I absolutely love this project and would suggest it to everyone who is attending a wedding or has attended a wedding. It's a great addition to whatever gift you're giving the Mr & Mrs and they will surely treasure it.
Just a reminder to write down the wedding info before you add all the strips to the ornament and can't make out the wedding ceremony/reception address if you're planning to bring it to an upcoming wedding. I may or may not have not done that and now I'm going to have to ask a bride this week where her November wedding is because I can't see the invitation anymore (surprise spoiled). Learn from my mistake y'all!
when I started taking photos of this process I realized I never shared our wedding invitations on the blog when I was doing our wedding recaps so you're seeing them for the first time now. The photos do not do them justice as the ink is embossed and the paper is a shimmery light grey. We picked them out at Swoozie's in Dallas (LOVE that store!) and as I've mentioned before I'm big on traditional designs in all areas of my life and these were exactly as I always envisioned my invitations looking. One day soon I'll show the whole set of them along with our programs that I designed myself. I absolutely love our invitations and love that I have a few extras to play around with and cherish.
invitation (wedding, birthday, etc.)
clear glass ornament w/ removable topper
ribbon of your choice (optional)
monogram sticker (optional)
scissors or paper cutter
after the invitation is cut into strips showcasing each line of the invitation, curl them around a pencil, pen or whatever you choose
insert each curled strip into the ornament
apply the monogram to the ornament if you like and add a ribbon bow to the top
Add to your tree and enjoy!
