If you do a Ritz Cracker box dress, you HAVE to take some leftover ritz crackers, preserve them with some sort of acrylic spray or poly, and then put them on the dress. it would be amazing, dangling off like coins or something.

some ideas? mylar birthday balloons (for the shiny silver and the pretty colors), receipts (they keep making them longer and longer, they'd make some sort of excellent fringe/flapper style skirt), paper money (not reusable but definitely fun!), packing peanuts (string them together like the popcorn and cranberry stuff people used to put on christmas trees)....

the possibilities? endless.

P.s. i have to agree, if my legs looked like yours did in a dress, i think i'd give up on wearing pants.






how did u know lol  Grin

I had a dream that I was helping you make a ritz cracker box corset. I either need to stop reading craftster before I go to bed or not eat sloppy joes before I fall asleep. Smiley

lol thank you so much, im very touched that u would dream of me ***blush***
im sure with your help my corset was amazing to say the least

Way cool dress...

What about:
Soda cans
toilet paper tubes or paper towel tubes
Soda can tabs?  I've seen some post where people have made other things...wow, take a lot of soda tabs.
plastic from bottles.  Could be cut to specific shape.
Old towels
dried flowers.
carpet squares? Like the kind stores have for examples of carpet.  The stores sometimes will give them to teachers so kids can sit on the floor.  I had a teacher once that was obsessed with carpet squares...can you imagine the jokes.

Just a couple of ideas that popped into my head.




I GET IT NOW BUT THAT NEARLY PUT ME OVER THE EDGE!!!


IM THINKING  STYROFOAM,,,LIKE CUPS AND PLATES BUT ITS SO WEAK TO WEAR & PERFORM IN

ok, you'll have to explain why 'old towels' is amusing.  I am a mid-west stay at home mom and I don't get to come out and play very much...give me a clue.  And you can all laugh at me that's ok...  I have an open mind about pretty much everything and that is what counts right???  Oh and if it was somehow offensive I certainly didn't mean that.

in my mind i was old paper towels, liek used and that would be disgusting :x  i am from the midwest 2!!

i wasnt offended or anything it was just the first place my mind went becuase i was thinking of things that are ment to be thrown away, and i assume you were talking about like dish rags and beachtowels

I APSOLUTELY LOVE THE MODGE-PODGE ODDS AND ENDS AND EVERYTHING INCLUDING THE KITCHENSINK FEEL THAT YOUR VESTS SERVE. THEY ARE LIKE LIVING CREATURES THAT CRAWELED OUT OF YOUR CRAFT BOX

holy rad!
My vote: Coffee Filters. You can sew them and dye them and they're al ruffly and cool. Youd have to sew them to some kind of fabric tho so they dont rip away.
[/glow]


READ MY MIND! THAT IS HOW I PLANNED ON DOING THE FILTERS, WHICH I HAVE BEEN CONJOURING FOR QUITE SOMETIME! COFFEFILTERS AND CUPCAKE PAPERS.

.

AS FOR THE TEA DRESS MANDY HELLO I THINK THAT TEABAGS COULD BE A VERY CUTE FRINGE...  Wink I WILL BE SURE TO POST UP PIX IF I EVER CREATE SUCH A DRESS... I THINK I WILL SEW THROUGH THE TAG AND LET THEM DANGLE FROM THE STRINGS... Grin
