I came across this project over at Charcoal & Crayons and fell in love with her little BLOOM tags! It's such a creative use of materials, and would make adorable, affordable table centerpieces at a wedding!
I contacted Andrea to see if we could include the DIY in the wedding zine. I was so inspired, that while I was waiting to hear back I decided to have a go at making some tags, but with some different materials. I decided it was time to use the copper foil that's been sitting in my drawer for about three years.
I'm pleased to announce that I'll be including Andrea's project in the zine (yay!)
I thought I would share my project inspired by Andrea's here. Just to warn you, copper foil is kind of dangerous to work with because it's so sharp! So please exercise caution.
LOVE foil tags
You will need:
Cheap Scissors - the good ones will get dull with this project!
Rotary cutter with pinking edge or scalloped edge scissors
Rotary mat or scrap of cardboard
Baling twine (don't forget your wire clippers) or baker's twine
4 small Orangina bottles, labels removed, or small vases of your choosing
Cut 1 to 2 inch squares from the foil sheet using your cheap scissors.
Fill with water and flowers! Make sure you check your spelling. ;)
Some more ideas! You could also do one for initials (J+K for example), Spring, your child's name, your cat's name, something romantic in French (ooh la la) or whatever else you can think up. Happy crafting!
