Meet Maura! Just your typical Missouri high school student that made her senior year prom dress out of cardboard. Wait, what? Yes, CARDBOARD!!
The top of the dress is middle part of corrugated cardboard that was peeled apart. If you have ever looked at a cardboard box it is 3 layers, an outer shell on each side with a wavy part in the middle. The wavy part is the top! Maura then spray painted the pieces and painted glitter on top. Everything is glued together with wood glue and hot glue. And no prom dress would be complete without a corset back!
The bottom of the dress proved to be the challenge on this project as it was made of paper bags, and then spray painted, with a zipper in the back.

This is not Maura’s first attempt at making her prom dress. Below are her Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior year dresses. All unique, all awesome!
