It's been a busy start to the new year.
I was battling a few colds and had some emergency travel to visit family, but I was able to squeeze in time for this Wedding Favor project for my sister's wedding in January.
She wanted a "tropical/beach" theme and I thought making ornaments out of starfish would be a nice favor.
I originally started off by drilling a small hole through the arm of the starfish, but quickly switched to hot glue. I put a small dot of hot glue on the back of the center of the starfish, then pushed my jute string into the glue and covered it with a little more hot glue to make it stick. For the tags I "tea stained" the paper using my Winston and Newton water colors (saves my hands a bit from the ink blending tools for such a large number of tags).
For the Mr. and Mrs. starfish, I cut a bow tie out of black craft foam and the veil out of a tulle bag. I hot glued both of them to the starfish.
For the table markers, I used the Quinn Alpha stamp and Newton's Nook Tranquil Tides for the Starfish and coral Inks were Momento Tuxedo Black, Lawn Fawn Lobster, Ranger Purple, and Distressed Ink Tea Dye ..
To make these table markers I used a 12x12 paper
I scored at 2 inches and 5 inches
Thanks for stamping by!
