Together Forever ~ The Wedding Issue

Our May Paper Crafters Sampler blog hop as arrived!  This month, we celebrate weddings.  The hop doesn't 'officially' begin until May 1st.  So if you're coming a day early, be sure to check back on the 1st to run through the entire hop.

 If you've already started the hop you probably just came from Laurie Forehlich's blog.

Our "Together Forever" issue offers ideas for invitations, favors and gifts for the bride and groom.  Each design team member will be sharing a small preview of the project they are offering in the May issue.

This month's issue offers the Pyramid Box template.  There were so many ways to use this box, it was hard narrowing it down to just one!  I decided to use it as a bridal party favor.  Tucked into each box is a pearl bracelet.  The template includes a lid, but I cut it off so the tissue could pop out of the top (it added some fun color).  Of course you can choose any type of gift to tuck inside or maybe just some chocolates.

The Pretty in Pink and Mellow Moss pair together so well.  Very girly.. 

I love all things nature and that includes bare branches.  The simplicity of the branch compliments the frilliness of the boxes.  The brances are held in a crystal vase with some epsome salt.  Clever huh?!

I hope you enjoyed my projects!  Now, if you select the button below it'll take you on over to Tiffany Bauer's beautiful pyramid box project!
