T&T Utterly Engaged FeatureFebruary 15th, 2011
Hi Friends! Apologies for being out yesterday, I haven’t been feeling well and I spent the weekend trying to rest up and recuperate. Hopefully you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day and good start to your week.
To kick things off here, I’m thrilled to finally share some projects I put together specially for the latest issue of Utterly Engaged! The goal was to create three projects that could be used during the wedding using mainly paper cups. I love the concept of taking inexpensive staples and transforming them into pretty wedding details. As we all know, weddings can add up quickly so finding ways to cut costs without it looking like it is a win win!
I ended up creating a simple wreath to be used during the ceremony or as decoration throughout the reception. By simply sliding the cups inside of eachother and securing with hot glue, this was a surprisingly easy craft.
For the second project, I wanted to create a centerpiece that would be both inexpensive and multi-purpose. I wrapped espresso cups in fabric and used them as planters for small plants. At the end of the event, guests could take these home and transfer them to their own gardens.
Lastly, 8oz. paper cups were dressed up with a simple paper wrap, filled with hot cocoa powder, marshmallows and adorned with a wooden spoon! Serve with hot water and encourage guests to warm up and take a cup home!
All the detailed instructions and more images can be found in the latest issue of Utterly Engaged along with a plethora of other amazing articles and contributions. Cheers!
