Wedding gift - Ornament...

I saw the idea for this ornament on Pinterest. I don't have the original link, sorry. It was very easy to make and I think it is a wonderfully sentimental gift. I took the wedding invitation and cut it into thin stips. (I cut out each line.) Then I rolled them into curls. I used a poking tool and wrapped it loosely.

Next I pushed the rolled paper into the ornament and filled it up.
The sentiment I stamped onto vellum and layed it over the little flourish that was at the top of the invitation. I then added a large chipboard H and grey ribbon.


-Large plastic or glass ornament. (I used plastic).



-Wedding, shower, or other invitation

I also sprinkled a little glitter into the ornament and rolled it around to give it a little bling.

Very easy and lots of fun. There are so many possiblities for how to customize this and different events it could be used for. I'm a huge fan of personalized gifts and using a wedding invitation is a great way to really add a sentimental touch to any gift.
