I have to tell you that I am having a blast making these! I can see many uses for them, as I said before. And you are not limited to making the skirts from paper. How about scraps of fabric, netting, tulle, ribbon, and so on. And think of the embellishing possibilities. You are limited only by your imagination! So stop by Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts to see the wonderful selection of intricately cut chipboard you could use to make these your own!
Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful weekend!
