DIY: Say NO to Ribbon Fray!

If you are a perfectionist, like me, I'm pretty sure you hate ribbon fray. I personally love using ribbons on craft, invitation and gift wrapping. But when the ribbon ends start to fray, they could ruin the whole look of the design.

I've seen tips on craft blogs, mostly using heating tool or candle. I've tried the candle method but I find it quite time consuming, especially when there is an order of 200 invite sets to be fulfilled. Besides, it also requires a little skill. Otherwise your ribbon could ended up with black mark at the edge or even curled up, if the ribbon melted too fast.

Mint + Ivory + Gold Wedding Invitation

DIY Vintage Teacup Candle Tutorial

Mint happened to be one of my favorite colors at the moment. In fact, I'm obsessed with mint, both flavor and color. So, how could it be possible for me to do nothing after seeing this pretty image?

No, I didn't make any candle with mint flavor. Well, not until I get the right cup and the ingredients. I have another plan for these lovely colors. Something to do with paper, of course ;)

By the way, you should really click on the link at the bottom of the image. It's a step by step tutorial posted by Everything Fabulous. It sounds like a really fun project.

DIY Escort Card / Hang Tags with Masking Tape

Here's a little DIY idea for crafty brides out there. It's super easy and fast to put together, hope this comes in handy, especially if you are having a rustic/ shabby chic/ southern wedding.

All you need are:
+ tags (pre-made or made of cardstock)
+ masking tape/ fabric tape
+ thread/ ribbon
+ single hole punch
+ pair of scissors

I used hang tag die cut with scalloped top punched out of heavy Kraft paper. You can also use any pre-made tags or cut a simple tag shape from any cardstock with color of your choice.
And I was using this masking sticker set.

Doodly Flyday - I

It's flyday Friday..! Getting into your weekend mood yet? I call mine "pre-weekend mood"..
I just took a little break from work and had a quick sketch.
Seeing quite a few of my friends getting married the past few months (and several more within the following months). Plus, my lovely customers I've been working with to create their wedding invitation and reception stationery. I was quite inspired.

Doily, doiley or doilie?

Which one is it, actually?

If you have read my previous post about cards made of Ikea catalogue,  you'll notice that I like to use paper doily, doiley or doilie as embellishment. Since then I've been creating with doily (I decided to just spell as d-o-i-l-y). Why not? They are so pretty and delicate.

I first started with this wedding invitation.
