A Bag for a Sweet
At our wedding we had a candy buffet with mini paper bags for guests to fill and take home as a thank you gift. Here is a little demo for you to see what i did. I used a combination of different stamps to make the design that i wanted. Great idea for weddings and parties!
There you have it, a simple but very fun detail.

Flower Girl Baskets
Start by gluing the lace on the inside of the basket.
Now glue the white fabric to the inside. It can be a little tricky to figure this part out, but i’m sure you can do it!
Just glue on some fabric flowers and you are finished!
I can’t wait to give these to my sweet flower girls!
Lace and glue is all you need to make beautiful fabric flowers. I had to experiment a lot before i started making ones that i liked. There is so many different ways you could do this. So, i’ll just show you what worked for me.
You’ll need lace or fabric, glue gun, scissors and some buttons.
Cut a strip of Lace. I used about 10 in. for this flower.
Then i cut it in half.
I started folding the inside so that it overlaps in the middle.
when you get about half way around, add a dot of glue. i like to use the end of a paint brush to hold it all down.
Alright, first part done. It’s lookin’ good!
With the other strip of lace, cut out some designs.
Then do the same thing with this piece as the first part.
Here are some pictures of another flower i made.
Here’s just some of the flowers i made during my experiments. Later i’ll show you how i used these flowers for many different wedding things. Have fun!
I love lights hanging in the trees. So, i wanted to do some kind of lantern that i could make myself. My niece goes through an amazing amount of apple sauce and i found a way to turn the jars into cute lanterns.
For this project you will need:
Glass Jars, Lace, burlap, fabric (you can decorate them with pretty much anything), Glue gun, Wire and something to cut with.
Cut the fabric to the right size.
With your glue gun, put a dot of glue on the jar.
Start gluing your fabric around the jar.
When you get to the end, just finish it off with some glue. (i love glue guns)
Half way done!
I found this awesome, heavy floral wire.
Measure the wire by wrapping it 1 1/2 times around the top of the jar.
With your fingers, twist a loop on one side. Then twist the loose ends.
Using the wire cutters, twist the loose ends into another loop.
Thats it! I can’t wait to see what they will look like in the trees with some tea light candles.
Hope you enjoyed!
I Knew exactly what i wanted my save the dates to look like. The only problem was, everything was so expensive. So i thought to myself…i could make that. It was a very long process, but the end result turned out well.
Ok, this is probably the trickiest part. Trying to get the text in the little space on the post card. I messed up so many before i found my rhythm. I used a glass jar as a rolling pin. It was the best way to get all the words evenly on the paper.
My Idea of vintage Mason Jars
One of the first things that I was very excited about was making the center pieces for the reception. I really had no idea what I wanted to do until I was in a goodwill looking around and the burst of inspiration came. I love the antique teal mason jars, but unfortunately they sometimes cost an arm and a leg. So I just decided to make my own. I bought used vases and jars all different shapes and sizes. I like having variety. Then dyed them the color I wanted. Little did I know that there are many different ways to do this, the one I tried looks really good, but it is not water proof. Which is why I painted the outside instead of the inside.
For this Project you will need:
Any Glass vase or jar, Mod Podge, food coloring (i used blue and green for the antique look)
Paint brush and water.
Pour a couple Tablespoons of ModPodge. Add drops of food coloring. I like to add around 5 drops of blue to 2 green.
Add just about a Teaspoon of water.
Brush on the first coat and let it dry completely.
It will look clear when its dry.
Add as many coats as you want until its just the shade you are looking for.
There’s a few of the many Brandon and I made. After the wedding I will post pictures of how they look with flowers in them. And after that I will show you how I want to use these in our house. I like things that I can use more than once.
Hope you had fun!
