Hey y’all! Did ya miss me?? Feels like it has been forever since I posted! I have been working hard on some 2017 goals that I had set for my vinyl business this year. But Jessica has been busy posting some amazing things; if you haven’t had a chance to check them out yet, be sure you do!
Okay, need to take you back to 2016 for a minute for this one. Yes, I know I have really been slack on posting my projects! Last year the hubby and I were overjoyed to hear that his brother’s girlfriend said “Yes” to the big question and that wedding plans were under way. I was honored when Brittany (his wife) asked me to make a few things in vinyl for the big day! One of the items I was lucky enough to help with were some boxes to hold the wine corks and bottle caps from the wedding reception.
One thing I didn’t love about some of the examples I saw on Pinterest were how large some of the boxes seemed. Even with a lot of corks and/or bottle caps they tend to look too “empty” to me. So I decided to go with some smaller shadow boxes so they would look a little fuller at the end.
I got one white and one black shadow box from Michaels craft store and then put a pencil mark in the center so I would know where to drill my hole. For the hole I had to bust out some of hubby’s tools since my little pink tool kit wasn’t going to get it done lol. I used a power drill and a Forstner Bit to make the hole.
I was so nervous that they glass might break or that the wood would split; but everything came out perfect! Then I just cleaned them up real good and took them inside to apply the vinyl wording.
Then a few wooden letters (also from Michaels) painted in their wedding colors to top it all off.
Here is the finished project. I was so bummed that I didn’t get a good picture of them at the wedding or once they were full later. I got swept away in the fun and love of the day!
And here is a glimpse at the happy couple and me and the hubby all ready for the festivities!
