A little DIY

Remember a few days ago when I posted about a little project I had done using divine twine? Well I wanted to show it to you all. I volunteered to help out with my sister in laws escort cards for her wedding last week. I had purchased a bunch of manzanita branches for Thanksgiving centerpieces last fall and they've been sitting in our house taking up space and collecting dust ever since so I figured I should find a good way to put them to use. So here is what I came up with.

Here is a little close up. I made mini tissue poms (these were the most time consuming part). And the actual cards were cardstock with the names printed and I stamped them with a mum stamp from Paper Source. I then used mini clothespins to actually attach the cards to the divine twine that was hanging from the branches.

Here is the bride to be and on the left is her fiance helping to hang some escort cards.

Here are some of my inspiration images.
