I am super-excited to announce that I will be launching my own crepe paper line with German paper company Werola later this year! We are developing a line of extra fine crepe papers in an on-trend palette, inspired by nature and created specifically for exquisite crafting. I cannot wait to share it with you guys and begin showing you how to create stunning handmade flowers, home decor goods and more with this one-of-a-kind craft material – bring on the crepe paper revival! To celebrate this exciting partnership I got back to my roots by designing and making a new paper dress with crepe!
Long term fans will know that I design and make paper dresses now and then! It’s something that I love to do, it’s definitely challenging but oh-so-satisfying! This growing little blog of mine has taken up all of my creative time in recent years, but for 2016 I made a promise to myself to design another paper dress or two. Embarking on a crepe paper revival with Werola gave me the opportunity to do just that, and I am loving being back in the saddle! Over the course of a weekend, I cut, twisted, stretched and glued glorious crepe papers until my heart was content! After around 20 hours, I had created a full-sized wearable paper dress out of beautiful German crepe paper, and this sneak peek is the end result – more pics and info to follow but if you can’t wait, you can see more on my Facebook page!
No wedding gown is complete without a bridal bouquet and so it was only fitting that I also create a crepe paper flower bouquet to compliment this pretty dress. Made in a selection of soft yellow, blush pink and metallic copper this crepe paper flower bouquet can be made at home with a little patience, a touch of creativity and our printable flower pattern below!
