Wedded Bliss! Timeless Tuesday #217

Welcome to this weeks Timeless Tuesday Challenge.  I am the hostess and this week is all about weddings! With summer around the corner, so are lots of weddings or wedding planning. My challenge to you this week is to create a project or card that has to do with, yep, you guessed it... weddings!  I have decided to go a little out of the box in creating my wedding "package" in hopes of giving some old ideas a new look!

As you can see, I have here a fan for those warm, outside summer weddings, a rice cone to celebrate afterward, and a tissue pouch for your guests-  Of course the tissue is to wipe away those tears of joy! Here is a close up of the top of the cone:

I used the April new release set of Bees and Blossoms which I found to be quite nice to use for a wedding.  I used the following Copic colors for the flowers and bee:

For the fan, I colored in the blossoms and cut around to have it popped up over my Perfectly Pierced Victorian Oval die set.  I stamped the background using the Damask Background stamp (retired) while the green ribbon is some wonderful raw silk ribbon I have had in my stash.  The background stamp was a perfect size to make the fan and I rounded the corners for a softer look! I completed it by stamping the sentiment from Old Fashioned Florals on the bottom corner and some pearls on the die. 

The rice cone is one I made using a 5"x 5" piece of Flourishes Classic Cardstock in Ivory and stamped the image where I wanted it once it was to be rolled into a cone.  I would suggest a lighter paper or cardstock when making a cone such as this.  It will make rolling the cone a lot easier!  I then colored it and rolled it up using some Scor-tape to secure.  I then determined where to score the top flap so it can connect to the cone.  I punch a hole into the cone and flap for the twine to thread through along with the sentiment banner.  I stamped and cut out the bee to be popped up on the flap.

The tissue pouch is one that I actually was making for my wedding 12 years ago that is from Martha Stewart. It uses an entire 8.5" x 11" sheet of cardstock, again, lighter is better, scored on the long side at 2", 5", and 1".  Accordion fold and fold back the ends the length of the tissue and tuck into one another to hold.  Decorate as you wish!  I used some crochet ribbon and twine to wrap around the top and popped up one blossom cut out to use as the center image.  I then added the sentiment and the bee to complete it.

I hope you enjoyed my old, yet new wedding ideas!  Don't forget to check out the other wonderful projects by the Timeless Tuesday Team! Thanks for stopping by!
