Craft Roundup: Paper Dress Fashion, Rainbow Loom Suit

From Rainbow Loom suits worn by celebrities to up-and-coming paper dress designers, crafty kids have been in the news a lot the past few weeks with their one-of-a-kind creations. Craft staples, great ideas and a little bit of hard work have caught the attention of major news outlets as kids have shown off their unique ideas. This week’s roundup celebrates that work and pairs it with some additional projects to keep the inspiration going.

4-Year-Old Paper Dress Fashion

4-Year-Old Paper Dress Fashion

If you haven’t seen 4-year-old Mayhem’s “spring collection” of paper dresses created by herself and her mother, you need to read this interview on Huffington Post Parents right now. For Mayhem, a lover of dress-up, store-bought dresses weren’t cutting it anymore. This no-sew option is a collaborative effort between mother and daughter, often inspired by red-carpet fashion (their Jennifer Lawrence Golden Globes dress is perfection!) and today’s style icons. Make sure to follow them on Instagram to see the latest creations.

Bunny Paper Dolls Kit

Are your kids revved up to try their hands at paper fashion after seeing Mayhem’s hard work? Why not start by designing your own paper dolls, but with a seasonal twist – bunnies! Check out this spring-forward collection of outfits from Paper Source.

Jimmy Kimmel Debuts #SuitOfTheLoom

Knowing how popular Rainbow Looms are, I’m sure it didn’t take Jimmy Kimmel long to collect enough woven accessories to create this amazing looped suit. Kimmel created the attire to raise money for a children’s cancer charity. He received so many strands – including a big submission from kids in Farmington Hills, Mich. – that there was enough material to make ties for his band, too!

Super crafter and Michigan native Haley Pierson-Cox has a free printable that will have your Rainbow Loom lovers ready to plan their next project’s color scheme. Take a look at her post to see how she approached painting her own chart.
