DIY Bridesmaid Cards –； How I asked my friends to be in our wedding!
So last week I decided I really needed to officially ask my girls who I wanted as bridesmaids for my wedding. I already knew who I wanted to stand by me but I really wanted to do something cute for them. Money's kinda tight for me as we are saving for the wedding but I wanted to at least make them sweet DIY bridesmaid cards- so that's exactly what I did! Here's some photos illustrating how I made the cards. Basically I sketched out some cute dresses on sketchbook paper， then I cut out one dress design on one shade of teal/turquoise cardstock I picked up at the craft store. Thenpersonalized wedding gifts， I used a corner rounder punch to round the edges of a white card that I placed on the light turquoise cards I purchased. I used a silver Gel pen to add some details to the dresses， then I laid them in order on the white layer and secured them using glue sticks， then I wrapped a yellow ribbon around the dresses and taped it down to the white layer. From there I glued down the assembled card and voila! A little replica of the different hues of dresses that I want my gals to wear on the wedding day! ？？ I was happy with how they turned out. What do you think？linen sheets
I have a friend Kelly, who is a florist, who taught me years ago that anything is a vase. It opened up a world of decor opportunities to rethink objects & make centerpieces out of them. The same applies to light fixtures. While I’m not in an overly DIY phase right now, sometimes you just can’t find exactly what you’re looking for & you have to create it. You can turn anything into a light fixture. Well, almost.
The other day, I was explaining to a non-DIY-type friend that craft stores have their Christmas supplies up so early so that makers can have all their goods ready to sell/gift/hoard in time for the season. So in honor of the early starters here’s a little Christmas in September. I’m going to share my favorite quick pillowcase tutorial. A pillowcase makes a great gift by itself, and like we did here, as wrapping for a coordinating gift like our PJ pants!I learned this pillowcase technique a few years ago at QuiltCon when American Patchwork and Quilting was doing their 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge. UPDATE:? I just went to the site and it’s still going, so go check it out and make a few extra to donate! Bust that stash for a good cause!
For the opera "H?nsel und Gretel" (by Engelbert Humperdinck) the costume designer wanted to have Gretel a handbag in the shape of an IKEA rat, so I made one... If you like this project, consider voting for me in the contest! ;-)
