I realize my blog has been severely neglected. This past weekend I was honored to be a part of one of my best friend’s wedding. It was so beautiful, and so elegant, and we were able to capture some amazing photos.
Although I’d love to write a post about the wedding alone, I’m sure you all have seen the pictures on my facebook. The reason for this post is the gift I made for her and the groom. I was inspired by this photo I saw, and I knew I had to make it.
Start with a color scheme you like. I went for neutrals. I also lined the mat board with burlap for an earthy look.
Line them up to start creating whatever shape it is you’re making. In this case it was a W for their last name.
You can start to see the W take shape.
Unfortunately I was so excited to give this to her at her bachelorette party that I ran out the door without taking a final photo of the finished project! I’m kicking myself now. I promise that I’ll bug her for a picture as soon as she gets back from her honeymoon. (I swear it looks a lot better than the last shot)
Until then, just imagine and enjoy the simple beauty of a $5 project. Happy Thrifty Thursday!
