Jojo and Mei Mei have been very 'busy' in their room this morning. I can see Mei Mei running up and down looking for papers...I passed her a few sheet of 'recycled paper' but she said her big sister want her to get something 'nice and special'. The little one ask for a few pieces colored paper and run into their room again. Hmm...what 'funny' things are they up to this time? So, I took a peek into the room... and I found a very messy room with paper scraps, scissors and pens...and these...
These little paper dresses are everywhere in the room.
They are so cute.
I totally love the ones made by the pages from the old yellow page.
Jojo learns this at school and it so adorable and
I must agree it's a perfect dress for Mother's Day!
So, I asked Jojo to show me the tutorial.
It's not easy at all...no wonder they spent the whole morning with it.
Start with a square piece of paper
fold into half for twice.
Open up the fold and you will have 3 crease line marks.
fold the outer crease line in ward to the center crease line
Then fold a 'z' crease
This will be the front of the dress
Now, pull the corner at the end
and pressed firmly
Do the same for the other side
Fold down the top corner into 'collar' like this
and press to make a crease mark.
We just need the crease, open it up again
and turn to the 'back' of the dress
Pull down from the center you will have a nice triangle shape like this
This is the neckline.
Now, fold in the 'sleeve' like this
at the same time make a crease to form the 'skirt'.
This could be hard to understand.
I hope the pictures are helpful.
Do the same for both side
Now, fold out the sleeves in triangle shape
This is what you will have
And turn it over, this is your cute little paper dress.
And these are some of my favorite
Now, if you still looking for 'the best' Mother's Day Gift...
Here a tip...
'The best' Mother's Day gift is 'made' by love,
and it could be just a piece of paper.
Happy Mother's Day!
