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®.

Directions:

  1. Paint the top portion of the cornice box with “Vintage” Chalky Finish paint and the bottom portion of the box with “Timeless” Chalky Finish paint. (inside and out)
  2. Lightly sand the box to smooth out the finish.
  3. Position “Mod Quatrefoil” stencil over the top of the box. Secure the stencil in place with the painters tape to prevent slipping. Use stipple brush to apply “Whisper” Chalky Finish paint inside open stencil areas.
  4. Remove stencil.
  5. Position and stencil “Mod Quatrefoil” pattern onto the sides of box.
  6. Allow paint to dry for a few hours and lightly sand over the stenciled area to give a slightly worn look.
  7. Apply clear crème wax onto the inside and outside of the box.
  8. Wait one hour and buff box using a soft clean rag.
  9. Measure and apply decorative paper onto the inside of the box.
  10. Tie a long length of Antique White Satin ribbon around the top of the box, tying a bow on the top.
  11. Cut cream cardstock into five 2 1/4” x 3 1/2” pieces.
  12. Stencil the letters to spell “CARDS” onto cream cardstock using the 3” Simple Script Alphabet.
  13. On the inside of the box: Clip the letters onto the ribbon using the mini clothespins.

Sue’s Creative Workshop’s Wedding Week

Wedding Picture Collage

June Brides, Weddings, Love is in the Air…

Time for some DIY Wedding Projects.

Last fall, I was given the opportunity to create five Wedding projects for Offray Ribbon.

I had so much fun working on this project with them.

They allowed me to choose anything I wanted to work with.

So many beautiful ribbons and embellishments.

Last week, I received permission that I could share them with you on my blog.

So… for the next five days, I will feature a DIY Wedding project complete with instructions

and pictures.

Enjoy and Share!
