DIY paper doll bridal gift wrap

PAPER-DOLL-GIFT-WRAP

I have some friends who are getting married soon so I decided to personalize wrapping as a part of their gift. I’ve done this technique before (with Valentine’s Day wrapping) but thought it would be fun to try a bridal version with a bride and groom. It’s super easy to do whether you’re artistic or not.

YOU-WILL-NEED

What you need: craft knife, pen, pencil, wrapping paper, black and white paper, tape

Step 1: Wrap the gift. You will need to find where to place the paper dolls.

Step 2: With a pencil, make a shape of a bride in the position you’d like it to be on the gift wrap.

Step 3: Do the same with the groom.

Step 4: Take the gift wrap off the gift.

Step 5: With your craft knife, cut out one half of the paper dolls on a mat board.

Step 6: Fold over the other half to form the 3D shape.

Step 7: Place paper behind the dolls and secure with tape. I used black for the groom and white for the bride.

Step 8: Draw in some details like a necklace and shoes for the bride. Add in a white bow tie for the groom.

7 modern tiaras

MODERN-TIARAS

The classic tiara, historically designated for royalty, connotes a traditional princess wedding. However, there are a number of designers who are creating beautiful tiaras in new and different ways. Some are graphic with clean lines, others have been deconstructed and rebuilt to form an entirely new shape. Whatever your preference is there’s one for all of you!

Using fruits + vegetables as centerpieces

garden-party-decorations-vegetable-centerpiece

I love the idea of trying something totally different for a centerpiece. Take fruits and veggies, for example. In the right colors and arrangements, they can be beautiful! Add in some some small greenery and you’ve got some beautiful, fresh, and unexpected decor!

  1. Ombre fruit centerpiece
  2. Crudites as hors d’oeuvres
  3. Apple swag
  4. Bright fruits as centerpieces
  5. Pumpkins as decor
  6. Veggies in a box
