La Rosa dressform

I've had this metal dressform for some time now. Almost a year maybe? It was originally a sort of off white color with an ugly pink bow in front. I got it cheap at Hobby Lobby though, and never intended to keep it the original color. :)  But, like many plans, the painting of it and then decorating it as home decor never happened... just never enough time you know?

However! I'm in the Cricut Circle, and the Circle Blog's monthly contest (open only to Circle members) this month was to make a home decor item using felt, something green, something cuttlebug and at least one cricut cut. So, I pulled out this forgotten piece and went to work.  It's fairly simple really. I did get my hubby to do the spray painting for me as I had to work long hours on Black Friday. But I cut the roses from felt, the leaves are from A Child's Year cartridge, the flourishes are from Cindy Loo, and the leaves were embossed with my swiss dot cuttlebug folder. This will look very nice next to some keepsakes and photos of our wedding. :)

Thanks for looking!


  1. Great the details and I never would have thought to run felt through the cuttlebug..thanks for the tip.
