From a Tissue to a Stunning mini Dress!

Hello family!

I hope you are having a lovely and safe day.

I was mind blown when I read about this idea. So I tried it myself, and of course had to share it with you as a lot of you enjoy my DIYs; which makes me joyful and pleased (btw thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post Β πŸ™‚ Β ).

As much as I was excited for this DIY, I was worried about the way I will explain it. To be honest, I struggled. But with those kind of DIYs, it’s always better to look than to read. That’s why I put a lot of pictures to help you understand every step. I would highly recommend that you focus more on the pictures; it’s clear and easy to follow.

If you are ready to make some dresses, than let’s go ahead and get started! Β πŸ˜‰

You will need:

*Tissues (couldn’t find the real name haha but the one we find in restaurants… you can find them in any supermarket. Here’s a picture that I found on Google)

*Scissors.

*Glue.

*Pearl band for the belt

*Pearls or diamonds for decoration.

Method:

1- Fold the tissue in half from the first side.

2- Do the same thing for the other side.

3- Open the tissue, then fold the first half in a half.

4- Do the same for the other half.

5- Turn your piece and open it, take the first halfΒ and bring it back to the original half.

It should look like this from the sides.

6- Do the same thing for the other side.

At this point you should get something like this.

7- Fold it into half.

8- Now, take the bottom half and put it above the middle (for about 2 cm) then fold it…

… you should het something like this.

9- Take the first side (the one similar to the picture) and try carefully to fold it; this will be the front bottom of the dress.

10- Turn to the other side: Take the part (the one I am putting my finger on) and fold it. This will be our V neck.

Your fold should look like this.

11- Take the middle of each side and bring it to the center. I would recommend you place your fingers the way I did, that way you don’t get lost.

Again, you should get something like this.

12- Finally, glue all your folds (except the ones we did on the front for the bottom of the dress because those folds are decorative).

For decoration:

13- Take the Pearl band/stripe,

14- Then measure the length of the belt

15- And finally cut it and glue it.

16- This is optional but: you can do the same for the shoulders and the V neck.

17- Measure it and glue it. I thought it would look better if I cut it in half.

18- You can add anything you want: pearls, stars, flowers. I chose a star and I put it in the middle of the belt.

  1. Wow that’s so neat πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ Kind of like origami but you could do it with a tissue. I would love to do this but I’m really bad at origami and I mean I start off great and then I get lost and I’m like wait, what, huh? That’s why I kind of prefer videos. But yours was pretty understandable so I’ll give it a try.

    1. I know Origami is pretty confusing. I suck at it. Like really🀣. I am beyond happy to know that you understood the step by step process( even if a little bit) to me is amazing. I truly appreciate your comments. And again sooo funny πŸ˜„

      1. I think you can just press the Pinterest button at the bottom of your post and share it on your board. Or if you have a ”Pin it” button on the top bar of your browser, you can just pin a picture of your post and it will be saved on your selected board. Hope it’d work πŸ™‚ x
