DIY Anniversary Gift

I have a fabulous guest post for y’all today.  Holly is sharing an adorable DIY anniversary gift.  Take is away Holly.
Holly here from Ribbons and Glue sharing with you an Anniversary Gift I recently made for my parents 40th Wedding Anniversary.   Instead of giving them a plate, plaque or frame, I decided to make my parents a personalized 40th Anniversary keepsake out of Paper Mache numbers.

DIY Anniversary Gift -- give this fun gift for any wedding anniversary!


My parents have been happily married for 40 years now and my initial gift idea was to create something using past and present photos.  Unfortunately, I live 2500 miles away so I wasn’t able to go digging through old boxes and it kinda ruins the surprise asking Mom to send some pics.

So instead of the photo idea, I spray painted Paper Mache numbers with Krylon Sterling Silver Spray Paint and personalized them with black vinyl.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the Echo Park Swirls cut file and lettering then embellished the numbers with ribbon, rhinestones and Maya Road Stick Pins.

Ruby is the color for a 40th Wedding Anniversary and since I couldn’t use real rubies on my project, ruby ribbon was the second best option.   I really like the way this project turned out.  I just mailed it off this week and this post will go live before they actually receive there gift.  Oh well, it’s the thought the counts.

Thanks so much Holly for for being with us today!  Y’all be sure to visit Holly’s blog as she is an amazing crafter!  Her DIY anniversary gift is perfect for anyone you know that is celebrating this year.

Family Blending Sand Bottles and Jars for Weddings

Today we have the fabulous Laura Kelly with Laura Kelly Designs guest blogging with a DIY wedding idea.  Her family blending sand jar is a lovely idea for joining two families during a wedding ceremony.  Read on to see how to make this fun craft. 
Hello, it’s Laura Kelly here sharing one of my INKlings (a sudden burst of a creative idea that I turned into a diy project)!
Often times at weddings, the couple getting married is looking for a way to celebrate the blending of the two families.  Here is a DIY bottle (could also be done with a jar) that can be used to share the sands with family members as a token of love when the ceremony ends.

Family Blending Sand Bottles and Jars for Weddings -- add this fun idea to your wedding ceremony to celebrate your blended family.

You will need:
Bottles (I got mine at the local craft store
Beads
Beading wire
Wire Cutting Tool
Tags to tie on if desired (I made mine with cream paper, laminated them then hole punched)
 
I found these awesome bottles for $1 each at the local craft store.  They remind me of the kid that you would use for a message in a bottle.

Family Blending Sand Bottles and Jars for Weddings -- add this fun idea to your wedding ceremony to celebrate your blended family.

Use the wire and bead to create decorative rings around the neck of the bottles, adding your tags and twisting to close up then trim any excess wire.

 This is me at my wedding with our four children pouring in their sand.

We had ALL of the attending family members add a small amount of sand then we sent them all the bottles with our thank you notes.  To keep the corks on, we used a little hot glue.  Everyone loved them and shared that they felt so loved and appreciated.  I am so glad we did it and hope this post inspires others to share and spread the blended love!

 
Love,
Laura
