Hi everyone and Happy Monday!!
It was a beautiful weekend here– with perfect temperatures! We played outside a lot- and enjoyed the weather, and we are hoping it lasts thru this weekend for trick or treat.
Yesterday, I did sneak into my Craft Room- so I could get something done that I’ve been wanting to do for a month or so now.
When I very first started pinning on Pinterest- I saw this ornament with cut up pieces of a wedding invitation in it– I wish I could link to the site that had the ornament, but it was just the picture (no link).
Here’s the picture: (After I posted this, I found the original post, thanks to a friend- and this post also has step by step directions on how she made hers!)
Anyway, I remembered I had some left-over invites from our wedding nearly 7 years ago- and wanted to make something similar for our tree this year.
I know I am a little crazy for keeping them for so long but, I am so glad I did now. If you don’t have your invites- you could still type up and print the details of your wedding….OR…make this for someone who sends you an invite to their wedding! Wouldn’t that be a sweet little gift?
Okay…so here’s how I made mine:
Our wedding invitations had an inside printed layer of vellum, with our picture and the invitation portion, which I thought would be extra pretty in a glass ornament (so, if you are reprinting an invite…think about using vellum instead of regular paper)
I simply cut the lines of print apart from each other-
My Westcott paper cutter came in SUPER HANDY because I could see exactly where I was cutting, and it cuts perfectly straight- and the tiniest slivers without letting the paper slip. Love is….finding the perfect paper cutter!
Then taking each strip, I curled them using the edge of a pair of scissors–you know, how you’d curl Christmas ribbon 🙂
Oh…and since we were talking about pinterest- I wanted to be sure you all knew where you can find me on pinterest to see what I am pinning this week!
Plus, I’ve added a new feature on my posts- right below- that allows you to pin things that you might like from my blog 🙂 It’s that little button that says Pin it! Go ahead, give it a try- let me know if it doesn’t work!
Have a great week everyone!
