Fashionable dresses made of paper? How fun is that? These adorable creations were designed by one talented little 4 year old girl and her mother. Created out of construction paper, tissue paper, wrapping paper, and gift bags as well as silk scarves, tulle, aluminum foil and whatever else is lying around the house, the dresses are then put together with clear packing tape or glue. This mini fashion designer, who goes by the name “Mayhem,” also likes to re-create red carpet dresses, giving them her own unique paper spin.
