Paper Flowers

My sister came home from France a while after I came home from Germany, and she had spent a lot longer without seeing everyone, so I decided to make a HUGE welcome home party for her. I invited family and friends over, and made a dessert table, decorations, and cute little gift bags. I saw a tutorial on how to make Paper flowers on Jessica’s Blog How about Orange, and tried them out. I made a tutorial myself, but I made it in spanish, so I am adding the english names for everything underneath. They look really gorgeous, you can make them in any color to decorate anything you want, and they are actually a lot of fun to make =)

Wedding Invitations

I love making wedding invitations – the entire process of making them. From meeting the bride and helping her chose from hundreds of papers, colors, shapes and fonts. Getting the guest list and waiting around for them to be printed, making sure they are unique and every card is perfect… watching the reactions on people’s faces and knowing no one in their right minds would ever throw away this invitation.

So after the crhistmas card mania of the last few months I thought it would be nice to look back on wedding invites, just so that I can forget about the red and green ribbons (I dont want to see a christmas card ever again).  Here are some of the designs I have done before and a couple I just put together and thought worked really well.
