Scrapbook your party dress

And I don’t mean make a scrapbook layout with a photo of you in a magnolicious new dress.

Check out these super cool party dresses all made from scrapbooking papers!

Are they gorgeous or what?

The creative geniuses at DCWV, who make some very tasty scrapbook papers, created these life-size couture dresses to showcase their latest paper stack lines.

Each dress is made from papers out of one of the lines and they were on exhibition at a trade show in Los Angeles last weekend. The exhibit, called Make It With Paper: A Runway Collection was made up of eight different dresses. Each one made from a different range of papers and each one made using nothing but the scrapbooking papers.

Each of the dress designs was inspired by the paper range that was chosen to create it. And I reckon that just as much time and effort must have gone into creating these examples of  haute couturier de papier as you’ll find in any of the big designer houses of Paris.

I have to say I would really love one of these dresses myself. I quite fancy myself in the pirate dress on the right. How about you?

So if you’re looking for inspiration it’s hard to go any further than this.

Forget the mall next time you’re freshening up your party wardrobe. Head straight for your scrapbooking stash.

. . . Oh, and try not to let anyone spill any drinks on you.

    I know how long it can take to creat a beautiful scrapbook page but to create a life size dress, or 8 wow the time. These are breath taking works of art.
