For my sisters wedding anniversary, I decided to make her card and gift tag, armed with a selection
of very cheap and recycled bits and bobs. I bought an old wedding photograph at an antiques fair for 50p. I photographed this and printed it several copies of it. Using cold tea, I tinted some plain paper and white ribbon. Once the paper was dry, I printed out a few phrases, and cut these out too. I used some silver tissue paper for a backing. To get a neat "hand torn
" look, use a fine paintbrush (I used a lip brush) and paint plain water where you need to tear. This makes it easier.
I used prit
stick glue to glue the printed picture and the phrase onto the tissue, then when this was dry, I sewed a few beads and pearls on before gluing
onto a plain white gift tag (which had also had the cold tea treatment).
I also glued a tag onto a card too.
I think that these would make nice wedding invites, especially if you used your parents or perhaps grandparents wedding photographs.
Many thanks to Carolyn
for the inspiration.
