Bridal Shower Papercrafts!
I wanted to post a few photos to show you some of the decorations I made for the bridal shower held in early June for my future daughter-in-law, Lori. First, my paper wedding cake, inspired by a project in "Paper Creations" magazine Spring 2012 issue. I made it bigger than the magazine project. I found the stacking hatboxes at Hobby Lobby; the DP for the "cake" and the other decorations is K & Company's "Sparkly Sweet" 12x12 Specialty Paper pad. This was a challenge and something I've never tried before! Copious amounts of hot glue were involved, lol: Here's one more photo so you can get an idea of how big it is with the snacks around it: Here is the "Love Is Sweet" garland I made. The theme of the shower was candy and an ice cream social (along with lunch). Lori's sister and matron of honor, Amy, and the other bridesmaids did a fantastic job! I made a matching paper garden flag: I made paper bands for the vases embellished with flowers, rhinestones & dragonfly stickers: Each wine glass had a purple dragonfly sticker with the guest's name writen on it in white gel pen. Lori's glass had this special added touch of netting and flower: I'll close this post with a photo of the beautiful bride-to-be. I couldn't hope for a sweeter daughter-in-law (wedding date: July 28!): Thanks for visiting! Hope you enjoyed these! Sherry
