After the wedding I kept wondering what I should do with our wedding invitation. I wanted to keep some and do something neat with them rather than just keeping them put away in a box. Then, for New Year’s Eve we were over at a friends house who just got married as well. That’s when I saw it. I saw what I was going to do with our invitation. Someone had made a Christmas bulb for them using their wedding invitation. So tonight I sat down to make one for ourselves, but also for my sister-in-law who just got married (her wedding shower is tomorrow)!
Here is what you need:
2 5/8 inch Christmas Bulbs (Look in glass section at craft stores not in Christmas area)
Extra colored paper that goes with wedding color
Cut invitation and paper into stripes. Different lengths and widths gives it some variety.
Twist paper around pen.
Put paper into bulb.
Attach ribbon and tag/charm.
Then, this is what you have! A nice keepsake or a cute little gift!
Now you know what you can do after the wedding with your invitation!
What ideas have you seen done with wedding invitations?
Until Next Time- Truly Love,
