A framed print with registry office coordinates as a personal, DIY wedding gift
That special wedding gift - you want it to be personal, romantic and unique, but without it being tacky. Not the easiest of tasks! Fröken Su has prepared a fantastic DIY idea for you; a personal and stylish wedding gift.
Creative and personal wedding gifts are in high demand. This is not always as easy as it sounds. A gift should reflect the wedding couple and be personal for good measure. In a nut shell, a suitable gift can be a real challenge. So, today, a wedding gift idea that is not only very personal but also a lovely reminder of the special day. The framed coordinates of the registry office, where the happy couple said, ‘I do’. The anchor, which has been a running theme throughout the wedding stationary, also has a place on the print.
WHAT YOU NEED:
• White card stock
• A picture frame
• A small circular craft punch
• Mini stamper with anchor design
• Ink pad Balance Blue (Deep Dark)
• Design software, printer
• Scissors, glue
THIS IS HOW IT IS DONE:
With the help of your chosen design software, create a text to fit one page. Make sure this matches the size of your chosen photo frame.
The design should include:
• The coordinates of the registry office.
• Names of the wedding couple
• Wedding date
• Where the wedding took place
• Anchor image
If you are a calligraphy expert or have beautiful handwriting, then these are also options, especially if you don’t have access to a design programme on your computer.
Punch out a small circle from white card, using a circular craft punch, and then add an anchor to the circle with the mini-stamper. Stick this circle onto the centre of the print, where you have left a space free for this purpose. Allow to dry.
All that is left to do, is to frame your print in a beautiful picture frame of your choice.
On that note,
