My close friend Laura is getting married this fall, and as a bridesmaid, I volunteered to create a few special projects for the wedding. Here's a preview of one of several exciting projects!
Laura asked me to make these chair signs, as she loved these phrases in place of the typical "Bride" and "Groom". I hand-lettered, drew, and painted wood slices, and attached suede cording to hang them. I think they turned out super charming, and will look great in the space where the wedding will take place, City View Loft. This test photo was taken at Lillstreet Loft, where they are also adorable.
I so enjoyed creating these, that I am planning on making more designs to list on Etsy. If you would like to order your own custom hand-painted bride and groom signs, please send me a message!
The origami flower fever hasn't slowed down!
Right around Easter I decided to make myself a flower crown out of the paper ribbon roses I've been making. At the end of April I'll be attending a grown-up "prom" dinner dance, and I needed something new to accent my old prom dress. Well, this idea just catapulted after I was so happy with the results of my first crown.
I've been having a ton of fun playing with different flowers, and I even added another rose model to my repertoire. It's a simple origami twist rose, and I wish I had started using it sooner!
I even started doing the obvious thing and making the new roses out of comic books, and creating comic book flower crowns. Wouldn't these be perfect to wear at a comic con? I'm not a person who has the guts to full-on cosplay, so something like this is more my speed :) Really, any of these would be cute at any summer festival or event. What do you think?
If interested, I just made 3 comic book flower crowns available on my Etsy shop. Get them while you can!
