It’s time for the 10th Annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest sponsored by Charmin. Laura Gawne and Susan Bain, who operate the www.Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com, annually ask readers to create wedding gowns using toilet paper, tape, needle, thread and glue. You can win $2,000!
Feeling inspired? You have until May 13 to submit your design — just the photos. The contest judges creativity, originality, beauty and the use of toilet paper.
Judges choose 10 finalists and open the contest to online voting. And the top 10 get a trip to NYC to show off their dresses.
The photo above is 2013 second place winner Susan Brennan, of Orchard Lake, Mich., a Detroit Pistons cheerleader. I chose her because she was the grand prize winner in 2011 and 2012. She used 11 rolls of Charmin Ultra Soft, packing tape, scotch tape, hot glue and needle and thread.
The 2013 third place winner was Carol Touchstone, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., pictured at left. She used 30 rolls of Charmin, Mod Podge glue, Scotch tape, clear packing tape, double-sided tape, white glue and needle and thread. She received a $500 prize.
