The weekend before my friend’s wedding we got together for a crafternoon to create her fabric cover card box, hand-stamped name cards and to fold the wedding ceremony programs. The bride provided milkshakes so I was totally game to help!
I brought the paper cutter so I cut the names and blue cardstock that was matted on the hand-stamped polka dot background that another friend was stamping. The bride was folding programs and then when she finished that we all glued.
Then came the fabric-covered card box, which is two pieces. The opening was cut first so that the fabric could be tucked under. For the box, we brought the fabric up to top of the box but did not tuck it over the edge (otherwise the lid would not fit well). Double-sided tape and glue gun were the main adhesives. I had my netbook and we looked up how to create a bow and the bride created her own bow! I’m so proud of her because she says she’s not crafty, but that bow proves it just requires following directions!
I forgot to take a photo of the table, but she had polka dot table runners. And probably my favorite feature of this wedding was that they had cupcakes instead of slices of cake! The chocolate covered pretzels rods were delish, too, but in lieu of traditional favors they made a donation to two charities, which is a thoughtful gesture.
