Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue...

Hello lovely people! 

I have been waiting patiently to share this wee post with you!  Our friends recently got married :) and I didn't know what to get them.  So I made them this wee picture that had their names intertwined and the date they got married.

I had really wanted to do a papercut design with their names and hearts etc but as you can see this didn't go well!  

It was so difficult to cut and I kept accidentally tearing or ripping the delicate design.  After 5 failed attempts I went back to the drawing board!

I then came up with the idea of using pipe cleaners that were twisted into their names.  There are lots of really good examples of this kind of art on pinterest. 

I used embroidery floss and wrapped it round the pipe cleaners until it was all covered.  Use a tapestry needle to tuck the ends under the thread as this makes it look neat and tidy.

I cut a piece of dotty paper to size and put it in a box frame.  I also added the date they got married and some love heart buttons to finish it off.
