DIY: Decorate a pie box

DECORATE-A-PIE-TAKEAWAY-BOX-WITH-WASHI-TAPE

I love a bright and cheery takeaway at an event. You feel so much more a part of the action! Consider gifting a piece of pie or cake to each guest with a pie box that you’ve decorated with some fun washi tape. It’s so easy to do and worth just the little bit of effort.

Materials: pie/cake boxes (I got mine from A La Modo Etsy shop), washi tape in a few different colors,

MATERIALS

Step 1: Assemble your pie box.

Step 2: Tape up the sides in stripes. Guests will have to slice the box open with a knife if you wrap it all the way around or cut slices into where the box joins together.

So easy yet impactful!

DIY: Make an origami diamond napkin ring

diamond-ring-napkin-ring

How cute are these origami napkin rings? I thought they’d be a fun detail to add to a wedding. Once you figure out the rhythm of the folding, it’s actually quite simple and wouldn’t take too long to make.

MATERIALS

 

Materials: gold glitter paper, scissors, white piece of paper, glue

To make the diamond:

Step 1: Fold your white paper diagonally and crease. Cut off the remaining paper. Your paper should be in the shape of a square.

Step 2: Fold and crease at the other diagonal.

Step 3: From the top right point, bring the top down so that it reaches the mid point on the left side. Crease.

Step 4: Repeat this all the way around the square.

Step 5: Look at the diagram below with the fold lines to see where you should have made all the creases.

Step 6: Look at the second diagram below (with the four lines) to notice where you will bring in all 4 sides to form the shape of the diamond. These four lines will be indented and the center point will pop out. You might have to carefully finesse the center so that it continues to stay popped out. The areas surrounding those small four lines will be folded in.

Step 7: Once the points are created, you’ll glue each side together to hold it in place.

To make a gold band:

Step 1: Cut out a strip of glitter paper about 1″ wide and 9″ in length.

Step 2: Curve it with a big paintbrush so that it easily rolls into a circle.

Step 3: Cut a hold into the band where you’d like to place your diamond.

Step 4: Add a dab of glue into the hole and insert your diamond and hold.

DIY paper doll bridal gift wrap

PAPER-DOLL-GIFT-WRAP

I have some friends who are getting married soon so I decided to personalize wrapping as a part of their gift. I’ve done this technique before (with Valentine’s Day wrapping) but thought it would be fun to try a bridal version with a bride and groom. It’s super easy to do whether you’re artistic or not.

YOU-WILL-NEED

What you need: craft knife, pen, pencil, wrapping paper, black and white paper, tape

Step 1: Wrap the gift. You will need to find where to place the paper dolls.

Step 2: With a pencil, make a shape of a bride in the position you’d like it to be on the gift wrap.

Step 3: Do the same with the groom.

Step 4: Take the gift wrap off the gift.

Step 5: With your craft knife, cut out one half of the paper dolls on a mat board.

Step 6: Fold over the other half to form the 3D shape.

Step 7: Place paper behind the dolls and secure with tape. I used black for the groom and white for the bride.

Step 8: Draw in some details like a necklace and shoes for the bride. Add in a white bow tie for the groom.

DIY: Make a ticket photobooth

TICKET-BACKDROP

I found these beautiful ticket rolls at the nearby party store and couldn’t help myself. But, when do you ever really need a roll of tickets? When you’re throwing a party and need a backdrop of course! I bought them in these lovely sherbet colors which brightens up any event. It’s so easy to do and the effect is fun and energizing.

Steps: Just roll out some tickets and tape each one up on a wall or photography stand.

It’s that easy!

pumpkin-number-for-wedding

If I were to get married in the fall, I would totally embrace the season and go all out with the pumpkins. I love the colors, the organic shapes, and the possibilities. There’s so much to do with them! I thought it would be fun to create table numbers with their sinuous stems.

Materials: glue gun, chipboard, gold spray, scissors, pumpkin with long curvy lines, pencil

materials

Step 1: Either hand draw the number on chipboard or use Word to create a large number that you can cut out and transfer onto the chipboard with a pencil.

Step 2: Cut out the number.

Step 3: Spray the number gold on both sides.

Step 4: Glue gun the number on the stem.

Done!

It’s such a simple and easy way to add a little glam to your tables! Have fun!
