In light of these thoughts, I decided to make a personal gift for my friends. Another picture frame similar to the first one I made HERE. It seems to be the most popular thing on my blog. I used their wedding invitation, save the date card, envelope and rsvp. It has become my favorite type of art to make. I think it turned out great. In light of my reflections, I also decided to make my own version of a recipe book inspired by the one given to me. I hope they like it!
This is the 4x6 picture frame. The purple paper was the envelope the invitation came in. That was so useful! From working on the last 'wedding invitation picture frame' I learned that a mistake in cutting can be costly. So this time I made several photocopies of each invitation/announcement I was going to cut up. I could cut up the copies with no worries and once I had decided how I wanted everything, then I cut the originals.
For the recipe book I used a photo album. The front is also made out of the wedding invitation.
Decapitated wedding topper. Haven't been able to find the grooms head but I'm hoping it will turn up at our next move.
My favorite art piece by Joe Penrod.
A little sample of the care and hard work that went into Michelle's recipe book.
