This past weekend we were able to attend another wedding reception for a wonderful couple, Brian and Rebecca. I made them a gift that was different from what I've been giving and I really loved it. I'll show it to you soon but today I wanted to show you the card I made.
I really love reusing materials so for weddings I like to cut up the bride and grooms announcement to make their card. After all, I don't need it anymore and they picked it out so they must really love it. Sometimes I'll use their engagement picture, or a monogram but for this one I used this awesome picture.
Rebecca has fantastic style and this darling jar was at the bottom of the announcement. I simply cropped out the jar and sewed it to the cream colored paper. I used a stamp to add the word LOVE. I then glued that portion to a piece of brown card stock that matched the brown paper wrappings. I wrote the message on the back of the card/tag, punched a hole in the corner and tied it to the package.
The whole thing took about 5 minutes to make and the bride loved it.
Can you imagine if everyone re-purposed your announcement as a card?? I would love to see all the different things that people would do with it!
