We're guest posting over at Make and Takes today. It's a super easy table runner made from book pages. Check out our tutorial!
I made the original ruffled paper runner (out of wrapping paper!) for a shower I helped give last week for a Lasting Memories friend. It was SO fun to have a reason to make fun paper decorations. The colors we chose were black, white, and aqua. I went through my paper stash (both physical and digital) and came up with a banner, a couple of buntings, and some coffee filter pom poms. My husband couldn't quite get why I was spending so much time making paper decorations for one little party. I simply told him, "It's what I do." His response: "Well, whatever makes you happy." Exactly. After 11 years of marriage, I'm glad you finally figured that one out, Love.
The bride-to-be, Miss London of Such Sweet Tierney. (Check out her Etsy shop when she gets back from her wedding week. She is super-amazing.)
This bunting was probably my fave. I cut different doilies out of patterned paper with my Silhouette machine. Then I cut them in half and stitched them together on my sewing machine. The original idea came from a fabulous friend on this post. Thanks, Beth!
Yes, I kept it all. I need to think of a reason to have another party so they don't go to waste. :) Tea party at my place, anyone?
