Spring Wedding

Posted by Maja Nowak

6 May, 2014 - , ,

A very good morning to you, Maja Fans! It’s Maja here with a new creation for you 🙂

Our May Moodboard’s main theme is wedding. And so I decided to share some wedding inspiration. I don’t know about customs in your countries, but in Poland money is quite a popular wedding gift. I think it’s really convenient for the newlyweds, as they can spend it on what they really need and want, not giving that away to everybody through a wedding gift list 😉 And so I thought of an elegant way to giving the money, as the envelope seemed so cliche to me 😉

mdwedI used papers from the Vintage Spring and Summer collections to decorate the sides of the box.

mdwed2Then I glued the lid together, decorated with papers, tied some vintage lace and arranged flowers to look like a wedding bouquet 🙂mdwed1When you remove the lid the box…explodes! 🙂

mdwed3…revealing the inner sides with one side designed to write in the best wishes 🙂

mdwed4…and the remaining three sides with strips of paper attached so that you can slide in some banknotes. I also put some suggestions on the strips, such as “for the new home”, “for a crib” and “for your dream holiday”.

mdwed5The central element of the wedding box is a paper cake that I made (I knew I would use some of the mathematical knowledge SOMEDAY! 🙂 ) and decorated it with mini roses and guipure lace:

Other: dies: Spellbinders, Magnolia; Pearl Maker WACO; lace, flowers – from my stash.


And what are most popular wedding presents at your countries?

see you soon!
