Wedding Stationary - Part 2

As well as the cream cardboard boxes used for holding stationary items a wicker basket and hamper were also used.  The hamper basket was set out for guests to put their wedding day cards in and was decorated with green grosgrain ribbon, paper flowers and bunting made using X-cut nesting dies.  A matching luggage label was made using Sizzix thinlits dies and attached to the handle of the basket.  Luggage labels were also used to decorate our dressing gown coat hangers and the confetti basket.


The wicker basket was used to hold little cartons of confetti which were given to guests as they left the church.  A Stampin' up Sizzix die was used to make up these little cartons from card printed with the same Nitwit Collections backing paper as the invitations and each were filled with biodegradable natural petal confetti.  More paper flowers and green ribbon decorated the handle of the basket along with the confetti labels.


The dining tables were each given a wild flower name and Elaine made heart shaped labels to tie to the flower jars on the dining tables using her own photographs of each one.  The top table was primula scotica, which was no surprise, seeing as it was the elusive little flower she had managed to see on the holiday when she and Andy became engaged.

I used these same photographs to decorate the seating plan board which added a lovely splash of colour.  The board itself was Elaine's old peg board so we did a little bit of upcycling in the process.  Spellbinders oval and heart dies were used to cut out the different layers and green ribbon, diamante hearts and paper flowers were added.  The decorative edge around the board was made using off cut or reject pieces from other projects with ribbon pleated over the top.


There's just one piece of stationary left to write about and it makes a little story of its own so I'll save that for the next post.

Thanks for reading today
