Today was my last full day of highschool. I chose to use this afternoon to construct this dress ON my friend. It's made solely out of a half roll of paper towels, and masking tape.






The little clutch is my favorite part. I did my best to make a little ball clasp with tape.  Cheesy

Aaaah i LOVE it!! Paper towel is such a versatile yet underrated medium. Good on you for making a rocking dress so your friend could end the school year in style!  Wink I went to a uniform school, so whenever we thought we could get away with it we tried making our own garbage-bag and masking-tape versions. It really only worked with new teachers because they found it novel. It was, however, entirely inconvenient as garbage bags are quite slippery...

And I also LOVE the clutch. Way to go the extra mile!

Wow! You must have lots of patience (I imagine the paper towel would have easily ripped)... I clicked the "this rocks" button cause it does.

That is adorable!  Papertowels?  How long did it last?  Knowing me, and the way I eat barbecued chicken, it might last 5 minutes.

Rock on, sista!
