Create some wedding thank you cards that will wow your guests! All you need are a few supplies, a little bit of time, and a lot of love.
You worked on planning out every detail of your wedding for months – or years. You battled nerves on the big day and looking back on it now, it all seems like a big and blurry ball of excitement. The details of your wedding day might seem fuzzy to you now, but one thing is for sure… it wouldn’t have been the wedding it turned out to be were it not for the presence of your loved ones (and you haven’t forgotten the other presents they brought to the table, as well!). A sincere “thank you” is in order and though your wrists might regret all of the unfamiliar handwriting to come, your guests surely will not. … read more
If you will be using a ring pillow for your wedding, do not buy it! I guarantee that you can make one yourself, even if you’re a completely novice sewer.
This DIY sewn ring pillow is so easy. I guarantee that you can make one too, even if you’re a newbie sewer.
First you’ll need to select your fabric. A cotton fabric of any weight will work just fine. If you’re buying fabric, a ¼ yard or fat quarter will be more than enough. I used lightweight linen in an off-white color. You’ll also want to consider if you want to add any contrasting color or fabric to make the pillow a little more visually interesting. I selected a wide piece of lace to use across the top of my ring pillow square. You could add another piece of fabric, some felt, or a wide piece of ribbon as well. … read more
What’s better than books? Roses made from those very same books! These book roses will add a vintage theme to any wedding.
I learned how to do these a couple years ago when I was playing around with the idea with my sister. We loved how they looked and even went an extra step and glued them to a tree limb and put them in vases at our house. They are beautiful but trust me they will take a little patience. Also, you will be destroying a book – so keep that in mind. In my case I just went and picked up the cheapest book. It will only take two pages to make a single rose so depending on how many roses you want that’s how many pages you will need. As long as it has text and no pictures it will work. If you want more of a vintage feel you can buy a book with darker pages but I will also show you a technique to make lighter color paper have more of a dark and weathered-down look. … read more
