I wholeheartedly believe in buying couple’s gifts off of their wedding registry. We took a lot of time picking out the items on our list, thinking about what we needed to make our place a home. On the other hand, I really like giving a personalized gift. Some of our favorite things that we got for our wedding were the personal touches, the hand-made and thought felt gifts – like a cross stitch sampler from my sister, a personalized frame from my cousin, and a thoughtful wedding statue from my parents.
I made this frame for a friend who got married in June. I bought the flower from Joann in the paper embellishment section and picked up the slightly distressed frame from there as well. Then, I used my Silhouette to cut out their names in vinyl.
A frame like this would also make a great birthday or Christmas gift.
Now, this picture below is obviously NOT Kim and Dave, but I thought I would get a picture of a couple in the frame. Too bad we don’t have more natural lighting in our place for pictures – instead, we have a lot of blue light, purple light, and green light from the stained glass windows.
I link up to the following parties, including Serenity Now, Shabby Nest, Whipperberry, Homecoming, Homestories A to Z, Finding Silver Pennies, Organizing Junkie, The Weekly Creative, Thirty Handmade Days, and the Monthly Pinterest Challenge.
