Excuse Mayhem for a moment while she finishes her cookie. Because eating a chocolate chip cookie while posing in a “chocolate” dress only makes sense, right?
Pretty much not a day goes by that we don’t receive a message from someone letting us know how much they enjoy what we’re doing and think it would be fun to try with their own kids. Our thoughts? Go for it!
My friend Erin suggested the hashtag #inspiredbymayhem to encourage others to join in the shenanigans. Genius, that girl
Let’s face it, this isn’t rocket science here folks, and we’re just making it up as we go. Some trial and error, a giant roll of packing tape and and a whole lot of fun. And for the record, we made our first paper dress on May 23, 2013 and it looked like this:
We didn’t even have packing tape then! Since that time, we’ve literally made more than a hundred paper dresses. We’ve done simple stuff, fancy stuff, outlandish stuff, and gone right back to simple stuff. Sure, we’ve figured out some tricks along the way and we plan to share some of those with you here in the coming days.
And if you don’t have any tissue paper, wrapping paper or construction paper laying around, no worries! Just get creative with whatever you have laying around. We’ve even used an entire roll of foam athletic tape as an outfit:
But for now, we’ d love for you to take a shot at it and share your creations with us. Tag your images with #inspiredbymayhem if you’re willing to let us feature them here on our site. Like @fourplusangel did ….
A whole royal family … High five to Jessica for knocking it out of the park on her first go at this!
So hop to it peeps, let’s have some fun together
