Marian Ballog created this full suite of ideas for a beautiful pink & black bridal shower. A complete set with invitation, menu card, party favors, gift box, gift sachet and fun raffle tickets. Many of these ideas can be modified and used for a variety of party types.
Bridal shower invitation:
Any flat card can go inside the pocket to share all the party info, and
there's also room for a Recipe Card for the new bride made with the Pink Persimmon Ric Rac Rectangle set.
Luncheon Menu Cards:
Now for the decorations! Stamp Lottie's head onto floral paper (watch out for leaves in the eyes or nose!) then trim. She wears a small crown charm and peeks out from behind a vintage frame that was once part of a 1900's cabinet card photo album. Add a ribbon strip at the top left and attach a yo-yo circle rescued from an old yo-yo quilt that had seen better days....and then top THAT with paper flowers, or an old earring or rhinestone brad. You could even stamp Lottie's name at the bottom of the frame using her name stamp. Finish with a ruffle of machine or hand-gathered crepe paper. Frost edges with bits of mica glittered for a sugared effect.
Tie a few ribbons and some tulle on the handle. Now those pretty paper dolls have a pretty place to hang out in between holidays or while waiting to be given as gifts. The Lottie Luggage can even become a holder for stamp set packs.
Scented sachet teeny pillow:
Her Royal Highness Tag:
There are 2 examples of stamped white organza drawstring bags with the bridal couple image (from Vintage Cupcake) and a letter "B" (from Soda Pop Alpha). The image stamped on the organza fabric has a very see-thru quality. You can also use the image stamped onto a paper tag or punched circle, and then run a ribbon through a hole in the tag. Then attach to the organza bag separately, like a hang tag.
If you do stamp directly onto the organza bag, insert a small cardstock "sheild" inside the bag to keep the back layer of the bag clean from ink.
