It’s wedding season and so we are sharing lots of lovely DIY wedding decorations to keep your special day as unique as you are! These mini paper dress decorations are elegant and beautiful and can be used for anything from cake toppers to garlands to simple centerpieces. We made our little paper dresses using a combination of text weight paper (the mint and the blush) and polka dot paper which is a little closer to cardstock. Either way, as long as the paper you choose is no lighter than text weight, your DIY wedding decorations will stand beautifully all day long.
This is a very simple DIY whether you have a cutting machine or not. Download the SVG file, then score and cut on your machine if you have one. If not, simply print the pattern onto your chosen paper (the score lines will be marked so print onto the reverse side). Cut with scissors or a craft knife and assemble using our step by step tutorial below. We used a glue dot roller to assemble our mini paper dresses, but you could also use a hot glue gun. Either way, these are so easy to use and are mess-free! If you want to turn these paper dresses into a pretty garland for your wedding decor, simply glue a length of ribbon along the backs of the dresses – so simple.
