SCS or PCP gallery so we can find it.
Now go take a look at what the rest of the design team came up with:
Have a sparkly day!
