Going to the chapel... Finally!

So, as I wrote in a previous post, my sister is finally getting married in August after being with her fella for going on eight years... And I have just finished their wedding present...

My sister doesn't know that I write a blog so I thought it would be ok to show off her wedding gift...

My sister likes everything very modern and chic so she can be a bit of a nightmare to buy for because if it isn't 'just so' then you know about it! However, her fiancé has no problem with most things so they balance each other out!

I wanted to make them something that was unique but also timeless that, hopefully, they would keep for years and years. So, I came up with the idea of using a box frame and tiles to create their initials and the date of the wedding...

For the backing I went through my huge collection of papers I have got from magazines... My collection is HUGE because I don't really make cards but you never know when they could come in handy...

I chose a very simple and classy paper, cut it to the right size and stuck it to the back of the frame. The tiles were bought from Etsy from a shop called Button Lane (who were super quick and easy to buy through). The letters were from my stash!

And here we are... A present fit for a wedding? I hope so!
