we were recently invited to a 10th wedding anniversary party. we decided to give the couple a money gift. of course, i didn't want to hand over just an envelope, so i chose to personalize the gift a little with a pot of flowers and some handmade paper decoration.
here is what i used:
needle and string (to make a garland similar to this mini-garland)
tooth picks (skewers would have worked a little better but i did't have any around)
alphabet stickers (by prima marketing) on the pot
i punched out the hearts and the flowers from the patterned paper, and made a little envelope to place the money in. the washi tape was used to wrap around the toothpicks (to hold them together but also to give them a prettier look).
i like how it turned out, and i'm glad that i remembered to take some photos of it before we handed it over!
