Hey, who moved Monday?!?
I am one day late, but with 2 Projects for the Month of June!
First something OLD 🙂
Last Monday I showed you a project that was inspired by Lynn’s KS Crew Challenge … use a piece of ribbon as the inspiration. I mention that I thought about something old, something new, … something blue. The “new” and “blue” is pretty easy to see on the garter (that dreamy silk ribbon), but I did not mention what was “OLD” …. (I think I was still on a sugar high from all the birthday cake! LOL). The “old” is at the bottom of the garter. I had a handmade doily of my grandmother’s that had a large tear in the center . 😦 I just could not bring myself to let it go (I’m have trouble even writing, “throw out”). But, Lynn’s challenge and the ribbon garter was the perfect project for a piece of vintage (and sentimental) lace. Yes, I cut (gasp!) the edge off the doily and it became the bottom of the garter. The full tutorial can be found HERE. I also had a number of comments about if there was a special bride for the garter … Yes, there is (hope she’s not reading today), it is for my god-daughter… when the time comes her to need. 😉
Another side note about this ribbon garter, I used ScoreTape to hold the ribbons in place with the intentions of sewing the layers together at the end….. well, the ScoreTape does such an amazing job, there was very little sewing involved.
Now to show you something new …. another project!
I guess I still have wedding on the brain with this next project. A quick and economical Embossed Wedding Favor. The dry embossing gives this simple 2″x 2″ favor box an elegant look that is also very quick to accomplish. The stamped wedding tag (which can be personalized from the wedding couple on the back of the tag) is easy for a group of friends to help assemble. The full tutorial for this project can be found HERE.
You may have seen their fabulous KSS cards yesterday, but you can always pay the KS Crew another visit!
