WEDDING "BOWS"

Welcome to the Cut Cardstock blog! 
Today is about weddings and I have made a super simple square box with a scalloped edge lid, a few rectangles to use them as cards/tags to display the bow pins and a few rosettes just for decoration.

I chose the Classic Linen cardstock as my main cardstock. I like the texture and I like its weight. It was perfect to hold and display the small guests "mementos".
I also chose the lovely Gold Glitter cardstock to complement the Linen cardstock. 

The box and lid are from a Cricut cartridge called "Sweet Tooth Boxes". I cut the box at 4 inches and it is a square box.
The heart border is from Ribbons and Rosettes. The hearts are super tiny but cut amazingly well on the Gold Glitter cardstock.  I used the double-sided score tape to assemble the box and lid.


The bows are from a digital shop but Cricut has many to choose from. 
I added a thin rectangular gold strip around the heart cards to continue the gold and white color combination.
I used a glue gun to attach the pin to the back of the bows and a piece of square foam tab to adhere it to the card, as seen below. 
A small white pearl was then added to the center.

A few more pics of how this small ensemble is coming together.

The rosettes were made with one-inch strips of the Classic Linen cardstock and scored at every 1/4 of an inch. 
A gold heart was added to the center.
All Done!
A Svery pretty and simple ensemble for any event, in this case, a wedding. 

Hope this project helps as an inspiration to you all.

Take care!
and a huge thank you for all your love and likes.

Enjoy the new team!
