WHOA. AWE. SOME. i wanna go to a party like that too!!!  Cool what were the other clothes there like?

not too exciting actually...my roommate wrapped herself in foil and some more tawdry females covered themselves in saran wrap with various items covering the indecent parts. the guys varied from a newspaper skirt to a backpack to wrapping oneself in bubble paper. overall it was pretty funny to see what people decided to wear.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / coffee filter dress! on: September 21, 2008 01:37:37 PM
So my roommate and I went to a friend's birthday "anything but clothes party," where the "dress code" was to wear things not traditionally clothing focused. up to the challenge, i decided to make a dress out of coffee filters!

Using lots of tape, I made lines of filters and taped the lines in an overlapping fashion to make a big rectangle, plus a few for the "top:"

Since you can't just wrap a rectangle around, I made a bustle to cover up the back side...same idea: I folded the filters into triangles and staggered/taped them together:

I then taped the bustle to the "rectangle," wrapped it around and taped it together on myself & was ready to go out!

It held up surprising well considering it was rainy outside, and it only got crinkled up when I finally sat down...and later cut it off myself to put on regular clothes haha Smiley

My roommates and I are all dressing up as Harry Potter characters. I'm pretty psyched to be Hermione! Smiley

Anyhoo, I will just be wearing a gray skirt & white buttondown, but in true craftster style, I bought us solid color ties from Walmart and used masking tape to make my own striped Hogwarts ties!

Happy Halloween guys!!

Hey, I realize this is posted so long after the topic was originally posted, but I'd love to make this for a friend of mine and was just wondering how you attached the ribbon, mod podge as well, or with hot glue gun or...? And also, did you mod podge Over the paper after gluing it on or just leave it once it was glued? (I am a MP newbie Smiley )

i just mod podged the back of the paper and then stuck it to the shade, then dabbed mod pdge on the edges of the lamp to stick the ribbon on.

what did you use the get it one there? and is that black trim I see? I really like this, great job!

it is actually just paper modpodged onto the lampshade with skinny black ribbon to cover up the edges

while i think it would be awesome, i dont think it would work quite like you think. iron-on transfers generally stretch & split with a lot of stretching/movement, so with shoes i think it would be even more so than cracking on a tee shirt. it would also be hard to get it to stick fully on a rounded surface like a shoe.
