Download and print the faux lettering worksheet and use it as a guide to write on these glass jewellery boxes. You will also need a white fine tip water-based Sharpie paint marker and painter’s tape.

Clean the glass before starting. Cut out the lettering as shown above and tape it to the back of the  glass lid. Trace the lettering using the Sharpie marker. If you make a mistake, it’s easy to remove the paint using a damp cotton swab or tissue. Allow the paint to dry a few minutes before handling.

Do-It-Yourself Labels on Wine Bottles:

23 diy_bottle

Sure you could just add a mini wine bottle to the gift box but isn’t this so much nicer? Print a photo onto plain white paper and trim it to fit your bottle. Make sure to cover the existing label and use a piece of decorative tape to keep the paper label in place.

Do-It-Yourself Packaging:

24 diy_packaging1

Make sure that your proposal boxes are as pretty on the outside as the inside using ribbon, real or silk flowers, gold foil party confetti and gift tags. Instead of a gift tag, add a pretty hand lettered detail to the box using a gold Sharpie paint marker.

Stay tuned, the next proposal box post will be all about the flower girls!

Product Spotlight: Shadow Box Photo Frame

With shadow boxes becoming a popular keepsake trend, the options are endless when it comes to how you use it! This versatile shadow box (with built-in picture frame!) is one of our favorites because of the endless ways you can personalize it. Create one for your best friend, family member, or even just to keep for yourself. Place it on a shelf in your home or you can hang it on a wall since it comes with the necessary attachments. Here are three unique ways to keep your favorite memories on display.

Personalized Etched Shadow Box Picture Frame

featured above: Shadow Box Photo Frame with Script Font Etching

1. Best Friends

There are many gifts you can give your best friend, but one that speaks to the personal memories you share together definitely takes the reigns. Start by selecting your personalized etching from these selections. Then, print your fave picture of the two of you to fit into the back panel and fill the shadow box with trinkets and tokens that remind you of good times. Some ideas could be concert ticket stubs, photobooth photos, handwritten notes and anything else you want to include.

Personalized Etched Shadow Box Picture Frame

2. Wedding or Anniversary

Whether it’s yours or someone else’s, these shadow boxes make a great wedding or anniversary gift for the same reasons as mentioned above. Choose a unique quote or personalize it with the couples’ married name in a fun script font as shown below. If it’s a wedding gift you can still include a photo, then the couple can replace it with one from their wedding if they choose. Then, to make it even more special, they can store their vows or even petals from the bouquet as a reminder of their best day ever.

Personalized Etched Shadow Box Picture Frame

3. Party Décor

Last but certainly not least, these fun frames make an awesome addition to any celebration. Choose an etching that fits the style of your day, then add some 3-D contrast with a photo or texture placed inside the back of the box. (We’ve even included a few of our own designs that you can download for free at the bottom of this post!) After the event, change it up! Add a picture and some mementos from your travels, your wedding or anything you’d like to keep on display in your home.

DIY Wedding Wednesday: Pretty Packages for Your Bridesmaids

pretty packages

Couple weeks back we shared our two pennies on how to pop the big “will you be my bridesmaid” question to your BFFs and it all went something like this, “Make it sparkle. Make it pretty!”. If you missed the post, check it out {here}. And because we’re total girly girls, we got so caught up in all the fun that we decided to come up with a couple more super sweet ways to show your besties you adore them and can’t see your big day going off without them. And just like with our last post, making it sparkly and pretty was the direction of choice.

Message in  a Bottle

Go for the surprise factor and forgo the usual boxed presentation for a non traditional container that’ll throw her off of what’s inside, a darling monogrammed pendant necklace. And, we love this little glass corked bottle, made all that much more lovely with a touch of lace filler.

DIY Wedding Wednesday: How-To Pop the Big Question (To Your BFFs)

will you be my bridesmaid

He popped the big question. You hollered out an enthusiastic “YES”! The champagne was poured and so now you’re off to the planning board. And what’s one of the first things you’re likely to quickly decide on? The girl crew who’ll stand by your side throughout the whole of your wedding planning  journey. It’s a list of names that will no doubt be made up of childhood friends and close family members, all of which are women you simply can’t live without. Why not take the opportunity to show them just how much they mean to you by making the way you pop your “will you be my bridesmaid” ask something extra special. And when we say special we mean pretty and sparkly of course. Sound like a plan? Then here’s everything you need to make it happen.

