Butterfly 2255  Wedding Table Marker Vase

Supplies Needed:

Wedding Vase Instructions:

  1. Measure the distance around the top of your jar. Cut and remove the wire from the Natural Jute Cord.
  2. Apply a little bit of glue on each end of the Jute Cord to prevent fraying.
  3. Glue cord around top of the jar. Glue on gem to cover seam.
  4. Thread two Blingella Beads onto a length of Quasar ribbon. Tie ribbon around neck of the jar with a knot. Trim and knot ends of Quasar ribbon to hold the beads in place. A little bit of glue on the ends of each knot will add extra security.
  5. Tie Gazette Ribbon around the center of the vase with a knot. Add a small amount of glue underneath the knot to hold the ribbon in place.
  6. Glue small gem onto knot.
  7. Print a computer generated table number or greeting onto cream card-stock.
  8. Trim and cut card stock. Cut the end with a “v” to create the banner. Leave enough card-stock on the left side of the banner so that it can be folded around the Deco Ice stick pin.
  9. Attach banner around the Deco Ice stick pin and insert into the Gazette Ribbon knot.
  10. Fill vase with flowers and add the Fabrique Butterfly.

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!

Creating a Keepsake Memory Box with Decorative Trimmings

Sue Eldred's Keepsake Memory Box

I recently got a beautiful assortment of ribbons and trims from Decorative Trimmings to use

on a special project.  It was hard choosing which trims I wanted to use, because their selection

is wonderful.  I decided to Create a Keepsake Memory Box.

You know… for all those special little things that you want to keep and remember forever.

A perfect little box to fill with small gifts for Weddings, Mother’s Day, Bridal or Baby Showers.

Or maybe old love letters from your husband.   (Hmmm… I’d need a bigger box.)

Keepsake Box and Tag Close Up 4973

For my Keepsake Memory Box and Tag I used three of the trims.

  1. Paint a large paper mache box with white acrylic paint.
  2. Cover it with scrapbook paper.   (I purchased mine from Michael’s.)
  3. Glue the Decorative Trimmings using Beacon Fabri-Tac Permanent Adhesive* (affiliate link)
  4. Stamped greeting is from Serendipity Stamps.
