This flower looks a bit fuchsia in the pic but it's really the same dark purple as the ribbon!
The center of the flower on each garter is a bit different! I wonder which one the bride will choose to keep! Hope she likes them!
So, I had such a great time with the flowers for the garters that I put together some extras! What shall I use them on?
Well, I was asked to make a card box....I couldn't wait to start! I searched all over this town for a box that would work (something that wasn't big enough to hold a body), impossible! I tried to order something but the shipping was ridiculous! I mentioned to my Mom-in-Law that I needed a box and again she came through for me! She had just the perfect size box but it needed to be repainted. So, I went to work....it took about 12 coats of dark purple paint to cover the Modge Podged decor.....finally, it was ready to do the crackle technique the bride had liked! The box didn't have feet so I added little, round, wooden doll heads (they have a flat bottom so I could attach them to the box) to the bottom and painted them purple too! Add the crackle medium, let dry, paint the box white and wait for the cool crackle to start! Wow, it was looking great but needed some decor! So, I pulled out the box of purple and white ribbons I picked up for the garters and other fun stuffs.....added them in layers to the box....attached two of the cool flowers I made and wow.....the box looks awesome!
You can't see the feet, they are hiding in the background but here is the front of the card box!
Again, the flowers appear lighter than they really are due to the lighting but you get the picture!
I hope the bride likes the box.....I can't wait for her to come over next weekend to pick them up!
Shhhhh, don't tell her where to look for the pics, she may want them to be a surprise!
Just a reminder....I painted Tom's shoes for the wedding as well.....everything is purple, white and black. If you didn't see the shoes....here's a couple pics:
It's all coming together! I am having so much fun....what else can I make?
