Upcycled Children’s Book Pillow Pouches

Cutest favour boxes! I can just see a favourite children’s book themed wedding! Tables named after children’s books, hole punched confetti from children’s books, invitations made to look like a page or cover of a children’s book…. I could go on and on! Someone has to do this and send me the photos!

I do love a piñata at a wedding. Keeping you guests entertained is top priority… the fact that this geometric WINK example is so damn gorgeous is just an added bonus! You can find a gazillion piñata tutorials on Google! Failing that, just buy this beauty!

diy Will You Be My Bridesmaid Cards

“Asking your closest girlfriends to be part of your special day should be exciting… and what better way to ask than through mixed media?!?” Julia’s Poppies Design

I love details, pretty packages and thoughtful notes. I love to gather magazine cuttings, fabric swatches, and colour charts for mood boards.

1

This tutorial is for inspiration alone… their are no rules. Just surround yourself with your favourite magazines (not just wedding ones), photos of your friends, fabric and ribbon scraps, washi tape, paints, a Sharpie perhaps, and a bit of sparkle and confetti, and run with your imagination! 

2

The calligraphed and illustrated templates for Maid of Honor, Matron of Honor, Bridesmaid, and Flower Girl come in four colour palette options with purchase of their white metallic pocket closures. You just have to print out the desired quantity at home and start crafting! You can purchase a set from Julia’s Poppies on Etsy.

Antique Lace Crown Headbands for Princess Flowergirls

You can find these little vintage lace crowns on Etsy. They are hand-painted in white, champagne gold, or silver… but you could paint them yourself in your favourite shade of neon pink if you like, then attach them to headbands and place them on the darling little heads of your flowergirls!
