My son's wedding to celebrate the sacrament of marriage is coming up this Friday. My new daughter-in-law, co-mother-in-law, daughter and I have been very busy!! We are all crafters (I love that he is marrying one of "my kind."
Cami, my DIL, has made all the centerpieces, the bridesmaids bouquets and the Table Numbers. Her mom has made all the rest of the flowers, and made some amazing cards and favors for the shower. I have been busy making the following items for this event:
I bought a paper mache chest for the cards that guests will drop into the box. Using black acrylic paint, distressing it while still wet, and rubbing some Tim Holtz distress inks, I gave the "straps" on the chest a leather look.
I used patterned papers and Mod Podged them onto the chest, front, back sides and bottom. I used black ink and rubbed it onto the edges for an aged look.
I also distressed the brads and lock with inks and distress embossing powder. Then, since the wedding has a tropical theme, I added a couple star
fish, and before gluing the box partially open, I attached
Another project I finished was the ring bearer's pillow. Nothing more than to hot glue another large star fish onto the pillow and tie ocean charms onto the ends of the ties.
The starfish decoration was on 80% clearance. Both were colored purple, which is the bride's favorite color (her sash is called regency Purple) and is mounted to a piece of white-washed wood.
I placed the boutonnieres in small white boxes and tied them up with lace (like the guys will appreciate that touch).
I'll have more pictures next weekend!
