A productive day crafting with my daughter today. We made decorations for her wedding. She now has 3 cute suitcases to use as her card box. we decorated the top one with some lace that we tea dyed and printed the letters out in a fancy font to spell out cards. trimmed them into rectangles and distressed inked the edges. Also inked some little pegs to use to attach them to some twine for the inside top of the suitcase. Then we decorated a very large coffee jar with some hessian and the rest of the dyed lace and added a pretty lace and hessian flower. Back to the computer to print out a tag saying Advice Jar and then again to make some little cards to go into another old box for people to write on. Then after that we got back to sewing those doilies onto the sheer curtaining for her photo booth. We still have quite a few to do!!!
