Helloo!!! It's my DT project day for My Thoughts Exactly!!! and you get to see more goodness from the Many Thanks Stamp set!
I just can't tell you how clever it is to make these sets all mix and match phrases! It's so fun to be able to put different sentiments together, and you get so much more out from one set by having the ability just use what you want. I haven't tried yet - but I think that I've got enough sets that I can make pretty cool phrases using various sets!
Anyway, I've been wanting to make these cute little 3D chairs for the longest time, and this project happened to be the perfect time to use it! The chairs are from My Grafico 3D Chair Favour Box Templates. I didn't really do anything to them - just cut them out the way they were. For just one of them with vertical slats, I actually took my hole punch and my handy scissors and cut them out myself. There was another chair in the file, which was the 'elegant' chair, but just didn't fit with my style for what I wanted to accomplish here :)
I spiced up these chairs with crinkled ribbons, charm from Making Memories AND I actually used my sewing machine to make cushions for these little chairs! I think that this is my first EVER real sewing other than doing it on paper! I was so proud of myself! (hehehe.. okay, all those seamstresses - don't laugh at me! This was a big step for me!) and I made a 'lace' border using Martha Stewart punch.
Anyway, here it is!
Pretty, isn't it?
The back of them...
My awesome chair cushions :)
See how perfect these stamps go with my project! Thesse cute envelopes that I used to stamp my sentiments onto are from SVG Cuts My Big Day SVG Collection. There are three different envelope SVG, and oh, so cute!
Oh, I even added on the cone on to the side of the chair (I meant to put a little bouquet of flowers, but couldn't find anything in my house that would work) I just rolled up one of those doilies that you can purchase from the baking section, and made it into a cone!
...and the chair even opens up where you can put little goodies in for the guests! Aren't these the cutest thing? I've come across so much cute and creative stuff for personalizing your own weddings - I would love to get married again! (well, to the same person, of course!)
Oh, and did you notice my good ol' flower topiary in the back of these pictures???
Anyway, that's it for today! Be sure to visit Lenae's blog, SugarGem, for more inspiration with these stamp sets!
