See How to Make Great Wedding Crafts for a Beautiful DIY Wedding

We are wrapping up a week of Wedding Craft inspiration and thought we would do a little recap. Please pin this page as a reference or share on facebook. We encourage you to pull from these design ideas and mix and match them to create what you need. For example, Kyriakos table decor almost matches Kassy’s banner perfect. With a little tweaking on each design, you could easily create a full array of decor for a wedding.


Create a Matching Wedding Set – the Invitation, Favor Box & Placecards by Roni Johnson.

As always, Roni outdid herself by creating three dynamic matching papercraft projects featuring a free download for a favor box. Using the Imagine’s Color of the Month (and Pantone’s color of the year) Ultraviolet as inspiration for the color scheme.

A Simple, Elegant and Inexpensive Wedding Table Setting by Kyriakos Pachadiroglou

Kyriakos has a knack for jewelry and table decor. He certainly shows off this knowledge in this post where he creates a pull tab card, napkin ring, cutlery placeholder and wine glass placeholder for a lovely DIY shabby chic style. One super fun element we love in this design is the doily stamp. Yes.. that is a stamp not as an actual paper doily.

How to Make Wedding Flowers from Coffee Filters pink roses

Flowers are one of the most expensive parts of weddings and yet it’s difficult to picture a modern wedding without copious amounts of them. When I got married I had far more time than money (we had a two-year engagement) so I used that time to craft all the paper goods, decorations including the flowers and even part of my wedding dress. In this video, I’ll show you how to make four types of flowers out of coffee filters that I’ve dyed with Fireworks Craft Spray and Walnut Ink, making them completely customizable to your wedding, shower, or party theme, as well as how to turn them into boutonnieres and small bouquets.

How to Use Delicata Ink as a Resist with VersaFine Clair

How to Use Delicata Ink as a Resist with VersaFine Clair by Jennifer Vanderbeek

While trying out my new VersaFine Clair inks I was stamping them onto scrap cardstock that already had a few things on it, including some Delicata ink. That’s when I noticed something very interesting: the Delicata seemed to be resisting being covered up by the VersaFine Clair ink! Wanting to be very sure what was happening, I tried it on purpose and found that yes, indeed, Delicata ink acts as a natural resist when VersaFine Clair is stamped on top of it. This is a great technique for layering background and foreground images or adding a subtle all-over pattern to different stamps, giving your finished project a nice, cohesive look. And it’s just plain cool!

How to Extend A Stamp to Second and Third Generation Stamping

by Jennifer Vanderbeek

How to Extend A Stamp to Second and Third Generation Stamping

When you have an ink that holds its image strength as well as VersaFine Clair does, creating a card with multiple shades and tones is incredibly easy. By using third generation stamping for the background, the full-strength VersaFine Clair stands out beautifully while, of course, blending seamlessly. I used the same technique with the hearts of first and second generation stamping to let the primary image shine through while letting the smaller hearts be accents. I’ve found that I can get a full five generations of images from a single inking of VersaFine Clair so there’s plenty of tones to choose from.

How to Make a Notebook Cover with Fabric by Jennifer Vanderbeek.

Whether you’re decorating a pre-made notebook or putting the finishing touches on a book you’ve made yourself, there’s nothing that puts it over the top like custom endpapers. In this project I used the same stamp for the cover as the end papers for continuity and even added a string closure to keep it snugly closed as the book gets filled up in the coming year.

Make a Girls Night Out Theme Card with VersaFine Clair

by Jennifer Vanderbeek

Make a Girls Night Out Theme Card with VersaFine Clair

The inspiration behind this card was three-fold: the yummy richness and name of the VersaFine Clair ink, the little black dress stamp I carved making me think of Girls’ Nights Out with friends, and the continuous image technique I’ve been seeing all over Pinterest. Only in my version, I used an embossing folder for the continuous image enhanced by a swipe of Nocturne ink to create a rubbing effect.
