I'm catching up this weekend while traveling and hiding from hurricane Irene. I came across shots from one of my projects for the beautiful Cruse wedding last month. The bride asked to borrow our birdcage for the wedding cards. With a little more time, I personalized the sign for this outdoor vintage-inspired gathering.
I used an inexpensive pre-cut wood sign from Michael's and painted it white.
I used the Cricut for the lowercase letters from the actual invitation glimmer brown paper and glued each letter directly on the wood.
I hot-glued leftover natural-looking ribbon directly on the sign, making sure to not have any wrinkles or lifted edges.
Using a pink polka-dot patterned paper, I outlined the wood and cut an exact shape to cover the ribbon and finish off the back.
Just weaving the ribbon through the cage wasn't keeping the sign in place, so I ended up hot-gluing the exposed ribbon to the sign for safekeeping.
It was great to use this birdcage for the wedding of great friends. Who else wants to borrow?
