To start off, here is a project piece about our Chipboard Wardrobe Kit by Marion. Thank you Marion for taking the time to give us some feedback!
I just love Mementoes In Time wardrobe kits and templates!
I had the perfect occasion for making a Wedding Wardrobe when my niece announced her wedding on a cruise!
I called it her emergency wardrobe - just in case she forgot her dress! Using the wardrobe kit I followed the instructions, deciding I would paint the chipboard.
Please note that the instructions recommend a good paint. Mine was obviously not the best quality as I had to do at least 4 coats.
My brush was too stiff too so use a good quality soft brush for a nice finish. I covered the wardrobe panels in black and white printed paper and used Mod Podge as an adhesive. I would recommend painting the back and the edges of the panels first. I tend to do things the hard way!
I used stickles glitter glue for the door handles but only because I couldn't get a brad through all the layers of chipboard. So I also recommend putting the brad handles on before you adhere the wardrobe door panels on. To adhere the chipboard pieces I used a gem glue which was strong and fast drying.
I adhered the backing paper inside the wardrobe with Mod Podge. I painted the wooden hanging rail black but found it was a little bit too short so I glued together about 5 single hole punches for each end of the rail and adhered these to the rail then once they were dry I adhered the rail into the wardrobe.
I had purchased the wedding clothes so I just had to tie cotton onto the dress straps to hang from the coat hanger and glued cotton to the waist of the pants to hang them. I also tied cotton to the veil to hang it over the hook of the coat hanger.
This part proved to be very fiddly as I was all fingers and thumbs!!
I just used the self adhesive tabs on the other clothing items to attach to the hangers. The top hat was made using the free template on wedding clothes from Mementoes In Time and the flowers I already had so I just wrapped and glued them in some tissue paper and then adhered them and the hat to the top of the wardrobe. All done, looks great, a little fiddly but well worth the effort!
