Wax Paper Flowers

My sweet friend Lori Oles has a fabulous article in the newest Somerset Life Magazine featuring her gorgeous wax paper flowers. She inspired me to make some of my own...her instructions are in the article. I had so much fun making these for an upcoming bridal shower...

Winter Bridal Shower

I'm giving a special bridal shower for a close friend's daughter in a few weeks! Here are the invites I made. I "created" the paper doll from "The Knot" bridal site. The site lets you create the exact bride and her gown! I used "free hand motion" with my sewing machine to "write" her name on each invite. I fed each invitation in my printer to print out the wording on the inside.





I made scented tags as door prize gifts for the guests. I scanned a vintage Vogue wedding pattern, sized it, and then made multiple copies. I stained the original white lace with strong coffee. As a final touch, I dabbed Bath and Body Works Eucalyptus Spearmint Oil on the lace...mmmmm!
