    Floral Gift Box

    No comments:

    Creating beautiful gift boxes to present your gifts to your bridal party or guest is a wonderful way to add a creative handmade touch to your special day. With just a few crafty items you can transform a plain paper mache box into this floral gift box.



    Supplies
    Silk flowers
    Paper mache gift box (pre-painted)
    Ric Rac
    Hot glue sticks
    Hot glue gun



    Instructions
    1.  Depending on the size of your box; separate three flower blossoms and two leaf clusters (six leaves). 

    2. Prepare your flowers by cutting the stems of the flowers close to the base, and remove any plastic from the centre of the leaf clusters.

    3. Separate the lid from the box and hot glue a leaf cluster to the centre of the lid.

    4. Place hot glue on the back of a flower and place in the centre of the leaves.

    5. Place hot glue on the back of your second flower and place just behind the leaves in the centre of the lid.

    6. Hot glue the second leaf cluster to the centre of the lid.

    7. Hot glue the third flower and place in the centre of the second leaf cluster.

    8. (Optional) Use a tiny bead of hot glue and attach the ric rac around the edge of the lid in the middle, and overlap slightly at the start point.




    Now your box is ready!

    You can make any size or shape gift box you like. The flowers and colours can coordinate with your wedding, and you can use ribbon as an alternative to ric rac. If you want to add some bling consider using rhinestones as an embellishment. All you have left is to add your bridal party gift or wedding favours to the box.

    Contact us if you will like to custom order gift boxes or will like a workshop on how to make your own.

    Vintage Wedding Inspiration

    No comments:
    We are so delighted to be able to include the stunning vintage inspired 18k white gold Hudson Ring by Brilliant Earth in our vintage wedding mood board. We were asked to participate in Brilliant Earth's "Personality Style Challenge." This opportunity came at a perfect time for us, as we have wanted to present ideas for a vintage inspired wedding; and what better way to do so than to use a mood board?



    A mood board is a great way to bring ideas together by selecting images relating to a particular concept or style (such as a vintage inspired wedding) using a collage layout. Source: Ring Brilliant Earth

    A vintage inspired wedding is a beautiful way to incorporate family heirlooms or your favourite collectables. You can capture any era or combine elements together for a truly unique wedding. If you enjoy vintage shopping then this is also a wonderful opportunity to visit your favourite shops to look for accessories like a beautiful beaded purse, vintage gloves or filigree earrings.

    Other great elements for this style of wedding include a classic lace dress which is a beautiful compliment. Your dress can be made from vintage lace or you can indulge in a classic designer lace wedding gown.

    No vintage wedding is complete without a few decorative touches. You can use pieces from your own collection or source items from a vintage rental company. There are no limits to what you can find and by adding a few pieces to your wedding, you will add style and atmosphere to your special day. Create a colour palette from the items you love and incorporate these colours into the different aspects of your wedding. Do not be timid when exploring your options.
