One of my favorite gifts to give is the wedding invitation decoupaged onto a plaque. This gives the couple something to commemorate their wedding with. It creates a beautiful decorative piece that the couple can put on a shelf or hang on the wall. To do this project, I start with getting the plaque and decoupage paste at the local craft store. There are a variety of plaque sizes. Take the card and either tear it in half so it is one piece and or cut it so only the top part of the card remains. If you get some edging scissors, you can create a beautifully decorated edging. You can put beads around the outside of the plaque that look like pearls. These are in the bouquet artificial flowers area of the store. Here is a picture of some decoupage work on a plaque to give you a good idea of what an invitation would look like.
Now the bride and groom always have something to remember you by. I put my wedding vows on nice piece of paper and had it decoupaged onto plaques because at the time I hadn't learned how to do this technique yet. Seeing the vows on plaques had me hooked and I started doing it with wedding invitations when I was guest at a wedding. Do you like to decoupage? If so, what do you like to work on?
I love weddings! They celebrate the love of a man and a woman as they promise to love each other forever. We will ignore the 50% divorce rate in this fantasy. Picking out the gift is one of the most fun parts of the occasion for me. There is a right way and a wrong way to go about getting a wedding gift for the bride and groom. We'll take a look at different options throughout this blog. Hopefully this will make your next wedding gift purchase a little easier to pick out.
