Lauren & Adam's wedding {project} no. 3

Lauren and Adam's wedding is just a few weeks away and I thought that I'd share with you another project that we worked on for the wedding reception ... their table numbers.

Lauren's vision for her vintage inspired wedding was to keep the colour palette neutral and try to mix lots of different textures. We really wanted to use burlap somewhere on the tables and the table numbers seemed like a natural choice. Lauren found these great vintage looking frames in three different sizes at Ikea and they all looked great with the burlap inside. We couldn't decide which frames we liked best and ended up selecting two different shapes because Lauren and Adam are going to have a mix of two different shapes of tables at the reception.

So here's how we put these together ...
Supplies: I designed clear number stickers and had them printed online at Sticker You. Sticker You has fonts that will allow you to design your own numbers online. I also used burlap ribbon, kraft cardstock (which we now sell in the Toronto store in the wedding section), frames with glass (ours were from Ikea) and a bone folder (which we have in the Creative Studio at the Toronto store).
1. I cut the burlap and kraft cardstock to fit the inside of the frames (our frames were 5"x7"). The burlap was inserted so that it was directly behind the glass and the kraft cardstock was behind the burlap. Then I added the frame back.
2. The clear number stickers were applied to the outside of the glass. Carefully centre the sticker in the middle of the glass and when you are happy with the position you can use a bone folder to make sure that there are no large air bubbles under the sticker. It's that easy.
