Tutu Dress Birthday Card

I made this card for my niece’s 10th birthday. She goes to a ballet school, and I thought it would be nice to make something with that theme. I didn’t find anything interesting online, so I used my own imagination and that’s what I came up with:

Yes, a tutu dress! The design is a replica of Onesie Invitations (see below) that Jennifer, my demonstrator, and I previously made for my baby shower.

I just changed it a little bit, added a pleated skirt made from bright pink tissue paper and decorated it with a flower made from little hearts (use Heart to Heart punch for that) with a Trio flower in the center.

Difficulty: Hard

Card dimensions: 4 x 5.5".

Stamps (Stampin Up!): Sincere Salutations

Ink (Stampin Up!): Real Red

Paper (Stampin’ Up!): Pretty in Pink textured cardstock, Melon Mambo paper, Old Olive paper, Pumkin Pie paper.

Embellishments (Stampin’ Up!): Pretty in Pink 3/8’’ Taffeta ribbon

Tools (Stampin Up!): 1-3/4’’ Circle Extra-Large punch, 1-3/4’’ Circle Extra-Large Scallop punch, Two-Step Bird Extra-Large punch, Heart to Heart Extra-Large punch, Trio Flower punch (retired), glue dots.

    How did you fold the tissue portion for the tutu. I made the can but could not figure out the tutu portion. I would like to make it out of center piece, Please post.

    1. I folded 1 sheet of tissue paper in half and then I just fold it back and forth several times like here: You'll need two folded sheets - for the front and the back...I hope I answered your question...Good luck!
