So for this project, I was inspired by one of my friends art projects. In art we had to take something and turn it into something new. So my friend took all painted canvases and turned it into a dress. I loved how it look and I decided that I wanted to do something like that. So when this challenge came up, I knew what I would do.

For the dress I took an old book that was lying around my house and made the top part of the dress from the pages. I used hot glue to glue it together. After I finished the top and it looked how I wanted it to, I took some old magazines and made the skirt part of the dress. I folded and glued on the magazine pages till it looked good. To finish it off added some ribbon around the waist and added a flower made from magazine pages to the back.

Here are some pictures of the finished project.

It looks great. Is it 'only' for show, or can you wear it?

Right now it is just for show. I am still trying to figure out how to make it wearable.
