How to Display your wedding mementos

 

I have come across some cute ideas on how to display your wedding invitations and other mementos after the wedding.  Hope you find some inspiration and give some of these DIY projects a try.  ~ Congrats ~

1. Create an ornament with your invite.
Cut the invitation line by line so that you have many thin strips.  Wrap each section around a pencil to curl the paper.  Slide the strips into a clear glass ornament.

Dry out your bouquet and drop small flower buds into a clear glass ornament.

6.  Create a  display case.
I took a basket ball display case and placed: my bouquet, my groom’s boutonnière, my garter, hair comb, and our favor inside.  Our cake toper is resting on top of the case.

7.   Use a Picture Frame.
Get a double picture frame and have a wedding picture on one side, and your invite on the other.

8.  Get an engraved picture frame.
Place your photo in the frame and have your wedding invitation wording engraved on the side.

9.  Superimpose your Vows or the Lyrics to your 1st Dance over a photo.
Print and frame the image or have it printed on a canvas.

10.  Create a “book” from all your wedding cards.
I’ve seen many different ways to do this if you google it.  You can buy a 2 ring binder and punch holes in your invite.  You can punch 2 or 3 holes in every invite and just use string or twine to hold the “binding” of your book together.  You can use 1, 2, or 3 large rings.  If you are good at scrap-booking, you can make a cover for your book.   A cover can be as simple as taking a card board box and “upholstering” it with fabric.
