Crepe and Lace

A couple of weeks ago I made these wedding cracker favors for the Bride's Cafe blog. Paper crackers are such a classic, and I'm especially looking forward to making some more around the holidays - I'm thinking about icy, silvery ones for New Year's. For this wedding inspired version I layered cream colored crepe paper and gold lace netting. Find full instructions at the Bride's Cafe.

A Tiny Topiary

Since Thanksgiving is coming up at the end of the month here in the States, some place card projects are in order. These mini potted topiaries for Project Wedding fit the bill, and of course can also function as escort cards and favors. Find full instructions at Project Wedding. I added an extra autumnal touch by gilding the mini terracotta pots with a gold leaf kit (available at craft stores for around $8) before beginning the project.
