  • Project by Janie Medley Photos by Tori Watson Photography   This lovely floral wall makes perfect décor for a wedding reception, bridal shower, dinner parties — you name it!       Ingredients:  4 Bunches of Carnations (I used 4 different color palettes) Washi Tape Scissors Note:  Carnations are “hardy” flowers.  They do quite well out of water.  If you are going to have your carnation wall outside (and if it is a warm day), I would fill a spray bottle with water and mist the carnations.   How To:   Step One:  Purchase the carnations a couple of days before the event.  Once you get them home, give the stems a trim with the floral scissors and place them in a bucket of cool water.         On the day of the event, cut the stems of the carnations.  (There are 25 carnations in a pack, so depending on how full or how large you want the flower wall to be, use your judgment on how many you need to use).       Step Two: Cut a strip of the washi tape and secure the carnation to the wall. Place the carnations on the wall in whatever pattern you desire.     Step Three: I used some of the leftover stems and placed them in bud vases and I cut the blooms off the stems to place around the vases!

    Materials: Vellum paper, 56 sheets of paper, a sewing machine,  fishing weights (not pictured), an exacto knife and straight edge (or a stack cutter,) artist tape (for hanging)

    Cut the sheets of vellum into one inch strips. You can do this with an exacto knife or have it cut all at one time with a stack cutter. (If you decide to go the stack color route organizing the paper in the order you want it to hang in will save you some time.)Measure the height of the space where the mobiles will hang to figure out how long you want them. Keep in mind you'll want to keep the eyesight of the guests clear of any obstruction. Once you know the length of the mobiles, layout the different colors in the order you want. Repeat until it is close to the length of mobile you want. Then put it into a stack and it is ready to sew.

    Leave a 12" tail of thread at the beginning and start to sew down the middle of the first strip. (I found it is easiest to put a piece of tape on the sewing machine at the end of the strip as a guide to mark where the vellum should be sewn.) Continue feeding each addition strip into the sewing machine.

    At the end leave another long tail of string. As you are sewing, try to be consistent on the amount of space between each strip but if its not perfect its ok, this design is very forgiving. Our mobiles were about four feet and the actual sewing took about 10 minutes for each mobile.     Hang the mobiles at varying heights over the center of the table with artist tape.     If left by itself the bottom paper will curl up, add a simple fishing weight at the bottom to prevent this from happening and to add a nice polish to the project.     This bright and modern mobile project is perfect for a daytime wedding reception or shower and can be done in any color scheme. It will transform the room and make a big impact.     The best part is this whole project can be made on the cheap -- for under $25     Use your imagination - or any color palette - to go with your event theme.     Gorgeous!

    The vintage book theme has been a major player in wedding themes this year. We think these bookmark escort cards are the perfect touch to your celebration!

    The materials: Paper, access to a lamination machine, an exacto knife and pretty markers.     First you will need to laminate the paper you are using. You can buy a small machine to do this or bring your papers to the local copy store for lamination.Next, you will need to cut out your bookmarks using a straight edge or paper trimmer.     Trace a small heart on the top portion of each bookmark.    

    Using an exacto knife, cut around the heart 90% of the way.

     

    Leave a small portion of the heart uncut and attached to the page.

    After cutting, you can easily erase your tracing lines with a clean cloth.

    Using your pen, fill in table numbers on the heart and fold up for easy viewing on your seating table.

    Write in each guest name on the long end of the book mark - and you are done!

  • Project and Photos By: Jennifer Kirk   Color printing can make up the bulk of the cost for invitations.

(You can use the downloadable PDF as a guide for both the fabric cutouts and invitations.)     Step Two  Fold fabric in half. Sew each side closed with a straight-stitched, 1/4" seam.     Step Three With pinking shears, trim the very edges of the sides and top. Your finished pouch holds a 4.35"x6.5" invitation.     Patterned Envelope Liners: Step One To line "announcement" envelopes (a straight envelope flap), first cut out paper rectangles measuring 6.75"x4".     Step Two Round the top corners with a paper corner rounder and lightly spray the back of the paper with spray mount.     Step Three With one hand, pop the envelop open. With your other hand, gently guide the paper partway into the envelope, rounded corners towards the top. The backside is sticky from the spray mount, so take care not to let it adhere to the envelope.     Step Four Align the top of the paper so that it sits just below the envelope adhesive and the edges are even on both sides of the flap. Press down firmly, then fold the flap down to crease the paper with the envelope.     Step Five Use scraps of paper to embellish RSVP cards, directions, etc.

    Looking for a less traditional cake topper for your wedding? These vintage fabric stars will bring a dose of bright charm to your cake or dessert bar.     Materials: To make them, you'll need basic star frame(s), mod podge, fabric, and scissors. Small cardboard star frames are available at your local craft store, while larger metal frames can be readily found at thrift stores or at many big box stores.     Materials (cont.): Find a fabric that coordinates with your wedding day. Search Etsy for a wide variety of pretty vintage florals or check your local fabric store for vintage replica fabrics.     Step One: Cut your fabric to the approximate size of your star and dredge it in a bowl of Modge Podge until completely wet. Place the fabric on top of your mold and use your fingers to gently shape it into form. Let dry overnight.     Step Two: Once dry, cut the fabric closer to the frame shape and turn over. Secure any extra fabric in the back with glue.     Step Three: Use wood glue to attach a stick to the backside of a large star frame. Many smaller frames come sold with small wooden sticks already attached.     Display Tip: Place one large star in your cake for a bold bright touch or scatter smaller stars atop cakes, cupcakes and desserts.
