There’s a lot of dimension on this tag. 

  • I used white letters which are dye-able. I mixed a drop of ink into a mini spray bottle filled with water and spritzed the letters to tint them.
  • Emboss your cardstock, trim part of it into a tag shape, and punch a circle from another part. Glue the letters onto the circle – use the couple’s last name in the center and their first names on the sides.
  • Die-cut a decorative border for the circle. Use the foam squares to adhere the circle to the tag and embellish with a mini flower and trim.
  • You can find Joy® embroidered, iron-on numbers and letters on sheets or individually in a variety of fonts, colors and sizes at your local craft store.

The Monogram Wedding Tag was created for and sponsored by Joy®.

Making Mini Resin Frames

Resin Frame and Magnet 2788

I had this idea that I’d been wanting to try…

to create little dimensional framed artwork using miniature frames filled with resin.

It really is pretty easy to do.  The only hard part for me was waiting for the resin to cure.

They would be great for weddings or parties.

Customize the frames to use for table numbers, centerpieces, desert tables and more.

There’s a lot of possibilities.

To Create a Mini Frame…

Materials:

Directions:

  1. Remove the backing and glass from frame.
  2. Apply Rose Gold Metallic Lustre or paint of choice onto frame.
  3. Adhere decorative paper onto mat-board.   Cut mat-board to fit frame back and adhere.
  4. Embellish the inside of the frame with computer generated words or small embellishments. Make sure embellishments inside the frame is lower than frame top.
  5. Measure and mix resin following manufacturer’s instructions. Pour mix into frame to cover embellishments. Blow air onto the resin using a thin straw to help remove bubbles. Let dry completely.

Create a Simple Vase Centerpiece

Washi Tape Vase and Flowers 2

Want to make a great impression but don’t have a lot of time? 

Here’s a quick and easy centerpiece project for your next party or gathering?

Washi Tape and Vase

I put together this simple vase using Washi Tape I received from Little B LLC

and an inexpensive dollar store cylinder vase.

TIP:  I drew a line with a permanent marker halfway down the vase to use as a starting point to keep everything neat and all my lines straight.  Simply wrap the vase with the washi tape.  (it’s that easy)    It only takes a few minutes to create an elegant look.

Washi Tape Vase Close Up

Next…I filled it with fresh flowers cut from my garden.

Or pick up a bouquet at the grocery store.

It would be great centerpiece vase for Weddings, Showers or any special gatherings.

It’s a temporary idea with elegant results. 

Here’s the list of the Little B Decorative Tape Used:

  • 100435 Silver Foil Black Pin Stripe
  • 100562 Gold Foil Hearts
  • 100047 Blk w/Sm Wht Polka Dots
  • 100443 Gold Foil Toile
  • 100344 Black and White Stripe
  • 100011 Damask Black/White
  • 100563 Gold Foil Love

A special thanks to Little B for sending the washi tape to work with.
