My D.I.Y Engagement Thank you cards

6th June 2013

23 May 3

For my engagement party I ended up getting a little creative. I made a cake stand, some tissue paper floral centerpieces and the thank you cards. I thought I’d post some tutorials on how I got on and here’s the first- the D.I.Y Thank You cards. They were super easy to make, inexpensive and I enjoyed creating them.

thank you cards 1 I bought a plain pack of 50 A5 cards and envelopes from hobbycraft for £5.99 (I think that’s the right price) and a single gift wrap pack from WHSmith for £2.99 (again, I think that’s the right price) I then drew my love bird shapes onto tracing paper and traced over the images onto the plain side of the wrapping paper

thank you cards 2 I even traced the thank you writing so I’d get a similar look on each card.

and that’s it all done

The reason I’ve been AWOL…I got engaged!

23rd May 2013

Yep readers, the Mr and I have finally got round to having our engagement party!- We were originally meant to have it back in Sept but ended up shifting the date. And while the proposal was months ago until the families get together and bust some bhangra shangra moves while high on the whiskey phiskey it doesn’t count!

I enjoy getting a bit ‘crafty’ and added a few homemade touches to the party- from my D.I.Y cake stand, tissue flower centerpieces and thank you cards. I will be sharing my tutorials with you in the coming weeks but here’s some taster pics.
