When I did the flea market a couple weeks ago I found this cardboard mannequin torso. She was old and falling apart, but she was only $6. I figured that I could do something fun with her so she would survive many more years. She was missing chunks of her so I decided to papermache her with old book pages and some old sheet music. She turned out so awesome. I decided to put her in my living room and put some of my handmade necklaces on her. I plan on using her at shows to display my jewelry.