Presentation is Key

OK, so the bling is what’s best but don’t overlook how you present it. We’re loving the current trinket tray trend, made that much better when personalized just for her.

Bring on the Bling

Diamonds maybe a girl’s best friend, but so are bracelets, and charms, and chains. Really, you can’t go wrong when it comes to the gift of jewelry.

Let the Card Do the Talking

Complete the look, and the package, with a personalized gift tag that says it all, because chances are you’ll be too choked up to talk.

Put Your Name On It: Personalization 101

Bridesmaid-Lifestyle-Shoot--067

Personalization is a key element to creating a look for your wedding that is entirely unique to you. Whether it is the addition of your names, monogram or wedding date, every element adds an extra special touch to your décor. Here’s a sneak peek into the ways in which we create beautiful, personalized products that help make your wedding the best day ever!

Glass Printing

Using a technique called Pad Printing (otherwise known as tampography), our in house production team take a printed 2-D image and apply it to glassware with a sponge-like pad. The image is printed onto this pad, then the glass is pressed down into it allowing the pad to wrap around the glass and impose the printed design onto it. We use this technique for glassware favors such as mason jars, wine glasses, shot glasses and more!

Canda-Bar-14 Modern-Fairytale--132

Digital Printing

Otherwise known as flat printing, we have an in-house print department that produces all of our stationery, stickers, clings, printed envelopes and even printed goodie bags using a high tech digital printer. Our personalization suite allows you to provide all the information your guests will need on your invitations, and with so many stationery collections to choose from you can be sure to find one that matches your style.

Modern-Fairytale--229 Dreamy-and-Sweet--163- favors-editorial--021-EDIT Modern-Fairytale--294 Modern-Fairytale--112

UV Printing

Using a state-of-the-art ultraviolet printer, this is how we produce all of our printed aisle runners and photo backdrops. Ultraviolet (UV) printing simply means we use UV inks that dry with the help of UV light, instead of traditional inks that dry by allowing chemicals to evaporate over time.

Modern-Fairytale--027 Modern-Fairytale--030

Heat Pressing

With the help of an industrial heat press, we apply a printed 2-D printed designs to acrylic cake toppers, handkerchiefs and tote bags. We also personalize our burlap aisle runners and table runners this way but because the fibers can interfere with the heat press, we personalize each of those by hand using irons. This way we can ensure your product’s personalization lasts and always looks fabulous!

Dreamy-and-Sweet--117-

Foil Stamping

When you order a set of napkins from Weddingstar, you will receive them foil-stamped with your design of choice. You can take your customization one step further by selecting one of our 26 popular color choices! Personalized napkins are a popular trend for weddings and other events such as holidays, birthdays, baby showers, bridal showers and even anniversaries. The addition of foil to our napkins adds another level of luxe. This method can also be applied to our paper goodie bags, ribbon our are brand new faux leather compact mirrors.

Looking for the perfect personalized napkin for your special event? See all our designs here.

Laser Cut Detailing

Most commonly used with our acrylic or wood veneer signs and cake toppers, this technique allows us to create unique designs in a variety of styles. Our in house design team creates custom designs that are then programmed into to our laser cutting machine. When we receive your order and specialized design, this machine will cut the design out of a solid sheet of acrylic or wood veneer, creating a one-of-a-kind piece just for you on your wedding day!

Dreamy-and-Sweet--030- DIY-Dressed-Up-057-edit Modern-Fairytale--193-edit

Laser Engraving

Laser engraving is a similar process to laser cutting, except that the power of the beam is less such that it does not cut right through the material. The result of this is a permanent personalized etch into either our wood, metal, leather, acrylic or glass products. Our laser engraved products not only add to your wedding décor, but they make wonderful keepsakes in your home for years to come.

Bridesmaid-Lifestyle-Shoot--026 Vintage-Vignette--052-edit Modern-Fairytale--281 the-contemporary-guest-book Boho-Creative--077_layers

Embroidery

Embroidery adds another level of prestige to products such as chair banners, hankies and our soon-to-arrive tote bags and silky robes. Industrial embroidery machines allow us to produce multiple orders at one time, as this is a very popular option with our brides. Get an embroidered item for yourself or share the love! Embroidered items make wonderful gifts for your bridesmaids and really show how much you care.
